We’ve talked a lot in this space about the way the current personnel shortage is upending process manufacturing. Control rooms are short on personnel and are more reliant than ever on automation technologies to help operators make fast, informed decisions no matter...
Sustainability, safety, and maintenance with smart pneumatics
Smart pneumatics is a game-changer for industries looking to improve sustainability, safety, and maintenance in their processes. This technology utilizes compressed air as its primary power source and is powered by sensors that can detect pressure, temperature, and other variables in real-time. By using smart pneumatics, companies can optimize performance, reduce energy usage, and save on costs.
Preparing for the Holistic Automation Future

Good Vibrations for Packaging Manufacturer Uptime
One major packaging and printing manufacturer found itself too often dealing with unforeseen and costly failures in its large packaging equipment. As its processes are tightly integrated, unexpected downtime in one area can bring a larger process to a standstill—costing production delays and efficiencies, not to mention the repairs themselves.
Digital Transformation in the Manufacturing Industry
In recent years, there has been a lot of talk about digital transformation within the manufacturing industry. Many companies have been hesitant to invest in this type of transformation due to perceived cost and disruption concerns. However, it is recommended to focus on one problem at a time and then worry about scaling up. Doing so will help maintain sustainability goals and optimize energy costs.
