The increasing digitalization of the manufacturing sector means the era of the smart factory is now upon us. The fitting of myriad equipment with sensors, and the ability to collect, transmit and interpret data in real-time, is leading to previously unattainable levels of traceability and control. That is enabling tools, machines and people to communicate like never before. This trend, commonly referred to as Industry 4.0, is giving companies far better visibility of their industrial processes, ensuring that potential problems can be identified before they occur.
Here at Desoutter, we are committed to turning Industry 4.0 into products and services that deliver maximum benefit to our customers and partners. From reduced downtimes, to more flexible production processes with lower costs, Industry 4.0 has the potential to transform the ways organizations perform.
This dedicated book acts as a gateway to that transformative journey, explaining the origins of Industry 4.0 in a global context, and highlighting its impact on production environments. Ultimately, it’s a story of how Desoutter and its partners can work together to create the smarter factories of the future.
