Blog Article | Preparing for a DC / Assembly Tooling Future

Once upon a time, when we were merely in the flirtatious throes of recognising the upcoming shift in manufacturing processes; Forbes recognised Industry 4.0 as ‘the fourth revolution in manufacturing, taking what was started in the third revolution with the adoption of computers and automation, and enhancing it with smart and autonomous systems fuelled by data and machine learning.’

As the world moves towards a smarter, more unified standard of operations, Industry 4.0 offers companies the ability to create a far more connected manufacturing environment with real time data analysis. In the article, Forbes went on to elaborate that ‘computers are connected and communicate with one another to ultimately make decisions without human involvement,’ and as machines keep gaining intelligence, factories will ultimately become more efficient and productive and less wasteful.

In line with Industry 4.0; modern DC Tooling solutions offer an improved sense of precision and accuracy which are critical for detailed operations.
