Topic Track: Integrated Industries 
Session Topic: The Role of Intelligent Connected Devices in Reducing Downtime and Improving Efficiency Throughout a Machine’s Life Cycle

The Internet of Things (IoT) can impact every stage of a machine’s life. Using real world examples, this session will explore where and how to apply intelligent, connected devices throughout the life cycle of a machine.

Areas to be covered include:

Understanding which components are critical
  • Improving machine design with smart sensors
  • Maximizing component life by optimizing pneumatic circuits
  • Reducing downtime with condition monitoring
  • Repairing equipment faster using remote diagnostic tools

Discussions will also highlight how Industry 4.0 technologies benefit companies that would lose product batches and significant money if their processes went down; original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) looking for a competitive edge; and industries including packaging, automotive, factory automation, material handling, semiconductor, pharmaceutical, and medical.
