What is Sensing/Electronics/IOT?
Sensing/Electronics/IoT form major components of modern metal forming and fabricating machinery and equipment. Controllable sensors and electronics monitor all manner of production and safety variables, providing actionable data to operators and management as to machine performance, part quality and production, and employee safety and productivity. Increasingly, IoT (Internet of Things, or Industry 4.0) has permeated these facilities, enabling real-time communication and control of equipment and processes.
What are Controls?
Controls monitor processes to ensure proper setup and operation of equipment and production of parts.
