Welcome to i4.0 Today
i4.0 Today is an exclusive platform dedicated to the concept, technology and future of Industry 4.0.
Our mission is to Lead the Industry 4.0 movement and give an insight into Robotics, Artificial Intelligence, Industrial Internet of Things, Smart Factories and Additive Manufacturing within Electronics.
As industry experts, we understand the importance of The Fourth Industrial Revolution.
We focus on six key areas:
The Rise of Advanced Robotics
Robotics will shape the next era of automated production, by 2019 more than 1.4 million industrial robots will be installed throughout the world.
Advancements in manufacturing technologies are enabling faster, smarter and more efficient production, leading us closer to Industry 4.0.
Adaptive Artificial Intelligence
Artificial Intelligence is shaping the future of Advanced Robotics, Factory Automation, Networking and The Digital Revolution.
The Industrial Internet of Things
This interconnection will enable “Smart Factories” to take shape as equipment will use data to manufacture, move, report and learn.
The Future of Fabrication
Additive Manufacturing technologies provide flexible solutions to integrate endless fabrication within the manufacturing ecosystem.
The Future of The Smart Factory
Improve processes through self optimization with the seamless connection of individual production steps to actuators in the field.

The Fourth Industrial Revolution
Revolution is by its nature disruptive, and Industry 4.0 is no different from its predecessors.
The introduction of steam and water power replaced traditional sources such as human and animal with mechanical machines.
This process began the industrialisation and provided the foundations for the second Industrial Revolution.
The introduction of electrical energy created the foundations for mass production.
The implementation of this technology created the division between higher performing machined production and human labor.
Through the use of electronic and IT systems the 3rd Industrial Revolution pathed the way for automation in the production process.
The 4th industrial revolution is the coming together of cyber and physical networks with the goal to create truly autonomous systems.
