Stating that the new industrial phase can be described as encouraging current industries towards computerization in his speech, Bizel said; "In the age of digital transformation, machines will be able to understand what's going on around them end they'll be able to communicate with each other via internet protocols. This way it will become easier to adapt to competitive conditions in markets thanks to the ability of optimizing production lines in factories in accordance with personalized requirements. Using e-F@ctory, Mitsubishi Electric's answer to this new industrial phase, it is possible to establish the factories of the future, starting today. During this phase, thanks to the ever-increasing data transfer rates between robots and advanced robotics technologies that can communicate with each other, robots can control themselves in a more coordinated and precise fashion. Today, robots can communicate with other products on the production line thanks to e-F@ctory. In e-F@ctory concept, all products that make up the factory automation work integrated to one another with open architecture."
Reminding us of the importance of the ability to compete at a global level in order to have sustainable manufacturing capability in Turkey, Tolga Bizel said, "In order for industrialists to make production in global quality and to compete in global markets, they have to gain power in exports and optimize costs while increasing production quality. At this point, it is important that they closely follow factory automation sector and make necessary infrastructure investments in order to adapt to new technologies rapidly."
