Sustainability, safety, and maintenance with smart pneumatics

Smart pneumatics is a system of industrial automation that utilizes compressed air as its primary power source. It is a cost-effective and reliable way to control complex processes in a range of industries, such as food and beverage, automotive, aerospace, manufacturing, and more.

Smart pneumatics can be used to control a variety of machines and processes, such as the movement of robots, the flow of liquids and air, and the operation of valves. This system is powered by sensors that can detect pressure, temperature, and other variables in real-time. The data collected by these sensors can then be used to adjust the system’s settings to optimize performance. Smart pneumatics can also be used to reduce energy usage by monitoring air pressure and adjusting it accordingly. By using this system, companies can save on energy costs and increase efficiency.

In this article from Emerson expert, Eileen Voges, she discussed the advantages and capability of combining digital transformation and pneumatics; from IIoT to energy usage, maintenance, and safety.

Smart pneumatics have become increasingly popular in recent years, as they offer a range of advantages over traditional pneumatics. By automating processes and making them more efficient, digital solutions can save companies money while making their operations safer and more sustainable. It can also help reduce downtime by putting predictive maintenance into practice.

Learn more on how smart pneumatics technology can help you revolutionize the way you use pneumatics in industrial and manufacturing processes. With the right solutions in place, you can reduce your production energy use and improve environmental impact.
