According to research carried out by Subcon, over a third of UK manufacturing and engineering professionals lack understanding of Industry 4.0.
In spite of this, an increasing number continue to tap into technologies associated with the fourth industrial revolution, suggesting that investments are driven more by competitiveness than by knowledge.
To give its customers a better understanding of interconnected technologies, leading systems integrator Boulting Technology has relaunched its website with a wealth of new content and resources to help educate and inform its customers about Industry 4.0.
One of the biggest assets of the relaunched website is its resources tab.
Covering a variety of topics ranging from the top causes of Programmable Logical Controller (PLC) failure to protecting your plant from industrial computer viruses. The new addition to the site is a hub of information for both customers and other professionals in the industry.
The resource hub will be continuously updated with new content. There is still an increasing demand from customers who are looking to invest in Industry 4.0 technologies, but many are unsure of where to start.
Boulting Technology’s new website content comments on a range of industry issues and acts as a source of advice on the tools needed to upgrade customer’s manufacturing systems in line with the latest technologies.
Additional resources on the new website include its Latest News & Industry 4.0 Insights blog, which will feature a plethora of articles on topics such as plug and play technologies and predictive maintenance.
This will give Boulting Technology’s customers an even deeper insight into the latest manufacturing and automation trends, and at the same time will explain how the company’s own offering can help them tap into them.
The Industry 4.0 Insights blog hosts an abundance of engaging articles based around the changing digital landscape, which subscribers can directly receive by signing up to regular email updates.
Nick Boughton, digital lead at Boulting Technology, will be the primary author of the blog, bringing a wealth of knowledge to help readers delve into digital technologies.
As Boulting Technology’s end-to-end digitalisation service also positions it as an expert in industrial cyber security, customers can turn to the new website to learn about how to maximise the potential of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), smart technologies and data analytics, while ensuring the safety of their company’s network.
“We’re very excited to have relaunched the website” explains Boughton. “With new features like the resource hub, we’re hoping the website does not only inform customers about Boulting Technology’s offering, but also helps reinforce our position as experts in systems integration.
“Here at Boulting Technology, our products and services ensure customers can make the most out of digital trends and technologies, while integrating them safely and effectively. Our website is an extension of this offering, as its new features mean customers can turn to it for advice, information, and inspiration on how to manage their own facilities.”
