Simm Engineering Group Showcase Industry 4.0 Technology


Find out more about how we can help you move towards no faults forward manufacturing and smooth your transition into industry 4.0 technology.

A key B2B exhibition for companies across the region, Showcase Sheffield returns to Ponds Forge on Wednesday 23 October. The team from Simm Engineering Group will be on stand 100.

This year, in addition to offering advice on our market-leading Atlas Copco products and compressed air systems, we will be focusing on our partnership with Desoutter. A global leader in electric and pneumatic assembly tools, Desoutter is the go-to name for a wide range of manufacturing industries, including automotive and aerospace.

Industry 4.0 technology
As our Industry 4.0 Partner Distributor, Desoutter is helping us to increase the range of products we can supply to our manufacturing customers and to offer you even better levels of support.

Businesses across the UK are waking up to the importance of transitioning towards 4.0 technology and here at Simm we are keen to remain at the forefront of this revolution.

Industry 4.0 will see more automation and better data exchange in manufacturing, with key issues including:

  • Big data – how to collect and use data to inform decision-making
  • The Internet of Things (IoT) – how devices connect to the internet and each other, from cloud computing to smart machines
  • Smart technology – the self-optimisation of smart machines and the interconnectivity of the stages of production
  • Robotics, 3-D printing and other new technologies

All of these developments have the potential to improve the interconnectivity and interoperability of the smart factory of the future.

No Faults Forward
We are also working with Desoutter to introduce no faults forward into manufacturing processes. In a nutshell, this means that faults are identified and dealt with during a process rather than at the end, using intelligent assembly systems.

Desoutter Pivotware is one way to implement this, find out more in this video…

No faults forward and industry 4.0 technology are – individually and together – among the most important considerations for any forward-looking manufacturing company.

Our Simm Engineering Group team has a wealth of industry experience and will be able to talk you through the options to improve productivity and reduce costs at your site, while preparing for the revolutionary changes ahead.

Whatever your business size, there are opportunities available to you now to help your company grow, develop and compete in the marketplace.
