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, […]

According to the Solenoid valve page on Wikipedia at the time this post was written, the invention of these devices dates back to 1910 by ASCO, now part of Emerson. Solenoid valves are electromechanical devices: …in which the solenoid uses an electric current to generate a magnetic field and thereby operate a mechanism which regulates […]

Author: Enrico De Carolis, Vice President of Global Technology, Fluid & Motion Control at Emerson It’s a startling fact: a typical packaging line’s overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) is about 45-55 percent, meaning that only about half of its planned production time is truly productive. And packaging lines with lower OEE experience increased stops, excess scrappage […]
