Industry 4.0

Industry 4.0

This is the text from the Tillsonburg Connects article referenced previously explaining Industry 4.0.  Our explanation of how we fit in the Industry 4.0 space can be found here.

"Industry 4.0” was the brainchild of the German government, and describes the next phase in manufacturing – a so-called fourth industrial revolution. The phases consist of the following:

- Industry 1.0: Water/steam power

- Industry 2.0: Electric power

- Industry 3.0: Computing power

- Industry 4:0: Internet of Things (IOT) power

As you can imagine, building a new industrial paradigm around the Internet of Things calls for managers and professionals across all occupations to step up and support growth in new ways. Industry 4.0 will involve horizontal and vertical system integration, the Internet of Things, cybersecurity, the cloud and Big Data, robots and additive manufacturing (among other factors).

In order to support the integration of Industry 4.0 concepts into the local economic base, Tillsonburg Town
Council has approved a three-year collaboration with the Manufacturing Acceleration Program (MAP). The goal of this collaboration is to facilitate growth by raising the competitiveness and profitability of local manufacturing companies. This will be accomplished by defining clear and distinctive business strategies and knowledge transfer, and by focusing on innovation in products, processes and markets.

The Tillsonburg Economic Development Office and MAP representatives have already begun working with local companies. However, if you are interested in finding out more about how this could benefit your company, please contact Cephas Panschow, Development Commissioner, at 519.688.3009, ext 3250 or visit www.mapprogram.info.

Tillsonburg Connects Article

The following is the text from the Tillsonburg Connects Newsletter that is put out by the town of Tillsonburg.  I thought it would be good to post here as well.

The Town of Tillsonburg is pleased to welcome Triton Innovation Inc, a recently established machine builder/systems integrator, to the community! Triton’s services range from integrating data into processes to giving machines the power of sight (enables more complex tasks to be performed) to making robots collaborative (humans and robots working together in the same space)!

While the manufacturing sector is very dynamic, many companies have not fully taken advantage of advancements in technology to better manage their production processes. Integrating technology into industrial processes has been coined “Industry 4.0” (see Industry 4.0 sidebar on Page 4) and this term is becoming more widely known. More importantly, leading edge manufacturers are taking steps to make their businesses more agile and better able to respond to changes in consumer preferences and the implementation of technology.

Triton is a pioneer in cyber-physical systems, which are a merger of physical equipment and the virtual model of that equipment. This system enables a synchronized simulation of a robotic system and can lead to a shorting of the cycle between design and launch of a product. This can lead to robots that are essentially “self-taught”! This technology can also lead to improvements in workplace safety.

While Triton is a recent start-up company, the staff has over seventy years of integration experience and has been involved in many innovative and exciting projects over the years. At Triton, they aim to improve processes and make equipment more efficient while reducing costs and improving revenue streams.

For more information on how to implement technology into your company, please visit www.tritoninnovation.com or contact Steve Spanjers at (519) 842-0127.

Welcome to Triton Innovation Inc.

I'm very excited to have finally launched this website.  I have been working on starting up my little company for the last few months, and I had no idea how much work it would actually be.  It has been frustrating, rewarding, fun, and painful, all at the same time.  I hope to use this space in the future to keep you updated on what is going on with me, and with the company.  In the meantime, feel free to add me on LinkedIn, or follow us on our social channels.
