Automotive manufacturing has to handle a large variety of data from the confirmation of assembly accuracy to numerical management the welding/coating facilities. It is one of the fields that can see great benefits from introducing of IoT.
IoT Application Examples by Industry
IoT on manufacturing sites has already achieved successful results in various situations.
This section introduces effective examples of IoT applications with emphasis on their advantages by industry and process.
The introduction of IoT enables efficient management of various data used in the metal processing industry such as the temperature, time, and processing accuracy for heat treatment.
In resin/plastic molding, many conditions including temperature, pressure and flow rate must be set to optimum values. For that purpose, it is essential to introduce optimized or autonomous production systems through IoT.
The food/medicine industries manufacture products that will be taken into the human body so especially strict quality control and traceability are required. The application of IoT technologies that allow centralized management of all data solves many problems at once.
In the process of casting or rolling, not only temperature but also the thickness, width and other product data needs to be managed. The introduction of IoT is a precondition for the management of this wide variety of data.
