IoT Experience for Metalformers and Fabricators
Learn how colleagues are implementing IoT through case studies
The coming wave of digital manufacturing and plant-floor connectivity is here for metalformers and fabricators. MetalForming magazine, published by the Precision Metalforming Association (PMA), understands that the technology manufacturers use changes rapidly, especially within the Industrial Internet of Things. Because of these advances in technology, MetalForming magazine has created the Internet of Things Experience to educate manufacturers on how this technology can be leveraged to optimize your operations and plant-floor procedures.
With multiple case studies during the event, attendees will be given a roadmap for planning and executing an IoT plan. For example, the case study presented by Jim Finnerty, product manager, Wintriss Controls Group LLC, shows how metalformers utilize real-time gathering of production data to enable quick and decisive actions to generate a boost in overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) in the pressroom. It’s a terrific example of Industry 4.0 connectivity impacting the metalforming industry.
