The new Industry 4.0 solutions to be highlighted by Emag serve to interconnect sensor, operating and production data with the analysis and process know-how of the company's engineers. The solutions are said to offer genuine value-added for customers in the monitoring of production processes, for instance through the Multi-Machine-Monitor, which allows the complete supervision of all production machines using a single end device. A second example is Machine Status, a tool for monitoring all the relevant production and energy efficiency data. According to the company, these important indicators are clearly displayed and available anywhere and at any time. The Industry 4.0 service solutions include Remote Experts, a service-on-demand package that gives users a highly efficient way of detecting and eliminating faults as well as fast expert help in the case of malfunctions. Finally, the machine condition assessment tool Fingerprint provides a diagnosis of machine tool axes and therefore helps increase machine availability and productivity and reduce costs per unit.
The "Highlights" are a small selection from the Technical Press Information (TPI) for EMO Hannover 2017 that has been compiled for you by scientific staff at the VDW.
