Fori Automation wanted to solve a difficult problem in the aerospace industry with their innovative Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs). They needed an automation network that provided motion control, safety, and wireless in a single all-encompassing solution. PROFINET Does That.
The days of “dumb iron” in North America’s oil and gas fields are numbered. That’s the conviction of Darcy Falardeau of Precision Drilling Corporation, who sees modern communication networks like Profinet making drilling rigs and the associated on-site equipment smarter, and making the overall drilling process safer and more efficient.
Moving at the speed demanded in today’s business environment, where stiff competition means new products must be made and introduced faster than ever before, requires technologies that simplify production start-ups. For GE Appliances, those technologies include the Profinet industrial Ethernet network.
