Editor’s Note: This is a guest blog from our friends at Manufacturing Talk Radio. In this post they cover the impact of Big Data and the Industrial Internet of Things on the Oil Industry, while covering the importance of protecting computers used on oil rigs.
You need to protect computers, printers, touchscreen applications or LCD screens in an industrial environment. Researching industrial computer enclosures has left you spoilt for choice.
Data collection and industrial computing are helping warehouse operations to realise their vision of logging, tracking and tracing everything as they pursue improved productivity. How are these key components shaping warehouse floors of the future? More importantly, how can they be maintained?
Frankly, the education system, parents and the manufacturing industry itself have played their part in dissuading today’s youth from pursuing a career in manufacturing. Can the age of digital manufacturing revive youth interest in manufacturing as a career?
With more and more industrial facilities depending on computer-controlled systems, protecting those capital assets has become a big deal. Operations managers and industrial buyers are under pressure to identify solutions that can defend computers against the rigors of industrial use.
As a manufacturer of industrial computer enclosures used across Europe, June’s ‘Brexit’ vote will certainly raise challenges for Armagard and the wider manufacturing industry.
Computers have become a key asset in food production processes. However, they represent a contamination risk in terms of gathering dust and food residue.
For generations, the plight of manufacturers has been to improve manufacturing productivity. Why? Because manufacturing ‘lives or dies’ based on its ability to make concepts a reality as quickly as possible, at low-cost and without compromising on quality. In an age of computer-based manufacturing, what does improving productivity look like?
The web is littered with news stories ‘attacking’ the state of the US manufacturing industry, while the positives rarely receive coverage.
