3 Advantages of Electronic Cable Miniaturization for Machine Building

Evolution of electronic cable is similar to the evolution of technology in general – everything is certainly getting smaller.It’s transpiring in almost every industry. It’s happening all around us.

Industrial manufacturing is no different. In the manufacturing setting it’s called miniaturization. Customers are requesting the benefits of smaller machines and smaller devices and machine builders are listening.

Why? Because machine builders know their customers plan the plant floor the way a casino plans its layout. Every slot machine taking up space on the casino floor must earn back that space by bringing in a return on the investment. But what if a new design for smaller slot machines meant casinos could fit 10 more slot machines in the room? This would mean more income. The same goes for the plant floor. With smaller machines and devices, comes enhanced efficiency and cost savings.

Machine Building & The IIoT

The IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) is disrupting the manufacturing industry in eliminating rigid structures of production facilities and replacing them with flexible, networked production facilities.

What does this mean for machine builders?

Find out in this blog post, where I share my answers to a few questions about how Belden helped German-based machine builder Erhardt + Abt take advantage of the IIoT by creating an intelligent robot system.
