Automation – Industry 4.0 

The industrial adoption of automation is driven by robotics, controls, instrumentation, and data management.  As these fields merge, it becomes the expanded and enhanced field referred to as Industry 4.0, where robotics and automation, enabled with sensors and control algorithms, lead to Cyber Physical Systems.

 

Robotics

Cygnet Texkimp bases most of its robotics on a standard 6-axis unit for packaging, lifting, and handling.  For movement and placement, we rely on self-guided robotic vehicles.

 

Controls

For our automation and handling systems, we work with a hybrid combination of:

 

Instrumentation & Sensing

The instrumentation used is varied in both manufacturer and format, but selected to give reliability of service and achieve the tasks required which include:

 

Data management

For our automation and handling systems, we work with a hybrid combination of:

 

A move to management of larger data sets,  inclusive of data from the line, inventory of feed and inventory product, results in a rapidly expanding need for state of the art Information Technology.   Staying abreast of this curve is of strategic advantage for Cygnet Texkimp and its clients.

Within the automated, Industry 4.0 factory, coordination of these four fields becomes a task that Cygnet Texkimp is prepared to help our clients enable and manage.
