Edge Gateway Platforms are Helping to Make Machines Intelligent

Posted by Kari Grosser on Jan 11, 2019 11:00:00 AM

Industry 4.0 is the past, current and next big thing. The idea relies on sophisticated software and machines that communicate with each other to optimize production. Most machine builders are facing strong demands for providing their customers with the machines that deliver productivity, flexibility, efficiency and availability. The more innovative the machine manufacturer is, the better its position in the market. The advent of intelligent machines is enabling machine builders to innovate in ways that have never been possible before, for example, to ensure that machines and other automated equipment work at maximum efficiency with virtually no downtime.

Improved Quality Assurance for Enhanced Productivity

Posted by Kari Grosser on Jan 8, 2019 10:30:00 AM

The pharmaceutical industry is heavily regulated for obvious reasons. Above all, drug makers and associated manufacturers, such as pharmaceutical container makers, mush maintain strict quality controls to ensure the safety of their products, as any faulty products could adversely impact consumer health, to say nothing of severely damaging the image of the company at fault. As such, the industry is typically a relatively late adopter of any innovative technology unless the said technology is directly aimed at ensuring regulatory compliance. However, the power of IIoT-based asset management solutions to improve production line efficiency and reduce costs cannot be denied. Therefore, firms that fail to innovate put their competitiveness at a substantiation risk.
