"Smart Factories”: The Future of Plastics Production with 4.0 Connectivity & Condition Monitoring System (CMS)

May 31

"Smart Factories” are now a real possibility. Many innovations have been realized over the years, but perhaps none as interesting and valuable as Industry 4.0 and Condition Monitoring Systems (CMS). The ability to achieve complete connectivity along with the need to stay in touch have driven innovation to a point that now allows nearly all equipment to speak to each other. The capability to have full internal communication of equipment coupled to the Injection Molding Machine with nearly instant access to streaming data through the internet may have truly created the next generation of “Smart Factories”. Primary Topics: • Integration of all injection molding components using 4.0 connectivity. • Condition Monitoring Systems (CMS) and how they will affect the future of plastics production.
