Members from our parent company, BNF Technology, had a successful exhibition last week in Mumbai, India. Automation Expo 2022 brought industry experts from far and wide together to discuss all things automation.

The exhibition brought a mix of organizations and manufacturers interested in robotics, process automation, and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) hardware devices. The ability of IIoT to combine monitoring sensors and critical assets together has led us into the 21st century. And on this path of automation, organizations have more control over their equipment and eliminate time spent on repeating tasks.

This is where solutions like our software and related platforms enhance operational efficiency. With the help of software, you can save time making decisions and increase plant safety.

Automation Definitions

Merriam-Webster: technique of making an apparatus, a process, or a system operate automatically

International Society of Automation (ISA): the creation and application of technology to monitor and control the production and delivery of products and services

Wikipedia: a wide range of technologies that reduce human intervention in processes. Human intervention is reduced by predetermining decision criteria, subprocess relationships, and related actions — and embodying those predeterminations in machines

Automation Across Nations

Automation technology and software can be applied to any sector, and we have seen many customers across industries expanding their usage and application. At this year’s exhibition, there were system integrators, consultants, and end users from various verticals with the most significant representation from Cement, Chemical, Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG), Petrochemical, and Automotive industries.

At the expo, there was an increased interest in data acquisition and integration as well as customized reporting and dashboarding functions. Not only are organizations looking to have improved insights for individual pieces of equipment but the entire plant as a whole. From there, the ability to centralize all plants up to the enterprise level either through on-premise applications or cloud applications showed how the industry is shifting away from siloed to holistic approaches.

We would like to thank Automation Expo 2022 for a great conference and all the attendees who visited our team to discuss trends in Industry 4.0, digital transformation, and automation.
