While stationary robots are well-established and important parts of many factories and production plants, mobile platforms and manipulators will become an integral part of your factory of the future. At the Industrial Automation Forum at Hannover Messe, Bruno Adam, our Mobile Business Director Europe, answers how the manufacturing process is evolving and why factories, driven by
At Hannover Messe we will show how you can innovate to industry 4.0.
In this blog post we already reveal why you should join the journey to Industry 4.0. Read on to learn more!
Industry 4.0 will help you to answer individual customer requirements, it will address the growing need for increased productivity and efficiency, but it will also address your social needs: supporting interactive collaboration between humans and machines.
Within Industry 4.0, the future envisioned by our founder, Kazuma Tateisi, is becoming reality and you can unlock the potential of this digital transformation. The fourth industrial revolution fits seamlessly into the model behind the SINIC theory, which Mr. Tateisi presented at the International Future Research Conference in 1970.
In the SINIC theory (Seed-Innovation to Need-Impetus Cyclic Evolution), science, technology and society share a cyclical relationship, mutually impacting and influencing each other.
In the future Optimisation society described by the SINIC theory, Mr Tateisi predicts that technologies that automate parts of our human intellect and sensations will form the foundation for future development. In this future society, people and machines will find an ideal level of harmony. Something you can realize in your factory today.
Trends like mass customization, shortest product-to-market times, and better use of existing resources can be accomplished by using the potential of digital transformation linked to Industry 4.0’, states Lucian Dold, Product & Solution Marketing, EMEA
How you can address the challenges of the digital transformation linked to IO 4.0
To address the challenges of this digital industrial future, we can support you in automating your machines with technologies leveraging on fully scalable automation solutions and seamless reusability of automation assets.
Our long industry experience and competences can support you to cover digitalization over the full lifecycle of any automation solution.
Digitilization will impact your entire business environment. We see many changes already on the consumer side, where smartphones and apps have disrupted long-established business ecosystems with unexpected value propositions and cost saving potential.
We can help you in selecting the best approach to successfully implement the digital transformation on your production floor.
Why digitizing your business is the next step forward for you
The fourth industrial revolution is just starting. The scalability of digital technology combined with the collective intelligence using emerging metadata sources can realize a huge disruptive potential for you. But we have a massive hype at present and the expectation to get dramatic results in a short time may not be fulfilled.
If you are able to see the real potential of digitilization and the ability to separate the hype from the real enablers, you can turn this into a real success for your production floor.
Our experience in digital enabling technologies makes us capable of realizing a digitilized production in our own factories all over the world (Kusatsu-JP, ’s Hertogenbosch-NL, Shanghai-CN and Ayabe-JP) and translate this know-how to your future needs.
In the spirit of the SINIC theory of our founder we will continue to utilize technology to realize new enabling solutions to leverage the benefits of fully digitized production for you.
How do we realize this for you?
Our 3i-approach to innovation by automation – integrated, interactive and intelligent – provides all of the core competencies and interoperable solutions required to master manufacturing digitilization and help you leverage this rapidly expanding global opportunity.
Our white paper outlines in detail how you can realize a smart digitalized automation infrastructure.
3 Important reasons why you should join the journey to Industry 4.0
1. The Connected Factory – Integrated
Seamlessly integrating your machine automation and corporate IT means you can generate, collect and exchange large volumes of relevant real-time data.
2. The Collaborative Factory – Interactive
By further enhancing the interaction between humans and machines on your factory floor you will be able to combine the intuitive, flexible, knowledgeable and adaptive capabilities of humans with the repeatability, accuracy, strength, speed, autonomy and connectivity capabilities of machines.
3. The Smart Factory – Intelligent
Enabling intelligent data analysis and evaluation capabilities in your factory means you can realize predictive maintenance, process improvements, customization, traceability and a reduction in resources, energy and waste.
Come and meet us at Hannover Messe to discuss how you can use the full potential of industry 4.0 to realize your smart factory.
