Developing Smart Factory Operating Devices and Software

https://korean-electronics.com//inquiryGST, a supplier of smart factory, is moving to strengthen its smart factory construction business by using the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).
GST recently established a subsidiary of an IIoTspecialized company called ITF and decided to independently develop IIoT’s hardware and software, essential systems in establishing a smart factory.
GST plans to use the software for an automation control system required in the establishing and management of smart factories from ITF, for the construction business of smart factories. ITF is supposed to be responsible for the upgrade and selling of the smart factory device called “GIOT 1605” for IIoT-based machine tools developed independently by GST.
The GIOT 1605 is a device born to be used for replacing existing industrial computers in the smart factory. This can monitor precisely the whole process from the warehousing of parts to processing and release and the specific operating status of machine tools in place of computers when operating machine tools such as grinding machines, and drilling machines.


The GIOT 1605 was initially developed to be a product that can optimize the construction of smart factories for small-and medium-sized enterprises that use machine tools and now its utility is becoming popular among general manufacturers, resulted in the selling of more than 400 units.
GST is a small but specialized company professionally committed to supplying solutions for the construction and management of smart factories. GST grasps the products, production scale, automation level, medium- and long-term plans of the necessary company for smart factories in advance and then constructs the optimized smart factory depending on the certain sites.
Last year, GST independently developed its ‘cloud-based smart factory system,’ integrated with cloud technology. While lowering security risks caused by the construction of smart factory of small- and medium-sized manufacturers, this system elevates the collection and utilization of data.
The company’s president explained, “As the sales growth trend of IIoT area was noticeable in the supply business of smart factories, we established a separate department for the sector composing of more than ten workers. GST will be responsible for all the processes related to the construction of smart factory and ITF will play the role of professionally developing and supplying various kinds of IIoT hardware and software, connected with smart factory business.”

Smart Factory Platform “WimFactory”

https://korean-electronics.com//inquiry[INQ. NO. 1708E02] UlalaLAB in the Smart Content Center of the National IT Industry Promotion Agency was selected as one of the top 10 global start-ups in recognition of WimFactory, a smart factory platform based on the IIoT (Industrial IoT) and data in the fourth industrial revolution sector. The start-up introduced a smart factory not for large companies such as GE and Siemens but rather for small and mid-sized enterprises.
“I feel honored as our company was singled out as one of the top 10 via an evaluation by the judging committee consisting of scientists, entrepreneurs, investors and influential industry experts,” said Kang Hak-joo, CEO of UlalaLAB. “I hope that WimFactory will be a big helpinghand to many manufacturing companies brooding over the construction of smart factories due to the advent of the fourth industrial revolution.”
Smart factory platform WimFactory by UlalaLAB can be built by attaching the smart factory IoT device Wicon of UlalaLAB’s own development to existing facilities and equipment after connecting it to a measurement sensor. Its device cost is one-tenth of the price of an existing platform. Monthly cloud cost enables people to use the service easily and conveniently.
Accordingly, this greatly reduces burdens of initial smart factory construction costs. Users can monitor real-time data from equipment collected through Wicon with smartphones, PCs, tablets and so forth.
UlalaLAB is currently providing the WimFactory platform to a Nike footwear manufacturing company in Indonesia and Atlas Copco Korea, a Swedish equipment company. The company is headquartered in the Smart Content Center of the National IT Industry Promotion Agency.
