The Potential of Industry 4.0 in Motor Manufacturing

A variety of technologies go into making a factory Industry 4.0 compliant with optimizing manufacturing processes at the core of digital transformation. Electric motors are an important component of almost every product during manufacturing, so controlling equipment through the cloud means that processes can be monitored at all times and any potential failures can be detected in advance.

When Industry 4.0 technologies are used in combination with other equipment and sensors, they become a key factor in identifying patterns related to equipment productivity, efficiency, maintenance, and of course failure. A few of these benefits are listed below.

Keeps motors running at maximum efficiency.

  • Maintenance is performed when required.
  • Avoids costly repairs when equipment is down.
  • Reduced operating costs.

Challenges in the Electrical Machinery Industry

  • 01

    Workforce Reshaping

    Due to market competition, organizations should quickly respond to customer needs by shortening lead times and reducing operating costs. These goals can be achieved by improving the capabilities of the workforce. The training of employees and their expectations have changed drastically over the years and it is becoming more and more difficult to hire suitable employees, people with the right technical experience.

  • 02

    Safety in the Environment

    Electrical accidents are usually caused by unsafe equipment, unsafe environments, or unsafe work habits. Accidents can be prevented by performing maintenance in a timely manner. As with anything involving electricity, there are inherent dangers including fire, personal injury, and electric shock.

  • 03

    Progressive Change in Technology

    The electrical machinery industry requires smarter equipment to deal with all these problems. The market is seeking to reduce energy consumption, and improve control and automation, allowing pre-programmed functions for many micro-decisions that affect machinery and provide key control elements for industrial equipment. When an operator presses a button, the equipment will adapt and effectively respond based on smart control and monitoring sensors.

  • 04

    Human Errors are Costly

    The complexity of assembled electromechanical products is high and many factories still use manual processes to a large extent. They face many challenges in the assembly process, with low flexibility and high risk of errors. The electrical machinery industry needs to ensure that products after shipment have the greatest operational reliability, shorten downtimes, and continue to improve the safety and standard of operations.
