    The first time a 3D-printed metal part was used on a commercial aircraft was back in 2014. At that time, the Airbus company produced a titanium bracket on a 3D printer and installed it on an Airbus test aircraft. Thanks to that successful rapid prototype created by Airbus, the entire industry begun to evolve.

    Ensuring reliable product quality in sensitive industries like aerospace is crucial. For example, in metal-based 3D printing, the entire process must be monitored from end-to-end. Keeping track of the stock material, the melt pool, the changes in temperature, object’s dimensions, etc. is vital to ensure quality. In this article we will discuss how Lanner Intelligent Edge platforms are used in remote monitoring solutions for 3D printers.

    The purpose of intelligent tank monitoring systems is to keep track of the tank’s content level with metrics like temperature and pressure. These systems use a combination of state-of-the-art communication’s technology and intelligent edge analytics.

    A remote tank monitoring solution lets you keep track of the tank liquid’s level and temperature from anywhere in the world. Monitor single tanks, multiple distributed tanks, farms tanks, and anything storing from fuels to lubricants, water, chemicals, and fertilizers.

    In many cases, WiFi is still the preferred method for wireless LAN deployments, and it will still be for home networks.

    But when it comes to enterprise-grade networks, such as the manufacturing plant, which has a vast number of locations, connected field workers, Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) devices, and applications, WiFi has many limitations.

    The lack of speed, coverage, security, and performance from WiFi networks deployed at large enterprises has opened the doors for the CBRS band and the Private LTE infrastructure.

    In this article, we will highlight six main reasons why CBRS is the right ingredient for Smart Manufacturing.

    Implementation AI-based industrial automation at the edge is crucial in mission-critical applications that require real-time data processing and low-latency response. For example, the AI-powered machine vision system at the factory edge network can process the vision data analytics, deep Learning Inference and relearning, resulting in immediately improving the flaw detection accuracy, without streaming large volumes of data to the cloud that leads to higher overheads in network bandwidth and power consumption.

    Machine vision uses cameras, computers and software algorithms for carrying out inspection tasks that require precise and repetitive verification and testing in high speed. Accomplishing such tasks with human vision is extremely difficult, if not impossible, because while human eyes are capable of making precise measures in details, they aren’t equipped to do so in a rapid and repetitive manner; human vision, by comparison, is error-prone and could deteriorate irreversibly when made to perform such visually intensive tasks.

    Replacing human vision with machine vision for verification and testing tasks is a part of industrial automation, intended for achieving faster TTM and optimizing resources while at the same time lowering cost of ownership and improving risk management.

    As more and more automation takes place at factory floors, gone are the days when operators are expected to have all the information at their fingertips, rendering complex setup of displays and control panels obsolete.

    While software-based thin client computing has now become ubiquitous in production automation, so too have the hardware appliances that can be customized and tailored for all industrial automation applications found at processing plants and manufacturing factories. Together with the availability of a variety of thin client management software, hardware appliances have evolved and changed in terms of their flexibility and capability.

    The manufacturing sector is facing challenges by increasing measures on traceability and regulation compliances. Manufacturers are demanded for complete visibility of their supply train, including the origins, make, and origins of the goods they receive from the suppliers. On the other hand, today’s consumer-driven market escalades the demands for high precision and efficiencies in the production phases. Therefore, automated logistic systems combined with machine visions and robotic arms are more precise and faster for repetitive routines, such as container-fill level, seals, label check, unit counting and barcodes, than traditional manual packaging and sorting.

    OT and IT networks operate in different environments, serve different purposes, and have different objectives and risks. IT systems primarily involves storage, retrieval, and transmission of digital information, thus will prioritize protecting data and confidentiality. An OT system will prioritize the safety and availability of equipment and processes.

    As digital systems continue to connect to industrial systems, IT and OT network are also becoming more interconnected, creating improved production growth and new opportunities, however, this convergence also exposes OT networks to an advanced cyber-threat landscape.

    A comprehensive cybersecurity strategy must consider the entire security lifecycle, and require significant improvements in OT/ICS cyber security to defend against cyber-attacks and threats.
