VOLLMER is exhibiting at this year's EMO Hannover under the banner of "Shaping Success Together". Its exhibits center on the company's new digital initiative V@dison, which mechanical engineers can use to integrate their grinding and eroding machines into an IoT (Internet of Things) environment to help tool manufacturers implement Industry 4.0 projects.
That's why VOLLMER developed the IoT gateway, which makes it possible to exchange data between sharpening machines and various IoT platforms. The IoT gateway is based on open source standards and is platform-independent, meaning it can visualize and process data from VOLLMER machines and third-party providers. In addition to this digitization initiative, visitors can also experience the latest grinding and eroding machines for the wood processing and metalworking industries live in action - such as the VPulse 500 erosion machine for PCD-tipped rotary tools and the VGrind 360 grinding machine for carbide tools.
