The June digital edition of Manufacturing AUTOMATION is now available!

Our cover story delves into why COVID-19 has created a sense of urgency to automate manufacturing supply chains. I checked in with a supply chain expert from IBM and with an Ontario automation supplier, who both said the manufacturing industry in North America will see rapid implementation of automation technologies for supply chain management to prepare for the next crisis.

Also in this issue, you’ll find:

Facing our digital future
Canadian manufacturers are facing many hurdles when it comes to technology adoption, according to a recent report


Simplfying cabling
With standards set, single-pair Ethernet is prepped for take-off

Getting smart
The pandemic has exposed operational shortcomings for companies that have not yet digitalized. Here’s how smart manufacturing is changing the way we do business

Ethernet-led control
How industrial Ethernet-enabled integrated motors facilitate data transfer to the PLC

Messages of support, encouragement and contributions to the fight against COVID-19 from the industrial automation community

And much more, including new products in connectivity, HMI and operator interface, hydraulics and pneumatics, motors and drives, robotics, sensors, and test and measurement.
