Retrofitting Machines With IoT
Manufacturing equipment costs a lot of money. These machines are typically designed to last twenty or more years. However, older equipment cannot support new technologies. Many manufacturers would like to find a way to utilize new technology without having to replace costly equipment.
It can be a challenge to integrate older machines with the IoT. These machines were designed to meet a variety of business needs. Unfortunately, they were not designed to handle the transmission of large amounts of data.
IoT integration is crucial to success in the manufacturing industry. Many manufacturers are already connected to the Internet. Companies that do not connect will quickly find themselves behind their competition. Unfortunately, machine replacement could cost millions. Most manufacturing companies simply cannot afford this option.
Another option that is often discussed, but rarely implemented, involves retrofitting machines with IoT. Retrofitting is the process of adding new technology and capabilities to older machines and equipment. This solution completely eliminates the need to purchase and implement new machines.
Reliable, Cost-Effective Solution
Retrofitting older machines with IoT capabilities can create a number of problems if not done correctly. A complicated and unreliable system can cause production to come to a halt. This type of situation can be disastrous for a manufacturer’s bottom line. The longer it takes to complete the production process, the more money it costs the manufacturing company.
A properly integrated IoT solution can help reduce or completely eliminate downtime. A poorly integrated system could end up costing the company a considerable amount of money.
