BRIEF | THOSE TERMS EXPLAINED


IoT: The Internet of things is a system of interrelated computing devices, mechanical and digital machines which has unique identifiers and the ability to transfer data over a network without requiring human interaction. It has evolved from the convergence of multiple technologies, real-time analytics, machine learning, commodity sensors, and embedded systems, all of which is revolutionising the way inormation is transfered, but at the same time, giving rise to concerns about privacy and security. Predictive maintenance: Techniques designed to help determine the condition of in-service equipment which can estimate when maintenance should take place. Cost-effective because, rather than sheduled tasks, they are performed only when warranted. Big Data: A phrase used to describe a massive volume of both structured and unstructured data too big to process using traditional database and software techniques. The advantage for companies is that is has the potential to improve operations and make faster, smarter decisions.


Another prominent POWTECH exhibitor, Hosokawa Alpine, also offers a remote service, which can be used to analyse process settings and plant operation, and minimise or prevent potential breakdowns. On an optional basis, the company offers support with process optimisation. This gives service specialists the opportunity to access all relevant measurement data online, incorporating a data logger in the machine controller. This enables process data from the plant to be continuously saved and transferred to Hosokawa’s remote service. In this way the plant operator alone is able to determine who has access to the data.


DIGITAL COMES OF AGE Entirely in line with the challenge represented by Industry 4.0, these service deployments take place quickly and at short notice; they are individually coordinated with the requirements of the operator and the plant; and they go easy on resources, since there is no need for time- consuming travel by a service specialist.

“The tools involved are not new, but they need to be viewed differently. New relationship between suppliers and users - “Digital twins” and “cloud solutions” - are not the central elements in this digital transformation”
