Reaping the rewards with Industry 4.0

Desoutter, a leading specialist in industrial assembly solutions, has published a new report that contains detailed insights into the digitalisation of manufacturing and the future benefits of adopting full Industry 4.0 automation.

Titled ‘Desoutter 4.0, Accelerate Your Transformation’, the report’s publication coincides with the company’s centenary year and clearly demonstrates Desoutter’s appetite to continue as an innovative thought leader in its chosen field.

Available as an eBook and using a combination of the written word and infographics, Desoutter 4.0, Accelerate Your Transformation opens with an overview of progress towards the adoption of Industry 4.0 globally, followed by a discussion of how different leading manufacturing nations, such as the US, Germany and China, are responding to the challenges. This is followed by an analysis of the automotive and aerospace sectors and how they are adopting digitalisation to achieve better flexibility and efficiency.

The document also contains a helpful summary of the benefits that Industry 4.0 can deliver in terms of productivity, quality, data management, maintenance and improved flexibility. Interviews with Desoutter customers complete the picture as practical examples of how digitalisation is already delivering positive change, as well as providing some personal perspectives on the challenges involved in progressing towards full Industry 4.0 adoption.

Speaking at the global launch of the report, Ivo Maltir, Desoutter vice-president, explained: “Digitalisation is becoming increasingly common as manufacturers of components and systems develop ways to make their products more intelligent. The benefits in terms of increased efficiency and responsiveness in a production environment are already clear: but the full benefits of the fourth industrial revolution – Industry 4.0 – will not be delivered until a global set of standards is developed which will ensure that every component, machine or system – whoever the manufacturer happens to be – can communicate using a common language.

“We felt it was important for our customers and our partners to benchmark just how far digitalization has been embraced, and to map out how Desoutter 4.0 solutions can help to boost flexibility, productivity and up-time in industrial assembly applications.”
