Manufacturers in San Antonio to adopt IoT for creating smart factories

Global Smart Building Market

The local manufacturers in San Antonio, Texas are adopting IoT technology to create smart factories. Manufacturers are being enrolled to learn Manufacturing 4.0, a concept that uses IoT and Big data to improve overall productivity.

United States: Local manufacturers in San Antonio, Texas are adopting Internet of Things (IoT) technology that can create smart factories. Approximately 100 people are expected to get a crash course in a Manufacturing 4.0, a concept that uses the internet of things and big data to improve productivity.

The Product Marketing Manager for Desoutter Industrial Tools explained that Manufacturing 1.0 is mechanization with the help of steam and water, while Manufacturing 2.0 started in the 1800s with mass production and mechanized assembly lines. Manufacturing 3.0 created in the beginning of the Mid-20th Century and included the use of computers, robots and automation. Manufacturing 4.0 is a in line with people and computers working together.

The term Manufacturing 4.0 was introduced at the Hannover Messe trade show in Germany and since then, smart tools have been widely adopted in the United States across all sectors in manufacturing.

Desoutter has emerged as one of the leading makers of Manufacturing 4.0 technology, which has designed smart tools to transmit data to a central hub where the generated data can be analyzed to improve efficiency and anticipate maintenance issues.

The technology has allowed humans to communicate with machines easily. The experience can be improved using virtual reality tools and real-time tracking of components on the plant floor. There are however many barriers in the adoption as the technology is a bit costly, and there is a growing fear of change.

Many robot-assisted companies like Amazon in Schertz are already using order technology to track a product's movement across the floor. Toyota Motor Manufacturing Texas Inc. in south San Antonio uses automated guided vehicles, or AGVs, to supply parts and components to work stations.

According to TechSci Research, the decision by local manufacturers to adopt IoT in manufacturing is a great initiative which will allow them to improve productivity and anticipate maintenance issues. Internet of Things (IoT) is a continuous connected network system of embedded devices which allow communication without any human intervention. The services used to support essential features and components of IoT network are known as IoT services. The Global IoT services market is expected to witness robust growth due to the growing technological advancements and increasing initiatives for automating processes. The rapidly growing volume of data generating the need for data analytics is expected to propel the growth of the global IoT services market in the coming years. The decision is also likely to affect the IoT in Manufacturing Market in the United States as well as act as a guiding force for the Smart Buildings Market in the coming years
