Final control is where controlling a manufacturing or production process happens. It’s the valves in the line or vessel inlets and outlets that keep the process operating in its intended range. Often we think of large industrial valves, but even in in-vitro analytical and medical equipment, these valves must be reliable and precise. In a […]

Many posts here have explored Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) technologies used in process manufacturing to improve safety, reliability, efficiency & emissions, and production. But what about discrete manufacturing applications such as packaging and assembly lines? In a IoT World Today article, Industrial Internet of Things and the Rise of Smart Pneumatics, Emerson’s Mark Densley […]

In hybrid and discrete manufacturing processes, pneumatics control the dynamic movements on the machines used in the process. Internet of Things (IoT) devices can help these machines operate more safely, reliably and efficiently. In a MachineDesign article, IoT for Pneumatic Systems, Emerson’s Enrico De Carolis describes how these devices, such as a pneumatic valve manifold, […]
