The factory of tomorrow needs to face a variety of different challenges. Decentralisation and plant modularisation, real-time error predictions based on digital process modelling, transparency and data consistency from product creation through to optimisation of use or even remote access-based system diagnostics. These are just some of the subjects pushing production automation forwards into the future.
As a ground-breaker and pioneer, Weidmüller already offers specific solutions which allow production companies to utilise innovative analysis technology and web-based service - even for their existing machines.
Towards the Smart Factory together
Among other things, Industry 4.0 includes intelligently networked technical systems. It is about the internet of things and the safe control of production from the cloud. Workpieces become active control components in the factory of the future.
