SPS Italia 2019 - Le novità di ESA Automation
Great success and participation for ESA at SPS Italia 2019. During the three days of the event (from May 28th to 30th), we presented our latest industrial solutions. Our ERGO ergonomic station, new motion libraries for Esaware EW100 HMI, and ESA Servo Package (EWML + EWDL) got the attention of many participants, demonstrating once again the commitment of our brand in innovating the Italian and global industrial market.


Big Data Management in Smart Factories

Big Data Management - ESA Automation
The complexity of smart production systems generates new challenges in the industrial sector. In particular, the ever growing flow of data circulating in the Smart Factory requires rally efficient Big Data management systems.

In the factory of the future, production systems no longer follow a hierarchical structure. In fact, they are heterogeneous and flexible ecosystems, in which devices interact with each other in unified networks and with an event-based communication. System interconnectivity is fundamental to facilitate this communication.
