Intel, EXOR International, TIM and JMA Wireless have partnered with each other to exhibit the merits of Artificial Intelligence coupled with on-premise 5G private networks.
EXOR is an industrial PC and human machine interface manufacturer collaborating with local network service provider TIM to offer the 5G spectrum. This allows EXOR to maximize the advantages of Industry 4.0, offering the possibility to implement digitized technology.
As an example of the advantages of Industry 4.0 to the manufacturing industry, they collaborated to build a full-scale smart factory in Italy. Based on a range of Intel products for Industrial software. The smart factory exhibits what is achievable with the most advanced cloud, edge computing and networking technologies in a modular and agile application environment.
The smart factory was built from the ground up to leverage the most recent AI and 5G technologies from Intel and TIM. It will prove that digitalization can occur at any size and this is an essential factor for manufacturers operating at a small scale, because it can help them to stay afloat and relevant in a highly competitive. There are so many possibilities to be explored by utilizing Industry 4.0 solutions.
The smart factory also has an on-premise 5G laboratory to display how manufacturers can connect with existing solutions and build private networks to deliver business value. The laboratory will leverage 5G’s capacity to:
>enhance communication in a complex factory design setup.
>facilitate peer-to-peer communication via the use of industrial robots.
>explore edge computing cluster connectivity as opposed to wired connections.
At a compound annual growth rate of 12.2%, the international smart manufacturing market has been projected to be worth an estimated $506 billion by 2027. Manufacturers are devising new methods to leverage and maximize the capabilities of industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) technologies like 5G and artificial intelligence (AI) for reduction in energy and maintenance expenses as well as improvement of workers’ overall productivity. EXOR’s smart factory aims to show the operational advantages of digitalization which include:
>Automated scheduling of human resources, real-time response to changes in orders and human resource availability.
>Real-time update and monitoring of order processing status and progress, irrespective of order size
Manufacturers are enthusiastic about how the adoption of Industry 4.0 can be used to benefit their businesses, they are seeking to deepen their knowledge of how AI and 5G can accelerate their digital transformation initiatives. EXOR’s new smart factory is an ideal epitome of how leveraging solutions using open-architecture standards can drastically increase productivity and process efficiency, cut down maintenance costs, and take advantage of new business opportunities.
EXOR intends to make a portion of its smart factory floor and 5G laboratory available for other organizations to explore how they can transition to Industry 4.0 with 5G wireless communication.
EXOR also intends to release a visual quality inspection machine for automated real-time detection and flagging of defects. The system will also categorize these defects before transmitting the data to factory workers for thorough analysis.
