element14 Community and Molex host webinar on Industry 4.0 manufacturing

element14.com, an Avnet Community, is hosting a free webinar sponsored by Molex focused on how Industry 4.0 and IIoT can change, scale and integrate manufacturing.  The webinar will cover the enabling of 4th generation manufacturing and provision of end-to-end and component-level solutions for machine builders and robot manufacturers.

Join this webinar to learn more about:

  • The move away from PLC-centric devices that limit the scope for machine-to-machine (M2M) communication and remote access.
  • The need for increased use of sensors at every step in the manufacturing process to drive the communication of raw data and provide feedback to the control systems.
  • How the next development phase will make more use of distributed control systems enabling each PLC within the network to coexist and communicate in real-time; with integrated security and safety, and distributed control systems, to improve efficiency and reduce response times.
  • The challenges of connected devices which are smarter than ever and more easily accessible – how to utilise them to optimise productivity, safety, and efficiency.

The webinar, titled How Will Industry 4.0 and IIoT Change Manufacturing?, will take place on Wednesday 17th February, 2021, 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm GMT, Location: On24
