Deploying new technologies in the industry is essential for those who want to position themselves more competitively in the market. Thanks to innovations, we can, among other advantages, obtain better results on the production scale, reduce costs and offer increasingly personalized deliveries.
Known as smart factories, the concept of industry 4.0 is one of the big trends when it comes to scale production. Among the innovations brought by this format are cloud computing tools, automation systems and the increasingly present IoT ( Internet of Things , or Internet of Things).
Improvement In Productivity Through Automation
Increasing productivity is certainly one of the pillars brought by industrial automation . In a reduced way, this impacts the sectors leading to benefits such as lower costs and losses, better profitability, error prevention and increased production agility.
Investment in machinery allows companies to achieve greater efficiency. In comparison to a person, an automated system offers a perfect execution, as they are equipped with an intelligent system that allows the exact and consistent reproduction of the programmed commands.
A worker is liable to make mistakes during the industrial process or handling of equipment. An automated system is exempt from this type of occurrence, since its operation is all done by a computer. This reduces the margin for errors and accidents at work.
This type of equipment is designed to work in extreme conditions such as very high temperatures, chemical processes, casting of raw materials and other high-risk variables.
Reduction Of Error Margin
Since all stages of production and their variables are measured by the main system and, commonly, this computer already has a program focused on artificial intelligence, the high precision in the execution of processes is one of the highlights brought by industrial automation.
The programs on this computer allow execution with security, precision and exact time to schedule a production. Without this technology, in fact, it is impossible to keep processes going at the right timing and with the necessary accuracy.
