The robot arms that are getting everywhere

The robot arms that are getting everywhere
Recent developments are opening new opportunities and catapulting the industrial robot arm into a journey around the production environment. Robots undoubtably take the drudgery out of many repetitive manufacturing, packaging and processing tasks. Engineers are generally fascinated by the idea of improving production processes and keen to integrate robots, so the decision as to whether one is used or not boils down to economics; operators want to see a good case made for the return on investment before giving the green light.

Digital industries and new growth opportunities

Digital industries and new growth opportunities
Industrial markets are reactive, manual in operational transformation approaches. Digital transformation is poised to help organisations pre-empt scenarios, become more predictive and adaptive. At the same time, the transformation journey is unclear, complex and lacks clear ROI benefits. On the benefits side, organisations could become negative latency enterprises, which means customers will predict issues that will happen and prevent them from happening in the first place.

Innovating to harness growth generated by Manufacturing 4.0

Innovating to harness growth generated by Manufacturing 4.0
The growth of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and cloud have given a huge boost to the adoption of radio frequency identification (RFID) technology in Manufacturing 4.0. The interconnectedness of devices has resulted in massive volumes of RFID data that needs to be managed and analysed, prompting RFID manufacturers to develop high-memory tags that can hold more information, software platforms with a business intelligence layer, as well as cloud-based solutions.

Real-time networking of Industry 4.0 factories

Real-time networking of Industry 4.0 factories
Supplier of standardised and customised embedded computer boards and modules, congatec, demonstarted the power of hard real-time communication over Gigabit-Ethernet at electronica 2018. This demonstration showed that real-time data, the base for most Industry 4.0 installations, can still be transmitted in time even when utilising a heavily loaded Ethernet connection.
