Advantech is pleased to present our new Industry 4.0 focused website. The era of Industry 4.0 is upon us and industrial manufacturing companies are facing a strong demand to increase their productivity by realizing smart factories and smart manufacturing. With the advantages of Advantech devices and solutions - IPCs, industrial automation and machine automation technologies, hardware-software integration and various other solutions - it's now possible to foster the development of Industry 4.0.
Advantech has defined six solutions for Smart Factories developed with integrated automation and cloud innovation for Industry 4.0.
Using the integration of machine vision and motion, Robotics and AGVs (Automated Guide Vehicles) can reduce dependence on manpower, reach lean production and even unmanned production.
Machine Monitoring and Predictive Maintenance
Sensors can be used to constantly monitor essential production line equipment and the production status and data can be recorded and transmitted in real-time to the cloud for predicative maintenance analysis to increase productivity and reduce maintenance costs.
Equipment Monitoring and Optimization
The production line allocated automatic detection systems such as AOI, ATE and visual detection equipment, which improves test efficiency and product quality.
MES Integration and Production Traceability
MES production decision system can collect dynamic production process information, optimize production allocation, achieve advanced manufacturing and trace production process of products. Furthermore this production process information can be monitored remotely.
Factory Environment Monitoring
With IoT technology, the factory safety can be monitored for dust, gas, CO2, water and other hazardous material to optimize factory operation and ensure the quality of the factory environment.
Factory Energy Management System
Through IoT technology, the Factory EMS system provides the optimization of energy supply and consumption to reduce CO2 emission and factory operation costs.
Visit our new site to learn more about these six solutions. Each solution has multiple application stories, informational videos, and recommended product information.
