With the manufacturing industry gradually shifting toward the smart factory aspect of Industry 4.0, a multitude of digital applications have been introduced to shop floors. The proliferation of these applications has also led to new usage patterns. Computers installed on production lines are no longer regarded as a luxury but a necessity, because they better allow workstation operators and line supervisors to coordinate and control manufacturing processes in real time
Industry 4.0 is changing the way manufacturing industry operates. Increasingly more manufacturers are leveraging advanced technologies such as robotics and automation systems to improve productivity and efficiency. As a result, human–machine interfaces (HMIs) are becoming more important in their role in the digital connectedness of humans and machines. However, using the wrong HMI can lengthen development times and increase implementation costs.
Industrial automation systems with an open embedded architecture, with excellent expansion capabilities and high compatibility, flexibility and scalability allow integrating equipment into their systems, as well as helping them to meet the ever-changing market demands.
Ensuring high strength without increasing costs is key to efficient packaging of food and goods. Thanks to the integration of high-precision motors and high-speed data acquisition cards, packaging machines are capable of creating flexible automated systems, significantly reducing costs and increasing the productivity of production lines.
More and more companies are embarking on a transformation path to maintain a competitive level in the future and realize the importance of modernizing their production lines to the modern level of manufacturability.
Technical control plays a deservedly large role in modern production and product quality management. The efficiency of production depends on the degree of quality control perfection, its technical equipment and organization.
