Cannon Automata has created solution for industrial automation, products and services able to integrate machines and plants according with Industry 4.0 concepts. The first embryonal smart system was the Photo Voltaic Plant Monitoring, implemented since many years on the roofs of some Italian Cannon facilities.
It’s a flexible application based on sensors measuring solar radiation, working along with inter-correlated information; an automatic solution that allows to verify the performance of photovoltaic plants. The system monitors in real-time the energy production, comparing it with a historical database of solar illumination data. It is capable to predict and prevent malfunctions, giving the possibility to check parameters, events and alarms directly on smartphones.
Since then Automata has produced many Smart Factory solutions linked to I4.0 concept that allow Machine-to-Machine talking (M2M), reading information from the memory of the machine or plant CPUs, integrating them with data collected from the surrounding environment and means for Internet of Things (IoT) communication. Factory information could be stored in the Cloud and could be retrieved everywhere or from any personal device in order to have real-time data, production data, maintenance status, and alarms on-the-go.
WHAT IS INDUSTRY 4.0?
The Industry 4.0 is a structured system, that uses cybernetic solution and digital communication in industrial products and services. Commonly associated with the concept of Smart Factory, it’s a transversal process, irrespective of business area, that makes industrial production entirely automated and interconnected...
MACHINE CONTROL & PRODUCTION
The production data has become in the Digital Industry, elements of strategic competitiveness,
that constitute the basis of industry 4.0.
REMOTE MONITORING & ASSISTANCE
The ability to control and change the status of the system or the entire plant with no geographical restrict.
Maintaining a high level of reliability and high production capacity, are considered primary strategic asset for the achievement of business success and the improve of the value and competitiveness of companies throughout the countries.
MOTION & ROBOTICS
Flexible robotic solutions according to high production requirements of the entire supply chain.
Energy efficiency and Industry 4.0 become a perfect combination to increase competitiveness and to address in the best way the challenges of the future in a borderless market.
I4.0 means also a sustainable industry able to respect and protect the planet's resources.
