VIDEO: Is your Smart Factory smart enough?



12/8/2015

You’ve collected the data. Now what? Big Data does no good if it just sits there. That data represents untapped production efficiencies, competitive business insights, and new, brand-differentiating services—but only if the data can be effectively analyzed and shared. The Internet of Things (IoT) is a start, but more can be done. Intel and Beckhoff Automation have ways of enhancing IoT to drive innovation in the factory by consolidating systems with PC-based control technology. To fully realize the promise of IoT, disparate systems need to securely connect, interoperate, and communicate. A key step in capitalizing on IoT, and a related technology concept called Industry 4.0 specifically addressing the industrial or factory environment, involves establishing better horizontal (i.e., shop floor) machine-to-machine communications. This addresses the “islands of automation” issue in which machines and/or machine modules do not fully communicate with one another. Also critical is vertical communication to enterprise resource planning (ERP) and manufacturing execution systems (MES) (“shop floor to top floor” or “sensor to cloud”). This has implications for all levels of an automated factory, from optimizing production throughput to executing an advanced condition monitoring system by bundling all major functions on centralized architectures powered by PC-based control technology and the latest Intel CPUs. The hurdle is obtaining the data easily and via standard interfaces as traditional machine control technologies were not designed for built-in direct connectivity to ERP and MES. Full Article

VIDEO: Illuminating the Objective of Vision Inspection



11/17/2015

The way a vision system detects and collects data points can be a mystery to some. A vision system is a non-contact, non-destructive method for dimensional measurement and has the ability to “see” the features of interest vs. tactile measurement methods. The vision probe converts an image to a digital signal via a CCD camera and a frame grabber. This method allows vision machines to perform programmatic edge detection, auto focusing and pattern recognition. During this webinar we will go over topics including the benefits of gray-scale measurement, high-resolution measurement, and the composite coordinate system. Full Article

VIDEO: Implementation of Metal Additive Technology on the Factory Floor



11/13/2015

In recent years Additive Manufacturing (AM) has started to gain momentum in the medical and aerospace industries to manufacture production components.
