AI: The Next Evolution of the Information Age in Manufacturing

Billions of IIoT devices are spewing out data every day, yet the vast majority of information goes unused. Similar to planting crops but failing to reap them, many existing cables are unable to process all the IoT data, impeding our ability to compile and use the data effectively. The smart cable initiative aims to help customers process this information more efficiently.

The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) uses internet-connected devices capable of collecting and analyzing real-time data. Manufacturing efficiency, productivity, and quality can all be enhanced by analyzing this data. There are two leading technologies shaping the future of IIoT: AI and smart cables. With AI, IIoT data can be analyzed to reveal patterns and trends humans may struggle to do otherwise. Smart cables are equipped with sensors and electronic capability to monitor cable health and predict when failures may occur. Nortech is revolutionizing the industry landscape with its advanced solutions. Our progressive designs and state-of-the-art manufacturing techniques bring lighter, more efficient build processes to our medical, aerospace & defense, and industrial customers while ensuring their complex needs are met. Nortech’s engineering team is pushing boundaries and driving change in ruggedized cable technology as part of a never-ending mission to deliver innovative solutions. IIoT has immense potential to create sustainable and efficient manufacturing and new product development.
