Firstly, core aspects of Heller4Industry embrace supplementary machine functions, on-demand services and enhanced service capabilities. In addition, Heller4Operation is an easy-to-use, operator-oriented user interface for the company's machines. The use of touch controls at the tool/workpiece loading station is said to promote fast, robust operation. The second area of activity, Heller4Services, comprises digital services. The services interface focuses on transparency of manufacturing and maintenance processes. The module forms the basis for evaluations and statistics, thus providing support in reducing machine downtimes. The third area, Heller4Performance, involves machine analysis for process and performance optimization, the time-synchronous extraction of real-time data into the Internet, and the evaluation and graphical display via an external platform. For the exhibitors, the aim of all these solutions remains the reduction of customer cycle times, and therefore workpiece costs, by enabling high productivity.
