The project will use cutting edge sensors and the latest data science techniques to analyse information and provide new insights into the control of manufacturing processes.
Industry 4.0 is about creating smart factories and cyber-physical systems to deliver revolutionary improvement.
The University of Sheffield are a known world leader in Engineering innovation and one of the highly prestigious Russel Group of UK universities. Their work is pioneering the application of advanced Industry 4.0 technologies, and this project will introduce these benefits into industrial and manufacturing applications. The ground-breaking project with Tinsley Bridge is grant assisted by Royal Academy of Engineering.
Mark Webber, Managing Director, said “It’s important for the UK to be at the forefront of the 4th industrial revolution. For Tinsley Bridge it’s about joining up the all the equipment, people and information systems, creating a smarter factory that will help us manufacture technically advanced products. The aim is to deliver step change improvement in internal efficiencies, quality and process capability to keep our company at the leading edge of Lean Manufacture”.
