The smart factory uses the same data (or parts of it) throughout these four layers of information activity in the business. It links the production process right through to the business planning and provides both data and information to all layers. Industry 4.0 is about seamlessly collecting data from a range of sources, converting the data into actionable information and transferring it to the right place for action.


2.2 What role do hydraulic fluids play? Smart factory technologies are revolutionising the way we work but machines still need to be properly protected and maintained as the physical production processes remain crucial for Industry 4.0, which requires equipment to be working at its most efficient and be available when required. A key step in ensuring this happens is the selection of hydraulic fluids. Although it is possible to save small sums of money when purchasing the ‘lifeblood’ of your machines, it is false economy that could easily place smart factory performance at risk. Selecting on price rather than performance could result in reduced equipment protection and productivity; costly ramifications that outweigh the price of hydraulic fluids, which typically account for less than 1% of a plant’s overall spend. A relatively simple switch to high performance hydraulic fluids can have a big impact, helping to protect injection moulding machines and allow them to be part of Industry 4.0. Choosing advanced fluids can also can help to:


• Reduce start-up times • Cut energy consumption • Optimise cycle times


A high performance hydraulic fluid can additionally reduce system deposits, cutting machine maintenance and extending component life. Those formulated to provide thermal stability and resist oxidation can also extend fluid life, even under harsh operating conditions.


2.3 Sustainability The benefits of high performance fluids are not limited to enabling the smart factory and improving operations. The importance of environmental and energy management is growing rapidly and nobody can have failed to notice the increasing frequency of criticism of the plastics processing industry. As an industry we need to prove that we are doing the best we can to reduce our environmental impact at both the input (raw materials and energy) and output phases (product and process waste disposal). High performance hydraulic fluids that are maintained correctly will have a longer operating life, which reduces oil consumption and waste oil disposal. When the oil finally reaches the end- of-life phase and must be disposed of, then high performance oils can be formulated to have a reduced environmental impact. The use of high performance hydraulic fluids means we can reduce energy use to help meet ISO 50001 (Energy Management Systems) and reduce environmental impact to help meet ISO 14001 (Environmental Management Systems).
