Industry 4.0 technologies (e.g., the Internet of Things, automated controls, cognitive computing, the cloud) have been proven to make manufacturing systems smarter, safer, and more profitable in many industries. But can powder and bulk solids handling processes be digitized? This panel will explore how digitization can improve the performance of your dry process and bulk solids handling systems with greater operational flexibility and safety. Topics will include:

  • What is industry 4.0 anyway, and what does it look like in a dry process and bulk solids handling plant?
  • How can implementation of Industry 4.0 technologies positively impact your bottom line and safety record?
  • How to identify where to use industry 4.0 technologies in your process
  • How to assess your facility’s current level of “digital maturity.”
  • How cyber-physical systems and artificial intelligence analytics allow you to predict and mitigate or eliminate safety hazards like combustible dust explosions, as well as costly inefficiencies, before they emerge as problems
