Plant Tour: Bowden Manufacturing

Using Sensors, Digital Technology, and Robots to Ramp Up a Job Shop

Join us for our December plant tour to see how sensors, the cloud, machine learning, and the Internet of Things are helping operators at Bowden Manufacturing make better choices on the floor. Attendees will see how Bowden is using their newly-collected data to better schedule their work in busy times. According to Andy McCartney, President of Bowden Manufacturing, these are problems that have bugged him for 19+ years since he took over the company. And, as he explained in a recent Manufacturing Works Lunch 'n' Learn, the investment a year ago in digital technology is providing him data that's making a difference for their business.
