5 Reasons Why Smart Factories Benefit from Wireless Connectivity

1. Reduced Operational Costs

Through wireless connectivity solutions, the complex process of producing products can be simplified to its most basic components. Wireless solutions enhance automation systems to be continuously as efficient as possible: generating little waste heat, using the minimum power, and focusing on the efficient use of all plant resources. Wireless solutions can also eliminate the need for work by electricians as the solutions work on low voltage. All this makes manufacturing more cost-efficient and productive.

2. Increased Labor Productivity

End-to-end factory automation can double, or even triple production compared to plants that use only a few automation systems. Manufacturing equipment that incorporates wireless connectivity can often be kept running for a longer period. Manufacturing and maintenance resources may also be positively impacted by eliminating route-based maintenance and other manual tasks. This lets companies outperform rivals.

3. High Machine Asset Availability

In a company with machines that have little availability and low production times, you will have less time and opportunities for high performance and quality. High availability is enabled by wireless connectivity and means less downtime and more throughput. When machines are running and being used, profitability increases.

4. Increased Reliability

When there is an increase in a plant's reliability, there will be an increase in production. An increase in production leads to an increase in company profit. By implementing wireless connectivity, a company can eliminate long and complex wiring home runs, pinched and cut cables, and the associated material and labor costs to replace them. The combination of these items helps plants become more reliable and reliable plants operate at lower costs.

5. Optimized Performance

Manufacturing optimization is the practice of using data to build better products, faster, intending to be more competitive. The implementation of wireless sensors and systems in the automation equipment allows the close control of manufacturing variables. The system brings the data to the right people, at the right time, and in the right place. When processes change state, the right action can be taken. This quick response helps maintain operations and performance.
