Every day, thousands of goods are transported and exchanged in ship ports worldwide. According to the UK Port Freight Statistics, major ports in the United Kingdom handled 117.6 million tonnes of freight in the third quarter of 2017 [Department of Transport (PDF)]. This transfer of goods from port to ship must also operate within a set time frame. Therefore, streamlining the transfer and inspection process is essential to meet deadlines.
As a solution to this demand, some shipping operators are utilising industrial- grade PCs to optimise its operations. This device has the capability to withstand the existing work environment in cargo ships. And, it also comes with a projected capacitance touchscreen technology which can accurately determine touch inputs despite wet climates. So, expect that this device can function effectively on cargo ship operations.
So, how can this device provide efficiency in cargo ship operations? Learn more on this blog how using projected capacitive touchscreen PCs can optimise the cargo ship operations.

Food security is becoming the primary concern in many countries. In fact, experts predict that in order to meet the global food demand by the year 2050, food production should be increased by 70% [FAO-United Nations]. So, to meet the market needs, poultry processing plants are using an automated system in certain areas of production.
This is also the reason why many poultry processing plants use industrial-grade computing devices to streamline operations. These devices function for extended periods of time due to its rugged components. This reliability makes the industrial grade panel computer an ideal computing solution in poultry processing factories.
Learn more on this blog how utilising industrial panel PCs can improve the production rate of poultry processing plants.

There is an increasing demand for steel products in the market [Steel Product Demand]. This means that steel manufacturing facilities must improve their rate of production. And, one of the sought-after solutions by steel making plants is implementing the automated system.
Now, existing computer software, such as the Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM) system, can be the right computing solution. But, operating these complex programs require reliable computing devices. Hence, it would be ideal to integrate industrial-grade computers.
Industrial-grade PCs have rugged features that allow the CIM system to function in various conditions. In fact, some ruggedised PCs operate in temperatures beyond 50oC. So, learn more on this blog how the steel manufacturing system can be improved by using an industrial computer.

Global food demand increases yearly due to the growing population. In fact, by the year 2020, there will be a 30% increase in the global demand for packaged milk products (Tetra Pak Dairy index). To address this need, many aspects of the tetra packaging process are automated.
The automated process is monitored by industrial-grade computing devices. These devices are connected to sensors which can accurately determine the quality each product.
In addition, these devices function optimally regardless of its operating times. This is because of its excellent build quality and rugged features, such as its IP69K rating and NEMA sealing. This prevents water and loses by-products from damaging the internal components.

Today, competition drives the shipping industry to innovate and streamline shipping and logistics operations. Hence, many shipping companies are using advanced terminal operating systems and intra-port communications to monitor shipping activities.
In fact, industrial grade computers are being utilised to track these activities. The industrial computing devices can operate for extended periods of time due to its rugged build quality. The S17 rugged industrial panel PC, in particular, is encased in a stainless steel covering, preventing intrusions from damaging its internal parts.
Utilising industrial panel computers to monitor shipping and logistics operations on the port also yields some advantages.

Meat packaging plants process, pack and distribute hundreds of food products daily. In fact, many aspects of the meat processing system are being digitised to keep up with the growing consumer demands.
An example is during the meat butchering phase. Robotic cutters and advanced sensors are used to precisely cut the meat into the standardised sizes. Afterwards, the computer assesses the quality of the products before it is packaged and shipped.
Industrial computing devices like the S17 rugged industrial computers are utilised to ensure that the process is optimised. Its industrial grade internal components allow the device to perform optimally for extended hours whilst functioning properly. In addition, it has a NEMA sealing that acts as another protective layer, which resists intrusions such as water and food particles.

Food undergoes many procedures before the items are packed in a tetra pack packaging plant. Many of these processes are automated to meet the production quota.
Industrial computing devices like the S12 rugged industrial PCs with projected capacitance are able to monitor these automated these processes efficiently. The industrial grade computing device is able to assess the product quality and monitor plant activities.
Now, is there a need to monitor the automated processes in this industry’s packaging plant? Find out on this blog how the S12 projected capacitive touchscreen PCs can properly observe the packing process.
