Smart factory is able to bring a fully integrated automation solution to the plant, simplifying material management in the manufacturing process.

 

According to MilTech, the Smart Factory utilizes a variety of control devices such as sensors, electric motors, drives, switches, relays, and networking technologies such as wireline, wireless and RFID. It also imports integrated systems such as Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES), Information Technology (IT) Systems, Programmable Logic Control (PLC), Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), and Surveillance and Data Acquisition (SCADA) to meet the specific needs of the manufacturing unit.

 

The Smart Factory is also using a variety of industrial robots such as articulated robots, SCARA robots, Cartesian robots, cylindrical robots, etc. in the processes such as painting, welding, shipping and lifting.

 

In fact, the main driving factor of Smart Factory is increasing demand for process efficiency and energy savings. Advanced technologies such as machine-to-machine (M2M) communications allow smart factories to eliminate the waste of time caused by delays and process changes. In addition, along with the advent of IoT and services, the integration of manufacturing and engineering processes has grown dramatically.

 

With active applications in the manufacturing industries such as automotive, transportation, packaging, mining, metals, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, oil and gas, the smart factory market is expected to witness tremendous growth in the coming years. As a result, companies and enterprises have invested heavily in exploring unexploited opportunities in applications such as industrial robots and control devices.
