Smart Manufacturing focuses on a technology-driven approach to improve manufacturing operations and efficiencies. Available to suit a variety of manufacturing environments, LoRaWAN® sensors can be simply integrated into any Industry 4.0 application.
Solutions we provide:
LoRaWAN® Smart Manufacturing IoT Solutions
Digital technologies have transformed the way we live and with Industry 4.0, the digitisation of the manufacturing sector has never been more accessible. LoRaWAN® offers a reliable long range, low power option which can be easily set up to create your Smart Manufacturing Solution.
Requirements will undoubtedly differ between each Smart Manufacturing facility. Our Industry 4.0 solutions are future-proof with the ability to expand as/when required and can be designed to:
- Track building systems and key assets
- Maximise operational efficiency
- Maintain Corporate Social Responsibility
- Identify new areas for savings
- Optimise working conditions
- Monitor the performance of key machinery
- Lower carbon emissions
Developing your Solution
A Smart Manufacturing IoT solution will typically consist of a gateway, sensors and a software platform. The gateway will receive information from the sensors which could be measuring anything from water, vibration, temperature, air quality etc. The gateway will then feed the data recorded by the sensors to a server which will then push the information to a software platform/dashboard to be presented in a user friendly way – Alliot provides the components and the expertise to develop your solution.
The Internet of Things and Smart Manufacturing go hand-in-hand. Whatever you’re looking to implement/monitor for your manufacturing processes, we have the skills and expertise to help you develop your Industry 4.0 Solution. With access to the very best components, we can help you turn your ideas into fully scalable commercial deployments.
Working Safely During the COVID-19 Outbreak
Social distancing can be difficult in some smart manufacturing environments. We sell products to assess individual body temperature and track and trace proximity sensors to help reduce the transmission of infectious diseases like COVID-19.
Vibration Monitoring for Machinery
Machinery often plays a vital role in many manufacturing environments. Using LoRaWAN® sensors to monitor information such as vibration or temperature can help you to detect potential problems and overall machinery efficiency.
We offer a vibration monitoring proof of concept kit which allows you to test your industrial IoT idea. These kits are designed for you to “plug and play”, with sensors and gateways pre-configured for your convenience. It’s a great way to introduce IoT in manufacturing to your business.
LoRaWAN® Asset Trackers are useful to monitor the location of numerous assets within Smart Manufacturing environments. Whether you’d like to monitor vehicles, people or outgoing shipments, our tracking sensors use WiFi sniffing and GPS to remotely monitor the location of your assets.
Industry 4.0 Environmental Monitoring
Many commercial manufacturers address the reduction of carbon emissions in their SCR policies. Environmental LoRaWAN sensors enable aspects such as temperature, light, water and air quality to be remotely monitored. The data recorded in Smart Manufacturing environments can then be analysed and monitored to assess the overall environmental impact.
Implementing LoRaWAN® alerting devices such as sirens can help to add an additional element to Smart Manufacturing solutions. Integrating a siren with a vibration sensor for example can automatically alert people to potential issues with machinery before problems arise.
LoRaWAN® smoke and CO detectors can also be useful in Industry 4.0 to work alongside existing systems. The detectors maintain regular readings, enabling users to monitor and identify potential reasons as to why an alarm may be raised.
Smart Waste Management
LoRaWAN® Smart Waste Sensors are available for both solid and fluid waste. These sensors are simple to fit to existing bins and help to optimise waste collection in Smart Manufacturing.
Similar to environmental monitoring, LoRaWAN® energy sensors can help to reduce carbon footprints in Industry 4.0 environments. By monitoring the energy consumption of machinery for example you can also identify areas for money saving and the overall efficiencies of equipment in use.
Using LoRaWAN® Thermocouple sensors, can help Smart Manufacturing facilities to comply with Legionella regulations. By gathering automatic water temperature readings you can minimise the risk of any errors which may occur with manual processes.
All products are available throughout the UK and Europe. For more information on how we can help your organisation develop a Smart Manufacturing Solution, speak to a member of our team today.
