Energy usage is a major factor associated with manufacturing facilities. Tracking energy usage at the plant, production line, and equipment level can help monitor and reduce energy usage, saving valuable resources.
The challenge is to manage the different manufacturing assets worldwide to improve production output, optimize energy consumption and make the system visible for all enterprise users via the cloud. This is a project for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).
Part 1 of 3: Because of the many facets of IR scans, this is the first of a three-part series which sheds light on an important part of a predictive maintenance program.
Two of the biggest names in the business—and two of the companies most interested in growing their profile in the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)—will collaborate on an industrial cloud platform.
Robots are continuing to take the manufacturing world by storm. According to the Robotics Industries Association, robotics orders have set new records, reporting a 14% growth in 2015 as North American companies placed orders valued at $1.8 billion.
