If people were asked to consider the first things that come to mind when they hear the words "Welding Industry" many would respond with "slow to change" or "old school" what if these were just perceptions? and the only thing standing in our way for the welding industry to be seen as innovative, progressive and cutting edge..

Industry 4.0 and Welding

Following the invention of the first steam engine being the first major industrial revolution, Mass production & Electricity and Computer & Automation being the 2nd & 3rd great industrial revolutions.

Industry 4.0 also referred to as "Smart Factories" with Cyber physical systems is now the fourth great industrial revolution. Built on the connected Internet of Things (IoT), Industry 4.0 is all about digitalization, automation and /or improvements to existing manufacturing processes through digital interconnectivity between the operator and equipment. Why is this all so important? The reason is simple: Embedded in all the data is untapped potential for process optimization to drive cost and efficiency improvements. Industry 4.0 will drive the ability to predict when potential problems are going to occur before they happen; open the doors for greater insight, control and data visibility across an operation's entire welding process. 

Industry 4.0 as revolutionary as it is, is not about replacing the fundamental art and critical nature of welding. Nothing can replace the skill and craftsmanship that comes from humans behind the hood. Industry 4.0 is an opportunity to update and optimize our industry, refresh our methodologies and deliver cutting edge, next generation performance levels.
