On the Road to Smart Manufacturing: IoT/IIoT and Security, an Inseparable Pair

The arrival of the IoT on the market was a watershed moment in terms of how we relate to technology. It revolutionized everything, from smart homes to connected cars, to systems for smart cities, 5G innovations and, of course, industrial advancements made with the industrial internet of things (IIoT).

Predictive maintenance in the metal industry

Thanks to artificial intelligence, automatic learning (Machine Learning), Big Data and the Internet of Things (IoT) we’re able to carry out plant maintenance in a more intelligent way, using the available resources more efficiently, as well as anticipating possible failures using predictive techniques (predictive maintenance) with the consequent savings in time and costs. Predictive maintenance is a developing field that makes it possible to analyze machine and/or process parameters, detecting abnormal behavior in advance that, if not repaired, could go on to cause an unexpected failure, allowing us to resolve problems before they even occur.

The integration of systems as a strategy for business optimization

When a company decides to go ahead with the digitization of its processes, it tends to be aiming for greater visibility, traceability and optimization, which generally implies improvements in efficiency and decision-making.
