We all know Industry 4.0 is the fourth industrial revolution, but which technology is changing production today?
Various technologies have made Industry 4.0 a reality: Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), Internet of Things (IoT), virtual and augmented reality, big data, cloud, blockchain, or drones. To know about the industry 4.0 components, you can browse the internet.

In 2020, digital twins, limited computing, additive manufacturing, 5G and artificial intelligence (AI) will be the true pillars of Industry 4.0 (also known as Industry 4.0 in French). This allows for rapid innovation and tackling all this technology must include cybersecurity.
Why is this technology a pillar of Industry 4.0?
Industry 4.0 is characterized by the rapid provision of visible results from the data generated and collected and the extent to which this data affects users.
Digital twins are direct digital images of machines, devices, and processes associated with the real systems they represent through Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS). They allow you to experiment and try new solutions in much less time and for much less.
The difference between the third and fourth industrial revolutions is the use and collection of data. In an often competitive and transnational context, we need technology that enables production information to be used more quickly at any time, regardless of location.
Researching 3D printers with new materials creates unimaginable and revolutionary manufacturing processes and systems. This significantly reduces the cost of producing prototypes or short series.
Thanks to 3D printing, every element of different shapes and sizes can be printed in a completely personalized way with many materials, creating functional models and parts, even in small series, for a fraction of the price.
