Industry 4.0 in Action

by Hamish Eccles on January 3, 2018 From Technology

Characterised by increased levels of intelligent automation and use of cyber-physical systems, the fourth industrial revolution (Industry 4.0) promises so much to manufacturers.

It’s crucial to talk about the potential of this new era – from increased connectivity to revolutionary levels of productivity and customisation – but wouldn’t it be great to see these possibilities in action?

In partnership with a number of organisations, Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence developed an intelligent manufacturing cell where these concepts are demonstrated throughout the production cycle. Watch the video below, as we show how:

  • Increased automation and the use of cyber-physical systems can drive manufacturing efficiencies and 100% customisation
  • Internet of things (IoT) concepts increase connectivity and the production and use of actionable information
  • Cloud-based data handling and the internet of services (IoS) enhance communication throughout the production cycle
