Presenters: Dr. James Wiczer & Brian Reinke

Presentation Topic: Exploit Industrial Internet of Things for Increased Production & Lower Costs

Using new Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) technologies, the metalcasting industry is beginning to experience very significant productivity and efficiency benefits. New and inexpensive smart sensors, combined with low-cost, world-wide connectivity, now allow the collection of massive amounts of detailed information from resource-intense, metalcasting operations. Computers can automatically collect this stream of key data for detailed analysis and reporting. Critical operations such as melting are analyzed in real-time and operators get immediate alerts when abnormal conditions occur.

Sophisticated data analysis tools provide key management data in visual summaries, key performance indicators and reports. A unique Production Dashboard, developed to rapidly process huge amounts of data collected from IIoT devices in a foundry environment, will be demonstrated.

This presentation will highlight different ways to exploit these new IIoT technologies to increase production, lower costs and increase profit.

This AFS Members Only Webinar will begin at 1 p.m. CST.
