Smart Factories, Facilities & Labs

Join us as Illumination Works’ IoT industry experts delve into an immersive Smart Factory/Industry 4.0 Transformation simulation to demonstrate the inner workings and applicability of an industrial IoT platform to manage a machine shop leveraging PTC Thingworx. This demonstration will illustrate how you can leverage the data being collected from controllers and machines to digitally transform manufacturing, control and monitor energy consumption, and manage the quality and serviceability of your equipment from a single interface.  

In addition, Illumination Works will share how they built an application to monitor and alert on the paint booths for Aircraft Depot Overhaul. This simulation monitors environmental properties like airflow and air quality during cleaning and depainting, which are critical for worker safety. Other capabilities include monitoring water quality and temperature during the paint process to ensure proper paint adhesion and quality.
