Clever positioning of selected sensors - such as temperature or vibration sensors - in the machine bed enables a wide range of data to be collected and evaluated. These sensors can be mounted exactly where meaningful data for critical systems states is expected in accordance with the wishes of the customer.
This creates transprency in the production process and enables quick responses to changes in operating states or ambient conditions. Complete documentation also takes place to verify the quality of the production and manufactoring process.
In order to guarantee a consistent production and manufacturing quality of components, it is important to know the current conditions and wear characteristics of all relevant machine parts of a machine tool. This also applies to the machine bed, as the deformatin of the machine geometry has a major impact on the component accuracy.
The sensor data is collected, processed and transmitted using an industrial gateway. Depending on the wishes of the customer, this data can then be evaluated and visualised on different platforms (PC, mobile device, ...)
