Industrial production lines are undergoing transformation to adapt to the competitive market. As factories of the future become real, inter-connected devices autonomously enable the flow of data, allowing automated analysis. Automation requires machines that are highly technologically advanced to derive reliable results.
With manufacturing shop floors transforming into smarter and connected environments, measurement systems will also witness a shift. Operational activities in the value chain will be positioned closer to avoid bottleneck and delayed supply of product to market. Metrology systems will be moved to improve the status quo of finished products and provide a more flexible production environment. In this way, each part’s status can be monitored from the raw material stage until the packaging stage in real-time.
