Staying on top of the latest technological advancements is essential in the manufacturing space. Utilizing the right tech in the right way can improve productivity, increase hiring and retention of younger workers, and positively impact the bottom line. In this episode of Great Question: A Manufacturing Podcast, Alexis Gajewski, filling in for Laura Davis, the editor in chief of New Equipment Digest, unveils the new products that were released in June.

Below is an excerpt from the podcast:

Welcome back to Great Question: A Manufacturing Podcast. I'm Alexis Gajewski, editor for Plant Services filling in for Laura Davis. Today's episode will cover the top new products that launched this month. 

First on our list is the SIMATIC Automation Workstation from Siemens USA. PLCs, being the brains of the factory, can quickly add up throughout the plant with each one requiring its own programming to align correctly with the others, causing challenges for operators to manage each point throughout the factory closely.

The SIMATIC Automation Workstation solves that challenge by replacing a PLC, HMI, and an edge device simultaneously with its single, software-based system. The workstation can be easily viewed and managed from a central point while letting operators deploy programming, updates, and patches to the entire fleet at once so the factory remains in synch.

The on-premise OT device uses Siemens industrial edge technology for high data throughput with low latency to run a variety of applications which include motion control, sequencing, safety, visual inspection, and robotic grasping and placing.

Number two on our list is right in time for these hot summer days on the job. The StaCool Premium Industrial Vest provides all-day cooling for workers in the summer heat.

Fully adjustable to all body types and sizes, it uses Velcro straps at the shoulders, chest, and stomach for the best fit and flexibility.
