                                        Hot on the heels of Lean Manufacturing the focus has once again changed.

                                        With the goal to improve manufacturing performance, using more automated operations and the use of data analytics, Smart Manufacturing (SM) is today’s Holy Grail. This technology-driven approach, using internet connected machinery to monitor the production process, has seen the development of smart machine components.

                                        SMC IO-Link sensors, IO-Link master and IO Link actuators are just some of our smart products that can help improve your productivity and reduce your costs.

                                        New technology enables sensors and actuators to become smarter but…

                                        What is IO-Link really?

                                        IO-Link (IEC61131-9) is an open standard serial communication protocol that allows the bidirectional exchange of data from sensors and devices that support IO-Link and are connected to a master. The IO-Link master can transmit this data over various networks, fieldbuses, or backplane buses, making the data accessible for immediate action or long-term analysis via an industrial information system (PLC, HMI, etc.). Each IO-Link device has an IODD (IO Device Description) file that describes it and its IO-Link capabilities.

                                        Did you know that...

                                        IO-Link is not another fieldbus. It is a point-to-point communication between a compatible IO-Link Master and a field device. Because IO-Link is an open standard, Master devices are available for virtually any fieldbus or automation system (PLC).

                                        SMC’s approach on Industry 4.0 - Smart Flexibility

                                        From mass production to mass customisation, does it sound familiar?

                                        This is the main concern of the Industry 4.0, Factory of the Future, Smart Factory or Digitalisation, you name it. It is no longer to mass produce, but to do it in a personalised, cost-effective, speed and sustainable way.

                                        Against the backdrop of rapid changes in expectations and preferences, in the accepted time to market, a sphere where loyalty has become rather slippery; where technologies are developing much faster than our understanding of them, we feel we need to grab something, and that something is Flexibility.

                                        Through a close partnership with you, SMC’s Smart Flexibility is based on making your machines Industry 4.0-proof, in order to equip them with the necessary flexibility that markets are calling for. Smart Flexibility combines what works best; expertise in automation and the passion of working shoulder-to-shoulder with you.
