The fourth industrial revolution
We're in the midst of a unique time in our history. Since the dawn of the industrial revolution, we've really been limited by the technological capabilities of the machines themselves. Now, with IIoT-capable machinery, we move beyond the physical capabilities of individual machines or lines and move to just how many lines you can control with one, singular controller.
We are truly in the midst of an industrial revolution and many of you in the marketplace are already a part of it. Industry 4.0 and IIoT are umbrella terms to cover the fusion of technological advances that transform the manufacturing and production industries all over the world.
Our white paper summarizes exactly what Industry 4.0 is and the benefits it will bring to factories in several different industries, identify technologies at its core and present how Domino is helping to shape the revolution in the Coding and Marking space - and how our unique Coding Automation solution is at the tip of the IIoT spear.
Beyond the catchphrases
Let’s look at what Industry 4.0 actually means on factory floors and look beyond the fancy buzzwords that you see in just about every trade magazine today. It means that every individual machine, system and set of processes across the factory and throughout the enterprise will be integrated, and connected to the internet.
It is a complete revolution on how we look at existing automated systems like assembly line robots or packaging equipment. In some areas it’s easy to blur the lines between 3.0 and 4.0, in other areas new technologies, such as 3D printing and augmented reality, it will drastically change the way we do things.
This unprecedented level of connectivity allows information to be captured at every point on the production process and throughout the supply chain. The resulting OEE data can then be analyzed and managed to make every manufacturing sequence as fast and accurate as possible.
