ROBOTICS AND AUTOMATION

OPTIMIZING ROBOTICS, MAXIMIZING UPTIME

February 23, 2022

OPTIMIZING ROBOTICS,
Fully automated assembly lines with industrial robots are highly efficient, fast and precise – as long as they are in operation. When unplanned downtimes occur, the economic damage can be immense within just a matter of minutes. Prevention is better than repair. Using high-performance lubricants during regular maintenance of industrial robots prevents unscheduled downtimes, optimizes the robotics and maximizes the uptime of the assembly line. In this white paper, you will
learn more about the right lubrication for your industrial robots.

EMERGING TOPICS FOR LONG-TERM RESILIENCE IN MANUFACTURING

whitePaper | October 23, 2021

Artificial Intelligence (AI) will increase the level of intelligence in the manufacturing industry by promoting, inter alia, the matching of production and demand, improving quality inspection, increasing product yield, reducing product failure rates, and improving production efficiency.1 While the last decade of Industry 4.0 was determined by technology-driven innovation, the coming years will focus on data- and intelligence-driven innovation. In this perspective, AI is an enabler for the transition from smart factories towards intelligent factories with self-optimising and self-healing characteristics. While smart factories are capable of applying previously acquired knowledge, intelligent factories will be able to autonomously acquire new knowledge and apply it for self-optimisation purposes.

EDGE COMPUTING IN THE NEW OT ECOSYSTEM

whitePaper | August 3, 2020

Edge computing is one of today's leading disruptive digital technologies. Until recently, it was overshadowed by the Cloud with its power, scalability, and as-a-service platform capabilities. However, there is an increasing realization that both have their place in the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) environment and that Edge offers a number of capabilities and advantages that make it a key player in the new Operational Technology (OT) Ecosystem, as well as in evolving Operational Architectures.

Returnable Asset Tracking 101

whitePaper | July 13, 2020

There are different tracking technologies typically used in a production facility. Depending on the amount of data transmitted and the complexity of implementation each have corresponding price points. The manual manipulation of hand scanners requires time for processing and allows for error in recording. The cost of implementation is low, but systems require consistent investment of time devoted to ensuring accuracy. The cost to serialize assets for tracking is low, but the data can be damaged and capacity/flexibility for data storage is limited.
