Technologies Aiding The Manufacturing Industry

3D Printing

Within a few years, the technology has evolved so much that it is now possible to produce almost any component using metal, plastic, mixed materials and even human tissue. It has forced engineers and designers to think very differently when thinking about product development.

The Internet of Things (IoT)

An IoT device connects to the internet and is capable of generating and receiving signals. IoT enables connected devices to “talk” to each other, sending and receiving critical notifications. Once the device detects a failure, the IoT-connected device sends a notification to another device or a user. And helps in an effective and seamless operation.

Big Data and Predictive Maintenance Technology

These technologies include electronic devices that connect factories through the internet and web pages that double as dashboards for controlling the processes. Predictive maintenance technology helps predict snags and defects and thus cuts downtime and costs.
