Exciting developments are afoot at Desoutter to take Smart Assembly to the next level. We can now reveal that the proven Nexonar positioning solution is being incorporated into the Desoutter ecosystem.
In the smart factory, data is your most valuable commodity. Used correctly, the information being produced by smart assembly tools can give invaluable insights into the performance of individual tools or entire production lines – often in real time. This opens up exciting new possibilities for improving efficiency. From predictive maintenance and condition monitoring to improving overall equipment effectiveness - boosting productivity and uptime.
As a new year begins, Desoutter is more determined than ever to help its customers accelerate their transformation to Industry 4.0. In the coming months, I’ll be revealing the latest tools we have developed to boost uptime, boost productivity and accelerate your transformation to digital ways of working.
Automotive design takes into consideration a series of critical aspects, from passenger safety, to build and material quality, to aesthetics. It also takes into account customer expectations around comfort, diagnostics and onboard entertainment – as well as societal pressures such as reducing environmental impacts and the availability of parking space in towns and cities. Hence the trend towards miniaturization, in order to pack more functionality into a smaller space, and the rise of the electric vehicle.
Accessibility is always going to be a challenge in aerospace assembly. From the tip of the tail to the last nut on the nascelle, every aeroplane is designed to be as space-saving, as light in weight and as aerodynamic as possible. This raises some interesting challenges for those who are tasked with making the aeroplane hold together while defying everything that gravity, passengers and the weather can throw at it!
Demands from increasingly discerning consumers mean that more equipment than ever is being packed into the same space. For instance, we expect air-conditioned comfort when we travel in trains, aeroplanes and cars: and if we do need to adjust our seating position or open a window, we prefer an electrically operated option. As a result, space within engine bays, under bulkheads and behind control panels is at a premium.
"Many people still associate the term Industry 4.0 with the idea of a deserted production facility," says André Pöppe, Product Manager at industrial tool specialist Desoutter in Maintal. But the opposite is the case. After all, by digitizing assembly, companies not only increased quality and productivity; they also showed themselves to be an attractive employer that provides its employees with innovative and ergonomic workplaces.
At Desoutter we are going through the same process as our customers in relation to Industry 4.0 implementation. Indeed, we consider that a crucial part of our product development program is to anticipate what our customers will need next.
CONNECT is a platform which manages all items, actions, and information related to your assembly line activities to accelerate your transformation by boosting your flexibility, boosting your uptime, and boosting your productivity.
Rapid advances in technology offer us new and exciting opportunities for storing and exchanging data. At Desoutter Brand & Digital Communications, we have been exploring the possibilities offered by developments such as the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), Augmented Reality, Marketing Automation and Account Based Marketing, Mobile Applications, Web personalization and the Cloud to see where they can be applied to deliver real, tangible benefits for our customers.
Technical advances also change the way humans produce things. The step into production technology, which was completely different from the past, is also called the industrial revolution. The new production technologies fundamentally changed the working conditions and lifestyles of people. What were the industrial revolutions and where do we find ourselves now? “From the First Industrial Revolution to Industry 4.0”
