The dream of Industry 4.0 is for machines on a factory floor to be connected, able to communicate with each other. Maintenance can take place before breakdowns occur as data are exchanged again and again. Output is maximized, downtime minimized.
Makers of presetting systems already were dealing with this basic concept. The systems keep track of available tooling as well as measure and inspect tools. This enables factories to maintain production. Now, presetters act as a building block of Industry 4.0.
