Following on from their success at AUSPACK 2019 and the launch of Open IIoT, SMC will be showcasing at FoodTech Qld in July 2019.
Bringing only the best to Brisbane, SMC will use this as an opportunity to engage with visitors and demonstrate their solutions for the food and beverage industries.
No stranger to the industry, SMC has been promoting its customer energy saving journey which has seen great success around the country and internationally. Here, their qualified team walks the entire journey with its customers and urges any businesses who have not moved towards reducing their footprint to make small in-roads that will in-turn lead to big savings.
In today’s climate, 24.7 operations, stringent hygiene standards and zero defects must be met. William Lebihan, Head of Sales and QLD State Manager from SMC says that this is where their specialist team comes in. “We deliver customised solutions to the industry and ensure that our customers experience the highest levels of OEE (Operational Equipment Efficiency)”.
“Whether you’re farming cattle or vegetables, we have what it takes to support your automation requirements from paddock to plate” he continues.
The company is firmly focused on developing products for the future, delivering the ultimate competitive advantage for their customers. “Our mandate is centered around flexible, efficient components that are designed alongside our customers with factories of the future in mind”.
SMC has a clear strategy and the technology to help implement Industry 4.0 solutions for all its customers. Today it’s all about faster and more flexible processes and plants to ensure sustainable, increased production and reduced costs.
“SMC is also playing an active role in upskilling industry via ongoing training and using state-of-the-art training systems and aids, to further enhance the skills of maintenance teams for optimised productivity maintenance scheduling and fault finding analysis.” says William.
In addition, SMC will use FoodTech Qld as a platform to showcase one of its latest innovations for robotic applications, the EX600 wireless manifold (EX600-W). This decentralised solution is EtherNet/IP™ and PROFINET compatible, can withstand electric noise and is suitable for harsh, industrial environments.
“This wireless and decentralised fieldbus system can manage both digital and analogue signals, as well as pneumatic products. As a highly reliable unit, it makes use of frequency hopping techniques to prevent interference from other wireless equipment. Data also encryption stops unauthorised access.
