How 5G is Transforming Manufacturing

The advent of 5G technology is a highly anticipated tech innovation, particularly in the manufacturing sector, which is poised to benefit greatly from this development. With promising benefits such as super-fast connection, low latency, ultra-reliability, more bandwidth than Wi-Fi and 4G LTE, and support for thousands of devices in one location, no wonder everyone is excited about 5G technology.

With 5G, you can browse the Internet ten times faster, download a full-length movie in less than a minute and stream crisp, clear 4K video. However, the full potential of 5G technology can only be realized when the extent to which it can fundamentally change the manufacturing sector is established.

To understand how 5G technology can revolutionize manufacturing, we’ll talk about how 5G is set to transform the industry.

Automation of Auxiliary Processes is the Key to the Smart Factory

Market demand is continuously evolving, which is forcing companies to reorganize their existing production strategies. Based on traditional automation systems, plants have looked for ways to reduce downtime, organize a safe work environment using mobile automated guided vehicle (AGV) robots and collaborative robots, and take advantage of the potential of advanced analysis of data acquired within the implemented Internet of Things (IoT) ecosystem.

For the best possible management of real-time manufacturing process, it is crucial to enhance the competence of the IoT ecosystem in the management of auxiliary processes and company resources. According to the concept of Industry 4.0 all production processes should be integrated, monitored and analyzed to achieve the best management based on the actual state of the factory. In this way, technology can inform people of the need for repairs and anticipate possible breakdowns, making downtime  less likely.

War of the Currents: Paving the Way to Industry 4.0

Beginning in the late 1800’s, Thomas Edison and Nikola Tesla were involved in a competition which came to be known as the War of the Currents. The War of the Currents was a series of events related to the introduction of competing electric power transmission systems to the world in the late 1800’s. 

Both Edison and Tesla were able to develop, imagine or create inventions that are utilized in modern factory environments in some capacity even today. When we consider Industry 4.0 as a 4th Phase of industrial growth, evolution and progress, it is difficult to dispute that both Edison and Tesla contributed to what is essentially the connected manufacturing environment of the modern age.

Thomas Edison is still considered one of the greatest inventors to ever live.
