In packaging plants across the world, compressed air systems create significant energy waste. Pinhole leaks in air lines, sticky valves and other inefficiencies cost huge consumer packaged goods (CPG) manufactures and small contract packagers alike substantial amounts of money.
With the emergence of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), packaging original equipment manufacturers are finding significant opportunities to improve the operation of pneumatics technology, helping users boost energy efficiency, enhance safety and cut downtime and maintenance costs.
Schneider Electric announced that world-leading futurist Jim Carroll will deliver the keynote address at its Innovation Days: 2019 Foxboro and Triconex User Groups conference, taking place Oct. 21-24, 2019, in Austin, Texas.
The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) allows companies to collect and store seemingly unlimited data. For packaging line managers, project managers and plant managers, this translates to data about their line performance, productivity and line equipment.
Rapid advances in Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) technology is bringing connected devices, systems and people together to deliver actionable results and improve safety, productivity, sustainability, efficiency and reliability. Coupled with the emergence of IIoT is a continuous evolution of standards to help original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) build safer machines and likewise, help machine users and manufacturers improve the ease of maintenance while minimizing operational downtime. Today, machine users and manufacturers not only want to ensure new and existing machines are safe, but that they are connected for diagnostics, flexible in design, reliable and ready for now as well as the future.
