Equipment keeps getting smarter—but how intelligent does my grinder need to be? I just turn it on to chop stuff up and turn it off to stop, right? There is a lot of interest recently in intelligent equipment, Industry 4.0 and equipment diagnostics. This presentation by industry expert Dave Miller will explain why size reduction equipment (granulators and shredders) of today is already smart. Conair will also take a look at what the technology incorporated in these pieces of equipment may look like in the future. Technology advancements in equipment like granulators is about more than just control logic and data gathering—it's about design innovations and best practices that increase efficiency, decrease energy consumption, increase reliability and ease of operation, while decreasing downtime and total cost of ownership.
