Gone are the days when human labour was needed in quantities unimaginable to perform the simplest of the tasks like packaging, mixing ingredients in a food factory, cutting out brand labels for products, etc. With machinery in the market today, you can even handle the most challenging procedures like manufacturing cars with exceptional brilliance and precision.
But what makes these machines smarter is their ability to understand the organisation’s requirements and striving towards meeting them. CIOT offers a wide range of industrial automation services to keep track of your machinery’s activities, performances, health and enables them to communicate with different technologies as well. Moreover, we assist you in planning, installing, operating and maintaining your automated industry.
With solutions provided by CIOT, you can monitor your organisation’s production, processing, energy utilisation and working of your utilities. By achieving all these targets, we guarantee you greater flexibility, scalability, integration of your utilities, optimised energy usage resulting in lower bills, top-grade approach towards your business, etc.
With predictive maintenance, you can take your organisation to new heights of success since you will be alerted regarding your equipment’s health. Using artificial intelligence, you can carry out inspection of your machinery, detect faults and get detailed reports for the same, schedule the repairment and manage your utility inventory during the uptime. Whilst in the downtime, the only task that needs to be done will be the repairment itself.Hence, you can stay prepared before the occurrence of any failure or outage and optimise your production as a result.
A vital element of industrial automation is the integration and inter-communication between different machines, utilities and technologies used in any organisation. Long story short, interoperability is the critical component for exercising decentralised control over all your devices to squeeze out every bit of their potential and optimise and scale up your manufacturing and revenues.

Industrial automation allows for faster product with less errors and increased product flexibility. Systems with advanced complexity, multiple changeovers or a variety of repetitive tasks can often benefit from automation. Automating will also allow you to gather critical operating data faster and more efficiently and guarantee that you are optimizing your operations with the best information available at all times. Ultimately, automation is becoming industry standard and will keep you up to date with competitors who are relying on automated processes for total control of the plant floor.
No. Simple systems that don’t require many repetitive tasks are often over engineered by automation. The goal when you automate a process is to achieve a higher efficiency and faster production, but if you’re automating the wrong systems or if you don’t have the proper bandwidth to handle the new technology, it can backfire. It’s important to consider a few things when determining how and when to go about automating your plant, namely:
Fewer employees, more efficiency, reduced errors, faster production, multiple changeovers, better information to improve the processes, modernization
These are typically the systems that are repetitive and that don’t involve any creativity or the “human touch” to execute.
There are many opportunities to upgrade plants to use industrial automation. Technology allows us to automate your systems whether you are working with a factory line up or a complex process system. Often, outdated systems can be upgraded for better efficiency and hardware that is supported. For certain repetitive processes, there is also the option of Robotic Process Automation, that can optimize and simplify entire plant procedures.
Other plant applications of industrial automation are complex control system migration and Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES).
Almost all industries can benefit from automation but a few of the most common industries that EPIC works with are food and beverage, commercial goods, energy, and pharmaceutical.
CIOT energy treats every project as a unique challenge so that we come up with a solution that is catered to your specific demands and desires. However, our Front-End Engineering Design process leaves nothing to chance and ensures that you have an information-based budget and timeline available to you before work begins. You know what to expect and what’s happening every step of the way. If you are interested in getting a quote for your industrial automation project, you can speak directly with our team CLICK HERE
Most industrial automation technology is built with integration in mind, which is why it is such a popular and successful tool for modernizing your plant and increasing your ROI at the same time. EPIC will work with you to create a custom system that will focus on maintaining the integrity of your plant functions and integrate seamlessly into your existing systems.
Some automation systems do serve the purpose of taking over repetitive tasks that can be completed faster and more efficiently by machines. However, as a general rule, automation does not make your current employees obsolete. Most plants today run with a combination of automated and non-automated systems that are integrated together and run by a managing team of employees. Your employees will work with and manage the new system, and ideally, it will make the work easier and more efficient for your entire existing team without completely alleviating the need for humans.
Some beneficial features of a typical industrial automation system are remote operational control, real time communications, multiple integrated controllers, and a fluid integration of the plant networks across the plant’s operational platform.
