How IO-Link is Revolutionizing OEE, Change Over and Predictive Maintenance.

Wed. March 27 | 11:30 AM - 12:00 PM | INNOVATION Zone 2

How is IO Link being implemented for both the machine builder and End User? Join us to see how to improve Overall Equipment Efficiency by taking advantage of how machine builders are enabling intelligent devices to assist with Change Over and Predictive Maintenance. This is the Industrial Internet of Things.

This presentation will discuss the basics of IO-Link as an interface and how to improve your existing controls architecture and increase production flexibility. In addition, we will discuss case studies and real-world examples of how IO-Link can increase equipment efficiency, reduce downtime, provide flexibility in change over, help implement predictive maintenance and ultimately save time & money for both machine builders and manufacturers.
