Manufacturing Technology

As a tech writer, I write about robots, PLCs, big data, thermoplastics, smart fabrics, drones and sensors. I write about operations technology (OT), information technology (IT), the intersection of IT and OT, the Internet of Things (IoT) and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). I write about 3D printing too, but let’s be formal and call it additive manufacturing.
