Technology Insights – Process Monitoring and Automation for SME’s

The fourth webinar in Enterprise Ireland’s Technology Insights series takes will focus on ‘Process Monitoring and Automation for SME’s’. Presented by Ciaran Doyle, Senior R&D and Business Development Engineer (Mechatronics) and Tanmay Swaroop, Research Assistant at IMaR Technology Gateway.

Process monitoring and automation are the principle means of reducing production costs, improving process continuity and product quality. The availability of low-cost, smart sensors make process monitoring a compelling, low-risk opportunity for many industries. It is the basis for both predictive maintenance, and real-time process control.

Monitoring and sensor technologies are components of automated processes, which serves to reduce waste, improve quality of work and provide a basis for continual improvement. Automation and process monitoring technologies are readily accessible to organisations of all sizes and underpin competitiveness in terms of cost and quality. This webinar will explore the methods and technologies required for implementing or enhancing monitoring and automation in SME’s.

The webinar will take place on Thursday 13th May 2021, you can register free here:
