Developing smart machines and equipment to meet manufacturers’ demands

Visitors to the Rockwell Automation stand at AUSPACK 2017 will experience first-hand how The Connected Enterprise drives new opportunities to optimise production and supply chain

 More than 70 million people are joining the middle class every year, increasing demand on manufacturing resources and infrastructure. Meeting this demand means being more productive, sustainable and flexible.

Fortunately, the convergence of new technologies including mobile devices, the cloud, and big data, can help securely connect plant information with enterprise systems.

“With the right network infrastructure and the ability to integrate information across IT and control systems, industrial enterprises can coordinate operations and communications – facilitating a demand-driven supply chain,” explained Bob Hicks, OEM Segment manager at Rockwell Automation.developing-smart-pic

By bridging the gap between systems, Rockwell Automation is helping connect industrial enterprises to improve operations. Smart Manufacturing, enabled by The Connected Enterprise, is driving new opportunities for end-users to optimize their production and supply chain.

According to Matthew Treeby, commercial marketing manager at Rockwell Automation, “Our AUSPACK exhibit will feature machinery in action and never before seen technology. Visitors will have the opportunity to download the new Rockwell Automation FactoryTalk TeamONE app, redefining smartphone use on the plant floor to make individual workers more productive and ultimately connect all pillars of The Connected Enterprise vision.”

Attendees will see how TeamONE delivers a completely new user experience and helps industrial teams improve productivity. Rockwell Automation will demonstrate how they are helping customers optimize their operations today. This interactive demo will highlight how data from smart, connected industrial assets can be transformed into meaningful insights to drive positive business outcomes.

To improve communications between equipment builders and manufacturers and boost performance, Rockwell Automation recently launched a new FactoryTalk Analytics for Machines cloud application. This application will be demonstrated at AUSPACK where visitors will have the opportunity to see first-hand how it provides equipment builders access to performance analytics from deployed systems in order to gain valuable insight to support their customers.

Before now, there was no standard approach for equipment builders who needed to collaborate with their manufacturing customers. With Rockwell Automation providing the capability for trusted access to information, equipment builders can offer customised services, including proactive maintenance and training.

As companies drive for new levels of productivity, they require safety solutions that assist not hinder productivity. Rockwell Automation is designated as the largest safety automation provider in the world. At AUSPACK the company will showcase the latest developments including best-in-class integrated safety. Experts will be on hand to share knowledge and help you develop safer solutions that support your productivity targets.

“AUSPACK will bring together leading machine and equipment builders many of which use our solutions in their products. See first-hand how we can help you develop the smart machines and equipment that your manufacturing and industrial customers need,” said Treeby.
