Industry 4.0

Industry 4.0 is a digital transformation of manufacturing industries. Intelligently large-scale networking of your industrial machines and processes through information and communication technologies. Transform your manufacturing data and interconnect big data, workforce, processes, services, systems and industrial resources and establish Internet of Things (IoT). Exploit previously siloed data and realize smart industry, deliver real-time decision making and enhance productivity, flexibility and agility

Improve your processes with Industry 4.0

Industry 4.0 allows you to manage complex manufacturing process. Gained flexibility will empower you to adapt your production in the face of new circumstances and market conditions, and to shorten the development period with the use of highly innovative means.

Reduce manufacturing cycle time, improve product quality and increase efficiency in small batch manufacturing. Industry 4.0 brings vertical integration from isolated systems at each level to vertically integrated information flows that enable full business processes.

Data from smart devices and machines is consistently captured and stored in the cloud via network connection. Such storage facilitates remote data access of inter-connected devices. Also, Industry 4.0 provides better control and understanding of every aspect of your operation.

Look at the technology behind Industry 4.0

Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is and will be the key fundamental component of smart factories. Industry 4.0 platforms are changing the manufacturing industry. IIoT provides process automation that allows you to manage all connected devices remotely.

Industry 4. and IIoT provide a better understanding of how connected devices work, so you can make better decisions. IIoT enables you to collect data from devices and improve efficiency, productivity and quality with  the analysis of this data. Predictive maintenance allows you to save money, while real time data analysis enables you to prevent costly downtime.

Meet the key benefits of Industry 4.0

  • Flexible production with a man-machine skill transfer,
  • higher efficiency of inter-connected and self-controlled machines due to optimal process planning,
  • energy efficiency due to innovative solutions capable of limiting energy waste and provision of real-time control over production.
  • Quality assurance automation reduces the amount of non-compliant end products,
  • Continuous data capturing and processing enable change traceability and production process optimization.
  • Easy monitoring of machines’ operating conditions – even via remote access,
  • easier maintenance of optimal machine conditions and prevention of outages,
  • better machine control that enables preventive maintenance planning,
  • better spare parts management that prevents production interruption.

Take a look at Industry 4.0 use cases

  • RFID tags on bumpers enable traceability throughout the entire production and logistics process.
  • RFID tags contain all the information for managing production machines via Open Platform Communications (OPC) servers (Object Linking and Embedding (OLE) for Process Control).
  • Integration of data from ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) system and WMS (Warehouse Management System).
  • Identification of the cryovessels and their contents, using RFID tags.
  • Reliable identification even with imprecise vessel positioning thanks to a 400 mm range of HF read/write heads.
  • Data from multiple locations available and accessible thanks to their storage in the cloud.
  • The QR24-I/O link encoder detects swivel movement and thereby improves the clock rate of machines.
  • Using an IO-Link encoder instead of a Fieldbus encoder is a cheap solution that allows easier and quicker error detection.
  • Mechanical encoder failures are less common and resonator’s position is constantly controlled.
  • Mold identification is contactless by means of the inductive couplers NIC and TBIL-I/O-hub via I/O link.
  • Data and energy transmission is contactless with inductive couplers.

Some more Industry 4.0 use cases

  • The cabinet guard CCM with integrated optical sensor continuously monitors preset environmental limits inside the electric control cabinet. It measures the temperature and humidity in the cabinet, as well as detects the distance to cabinet door. The cabinet guard for Ex environment is also availabe.
  • When any of the parameters exceeds the preset value, the module reports it to the control level.
  • The data collection module also detects equipment wear: porosity of the seals, clogging of the filters.
  • Packages with medication are equipped with RFID tags, for tracking throughout the entire logistics process.
  • Machines equipped with powerful sensors capable of reading up to 500 RFID tags per package.
  • Captured data is constantly available in the cloud.
  • Records in RFID tags on the chocolate forms control the manufacturing process.
  • The RFID tag also has a built-in temperature sensor, from which the RFID reading head reads data without contact.
  • Flexible production systems that enable fast and trouble-free product changes.
  • Automatic form washing program selection.
  • Reliable, 100% quality control of individual vehicle
  • RFID tag sensors detect the level of moisture that has accumulated on the product after it has passed through the irrigation chamber.
  • The captured data are stored in the MES (Manufacturing Execution System) for analysis and optimization of the production process.
  • The RFID tag also has a built-in temperature sensor, from which the RFID reading head reads data without contact.
