As Britain prepares for Industry 4.0 let's take an optimistic view

As Britain prepares for Industry 4.0 let's take an optimistic view
At the World Economic Forum (WEF) 2018, the ‘Readiness for the Future of Production’ report was released and it highlights Britain as one of 25 countries in a positive position to benefit from Industry 4.0. However, much of the media coverage following the release of the report has centred on the threat these technologies pose to jobs. Here, Martyn Williams, Managing Director of automation software provider, COPA-DATA UK, explains why automation could create more jobs than it replaces.

Robotics increasingly integral to Industry 4.0 success

Robotics increasingly integral to Industry 4.0 success
Instead of me facing you with another rhetorical question about, what technology we will see in 2018, or how digitalisation is all anyone wants to talk about, let me tell you about what I learnt from semiconductor company Infineon. The big focus for the company here is robotics, and more importantly; how does robotics translate into business opportunities? Well first of all the question is not necessarily how, but why? Infineon is a company that has four types of lead applications so why is robotics such an important focus?

The future of production at SPS Drives 2017

The future of production at SPS Drives 2017
Production is a large part of the engineering industry, and everyone is concerned and focussed on the future; Industry 4.0 and digitalisation. Therefore, a Smart Production Tour at SPS Drives seemed very fitting and exciting. Engineering Specifier went along to the three hour event to find out from a range of companies all there was to know about ‘smart production’ from WSCAD, Beckhoff, Balluff, Bosch Rexroth and B&R.
