Leveraging Industry 4.0 on the Plant Floor
Tom Craven, VP of Product Strategy, recently wrote a subject-matter expert article on Industry 4.0 that was featured in the December issue of The Journal of Blow Molding. Craven’s article, “Blow Molding and the Connected Factory,” explains in detail how [blow molding] factories can leverage machines, devices, sensors and people to connect and communicate via the internet to reduce costs and maximize productivity.
The article covers benefits of hosted software providers versus on-premise or in-house software hosting, overall equipment effectiveness (OEE), data diodes, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and more. RRAMAC’s latest connectivity case study, “How a Manufacturer of Aftermarket Automotive Parts Increased Machine Performance by 7%,” was featured within the article along with diagram explanations to support Craven’s stance on cloud-hosted architecture versus on-premise hosted architecture.
