Continuous asset optimization (CAO) combines smart manufacturing technologies with cutting edge statistical, data-driven and physics of failure modeling techniques.
Manufacturers share knowledge where and when needed via augmented reality (AR). See eight leading AR applications, according to IHS Markit.
Virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) can help maintenance engineers in process industries such as the food industry repair industry and reduce potential downtime.
Part 2: Plants and equipment are assembled from objects, and controls architecture should be too. Industrial programmers can realize the productivity of object-oriented programming (OOP) without the complexity by using object-oriented industrial programming (OOIP). See nine ways to determine if a development system supports OOIP.
Tulip, an MIT spinout company, has developed a customizable manufacturing app platform that connects people, machines and sensors to optimize processes on a shop floor.
Control Engineering's most clicked articles in July 2019 included stories about PLC programming languages, connecting a PLC to the internet, digitalization advantages, choosing the right enclosure, and more. Miss something? You can catch up here.
Georgia Tech researchers are using a supersonic jet injector to accelerate nanoscale additive manufacturing used for applications such as electronic circuitry and superconducting materials.
The agricultural industry is looking to technology to solve its challenges such as a labor and food shortage and robots are an important part of that strategy.
Digitizing reality is now possible for workers thanks to technology advances such as the Internet of Things (IoT). This new reality allows workers to benefit from augmented reality (AR), mixed reality (MR) and virtual reality (VR) to solve old problems in new and better ways.
Smart manufacturing and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)-enabled technologies can use real-time data to optimize processes and reduce costs for manufacturers.
