In the beginning there was the idea of a completely networked factory. 4.0. The fourth industrial revolution has been in progress for several years now and is still going strong. But new aspects are being added almost every day: artificial intelligence, deep learning, and digital twins – these are just some of the buzzwords that are currently fueling the topic and which find their counterpart in smart sensors. With these, we are driving the changes and constantly exceeding old boundaries.
Industry 4.0 taken to the next level. Smart sensors, machines and processes
Change is everywhere. While we used to think that it is was mainly about intelligent networked production, we have already gone beyond that. Fusing the operative manufacturing level with the IT level brings new digital challenges. We are therefore taking the following decisive step for our customers: Besides continuously strengthening our expertise in the technical area, we will collaboratively develop complete solutions with you that continuously push out the limits of the technically achievable. In this way we will also accompany you through the next stage of the revolution and make everything smarter.
Industry 4.0 with sensor intelligence from SICK
The fourth industrial revolution in focus
The data-based, networked, and autonomous value creation chain in production and logistics is the culmination of recent technological innovation.
Networking and digitization in production
The nature of communication is changing. In transparent production processes, machines communicate both with one another as well as directly over the Ethernet or in the cloud via intelligent sensors. This allows the Smart Factory to become a reality.
Sensor intelligence in the Smart Factory
A Smart Factory is a prerequisite for Industry 4.0. Every sensor, every machine, and every human involved can communicate with and among one another at any time. This enables the development of completely new applications.
Data sovereignty and data security
Production data is a valuable asset for every company. Providing protection against data manipulation and defining how further processing is controlled are strategies which are part of the system solutions from SICK at the beginning of the networked value creation chain.
