Industry 4.0 represents the future of manufacturing and engineering.
It offers endless advantages for automation and production facilities, using advanced technology to achieve remote monitoring, live data streaming, predictive maintenance and QR coding. Implementing Industry 4.0 technologies and applications will help you streamline your process and become more efficient, productive and sustainable.
Whatever you do, if you want to do it better, we can help.
The future of manufacturing
Industry 4.0 is being hailed as the 4th Industrial Revolution. It’s being implemented across the manufacturing industry, advancing the way systems are run and streamlining maintenance processes. At Banelec, we’ve built our reputation on creating bespoke and innovative solutions that enable our clients to achieve improvement through technology.
Industry 4.0 applications enable us to develop your systems so you can monitor your equipment use, gain data-driven insight, implement predictive maintenance and allow your on-site engineers instant access to manuals and drawings, saving valuable production time. If you’re looking to make your manufacturing processes smarter, safer and more sustainable, Banelec can help.
One of the main advantages of Industry 4.0 applications is the switch from traditional ‘fail and fix’ maintenance to a more proactive ‘predict and prevent’ approach. By knowing and programming the expected usage for each part of your process, we can monitor the life of each component within your system so it can be replaced before reaching its expected maximum uses. This can help you achieve a near-zero breakdown in production. No lapses in production brings an obvious financial benefit. It also offers significant health and safety benefits. As you are monitoring your complete system, any potentially hazardous machinery failures would be identified, helping to prevent accidents, injuries and downtime.
Remote Monitoring & Live Data Streaming
Although remote monitoring has been around for a while, the technology has evolved rapidly in recent years. Banelec has stayed at the forefront of these advancements, developing wifi and 4G data streaming solutions via the web, with 5G coming soon. These give instant access to all your real-time machinery performance data, providing insight on a host of KPIs, including process times for high output systems, system functionality and factory activity. You can access this data 24/7 from anywhere in the world, safe in the knowledge that you’ll be alerted to any issues instantly via email or text message. You can even operate non-essential equipment remotely from wherever you are using this technology.
QR Codes offer easy access
Large projects or complex processes or machinery generally come with vast amounts of information and documentation. Unfortunately, this is rarely available to engineers on-site when they need it most – such as in a breakdown or maintenance situation.
QR coding means they can instantly access the documentation or information they need to resolve any issues and get your operations back up and running. We can place QR codes on your equipment during the production stage, providing your engineers with convenient access to the drawings, datasheets and other essential documents via any smart device with a QR scanner app.
