Page 16 of 59 15 TE Wire & Cable (Saddle Brook, NJ, US), a manufacturer of thermocouple wire, and Plataine (Waltham, MA, US), a provider of Industrial IoT and AI-based optimization software for advanced manufacturing, announced at SAMPE 2018 a partnership for what the companies are calling Smart Thermocouple solutions. Plataine president and CEO Avner Ben-Bassat (left) and Vlad Fedorchak, TE Wire & Cable's business unit manager, Aerospace Composites, were on hand at the Plataine booth to greet show visitors (see photo). The joint solution reportedly integrates IoT, AI and thermocouple technologies to improve efficiencies and quality. TE Wire & Cable's thermocouples are connected to Plataine's IoT-based AI software via a simple hard- ware infrastructure based on RFID tags and engraved bar-codes. Plataine's software then monitors the ther- mocouples' location, status and duty-cycles to provide automated, real-time alerts and TE Wire & Cable, Plataine join forces to develop smart thermocouples Source | CW / Ph oto | Jeff Sloan Photo | CompositesWorld Smart Thermocouples (continued on p. 16)
