The factory of the future: very small joints in Industry 4.0
The fourth industrial revolution is making gigantic strides forward throughout the world and the factory of the future is assuming an increasingly concrete shape: smart connected machines coordinate production processes independently, robots cooperate intelligently with human workers in assembly, smart worker guidance shows workers the right tightening and production process and the data produced are transferred to a platform allowing the slightest defect to be detected immediately, with reactions on a real-time basis. No company can ignore Industry 4.0 now and all companies need to be well prepared. Industry 4.0 will change all the previous business models and a holistic solution therefore needs to be found for the entire production process. Atlas Copco Tools offers such a holistic solution that especially focuses on low torque tightening technique.
