Nord Drivesystems joins Open IIoT Panel

Nord Drivesystems has joined SMC Pneumatics, Beckhoff Automation, Balluff and ZI-Argus in an expert panel that will address the complexities of Industry 4.0 and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) technologies. The panel, Open IIoT, will seek to not only solve automation challenges but to demonstrate tangible customer savings. Nord Drivesystems Managing Director Martin Broglia said that meeting smart factory needs and staying ahead of the curve is key to the company’s success in the market.

“Today, there is a demand by more and more customers for IoT technologies to keep them informed, remain flexible and provide efficiencies. More than ever it’s about increased outputs, reduced inputs, more accuracy, more profits and more communication,” he said.

As a German-born company, Nord Drivesystems is no stranger to the world of Industry 4.0. Broglia said that, with its decentralised intelligent drive units that can evaluate the application data and transfer it directly to a sequence control unit in real time, the company was in a good position to offer Industry 4.0 solutions.

The adoption of Industry 4.0 technologies will accelerate rapidly in Australia over the next few years. “The benefits that Nord is seeing overseas cannot be further ignored otherwise we will be left too far behind.”
