Applying Industry 4.0 to the Cable Factory Environment

The 2019 IWCS Cable and Connectivity Symposium in North Carolina may have come to a close but the debate on how best to deploy Industry 4.0 methodologies within the factory environment certainly continues.

A top of the mind association with Industry 4.0 tends to be the purchase of new machines, equipment, implementation of big data, virtual reality, robotics or even building a new factory.  Cimteq’s paper seeks to offer an alternative view to reaping the benefits offered by Industry 4.0 – that of flexibility, customization and future proofing – but in a way that capitalizes on current assets to make them more responsive.

It was a topic that piqued the interest of so many delegates visiting Cimteq’s stand at IWCS.  Richard Cotter, Cimteq’s Sales Director, explains:  “It’s the learning element of the IWCS symposium which creates such a lively atmosphere and  interesting debate. How much does it cost to deploy Industry 4.0 technologies? At what stage should a cable manufacturer consider implementation?

“Cimteq is committed to helping its clients achieve the shortest time-to-benefit window in implementing their cable manufacture and design software.  Events such as IWCS present the perfect opportunity for us to illustrate how our software addresses particular scenarios.”
