What is Sensing/Electronics/IOT?
Sensing/Electronics/IoT form major components of modern metal forming and fabricating machinery and equipment. Controllable sensors and electronics monitor all manner of production and safety variables, providing actionable data to operators and management as to machine performance, part quality and production, and employee safety and productivity. Increasingly, IoT (Internet of Things, or Industry 4.0) has permeated these facilities, enabling real-time communication and control of equipment and processes.
What are Sensors?
Sensors, placed within production tooling or on machinery and tied to process control systems, monitor materials, parts and processes to help ensure proper part production.
