Honeywell, SKF Launch Industrial Internet of Things Project
Honeywell Process Solutions and SKF have launched a joint pilot project aimed at developing Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) solutions. The project, which will be carried out at a copper mine in Latin America, aims to create a digital standard for improved machine efficiency, reliability and competitiveness for industrial customers.
"Leveraging the IIoT gives manufacturers real-time access to operating information from an incrementally larger data set across not only one site or plant, but across an entire enterprise," said Shree Dandekar, vice president and general manager for Honeywell Connected Plant.
