It’s no secret that technology is dramatically transforming the manufacturing arena. We’re witnessing a new industrial revolution, led by a dynamic set of trends and pushed forward by digital disruptors. The ground is shifting beneath manufacturers - and the companies that build the machines they use. One new emerging area that promises to deliver powerful new capabilities to both manufacturers and to the machine builders that supply them is connected machines. Connected machines use Internet of Things (IoT) technologies to connect machines and factory robots beyond the plant floor, all the way to the machine builders
that created them.
