Advanced Process Control and Optimization to Boost the LNG Industry Tim Shea Mon, 12/10/2018 - 16:29
For more than a decade, advanced process control (APC) technology has been playing a significant role in the global liquified natural gas (LNG) value chain. While the LNG market is expected to grow in 2018 due to continued environmental concerns, increased use of LNG in the industrial and transport sectors, especially in Asia, LNG liquification plants in particular face several critical constraints affecting profitability. The production process in LNG plants is sensitive to a wide range of disturbances, including both changes in ambient temperatures and feedstock composition. APC technology can help compensate for these variables to enable processes to be operated closer to constraints without compromising safety. This improves profitability without negatively impacting a plant’s “license to operate.”
GPS Tracking Technology for Better Asset Management Inderpreet Shoker Mon, 12/10/2018 - 15:12
A number of improvements and innovations are driving the adoption of the Industrial IoT (IIoT), helping create a solid value proposition for end users. Various industries are now adopting advanced IIoT technologies to bring improvement in range of different areas. One such area is asset tracking. GPS tracking technologies have been around for a long time and now with all the innovations in the areas of sensors, networking, and connectivity, the technology is well-suited as well as cost-effective to track assets and vehicles in real-time for commercial and industrial applications.
IoT World Solutions Congress - Worth Your While Constanze Schmitz Mon, 12/10/2018 - 08:46
ARC Advisory Group attended the IOT Solutions World Conference (IoTSWC) on the grounds of the FIRA Barcelona last October and we were very impressed. The venue is modern and in contrast to automation fairs, there was an atmosphere of quiet and calm, that favored concentration and quality conversations. With over 300 companies and record attendance of over 16000 visitors this may seem counterintuitive, but that was our impression. The growth of both exhibitors by more than 40 percent and visitor numbers by 25 percent is impressive. Even though this was just the fourth edition of the event, the size was one of a grown-up world-scale fair.
Industrial Cybersecurity: Status Quo and Trends 2018 Constanze Schmitz Mon, 12/10/2018 - 08:35
To navigate today’s tidal wave of digital transformation and to make disruptive technologies work, manufacturers, municipalities, utilities, and all other organizations need to roll out the right mix of technologies at just the right time. This means driving and managing change in processes, people, ecosystems, and technologies while keeping safety and cybersecurity at the forefront.
CC-Link Embraces the Future of Industrial Networking Constanze Schmitz Thu, 12/06/2018 - 08:16
With the completion of the CC-Link IE TSN specification, the CC-Link Partner Association (CLPA) is setting the stage for a new development wave of industrial devices running on CC-Link IE that can now take advantage of Time Sensitive Networking (TSN) technology. TSN is a set of additional standards related to standard IEEE Ethernet. Initially developed for the automotive industry, TSN quickly became popular with industrial network consortia because of its ability to support determinism.
Standardization of Coordinate Measuring Machines Supports Smart Factory Infrastructure Tim Shea Wed, 12/05/2018 - 14:47
The move toward Industry 4.0 drives a new trend in smart factory infrastructure. Manufacturers are transiting to smart connected factories and extending Industrial IoT ecosystems across factories, plants, and supply chains. Efficient and flexible data analysis are critical for production systems and plant assets. As the trend of Industry 4.0 accelerates, metrology and quality control need to keep up with the latest digital trend. Coordinate measuring machines are critical machines in manufacturing process, which captures geometric measurements or surface conditions of a workpiece. Continued technology advancements now enable coordinate measuring machines to be integrated into the shop floor and interoperate with other inspection technologies throughout the manufacturing process.
