A confluence of technology advances has led to a surge in industrial automation solutions. Manufacturers can now take advantage of Industry 4.0 models and leverage advanced data analytics, artificial intelligence, machine learning and Industrial IoT technologies to enhance manufacturing processes and automate a wide range of operations.
One of the fastest-growing industry sectors, industrial automation is reshaping the ways that manufacturers operate and produce goods. Spurred by new technologies that add intelligence and agility to processes, enterprising businesses are creating connectivity between smaller components, sensor networks, machines and robotic-controlled assembly lines, ushering in an era of smart manufacturing.
Avnet Embedded Solutions provides the embedded computing technologies and systems to help you develop control and manufacturing equipment. For example, to improve the efficiency and quality of electronics manufacturing, we helped develop a server that collects data to intelligently refine the processes on the manufacturing line, delivering atomic-level precision. Opportunities to control and improve industrial processes exist in a wide range of areas, such as power station controls, pump controls, weld monitors, intelligent systems for the flexible factory, tablet applications for tracking processes on the factory floor, data-driven safety systems and more.
