Regardless of whether it is an existing plant or a modern plant with various control systems, we will find a solution tailored to your plant. Without long downtimes or cost-intensive IT projects, we record all machine data relevant to you and forward it to a higher-level IT system. In doing so, we adapt to your existing machine and IT infrastructure to make integration of the new system as easy as possible for you.
Data is not called “the gold of the 21st century” for nothing. At the forefront is the transparency of your system, which creates a decisive competitive advantage for you. Get comprehensive information on malfunctions, downtimes, plant running times and scrap rates and optimise your production. The storage of production and process data, assigned to a specific batch or order, enables you to trace unexpected production errors (traceability).
It is a sign of quality and often also a legal requirement that you can record information on every process step of your product and store it in databases for several years. Use machine connectivity to create intelligent and networked production and pave your way towards Industry 4.0 and IoT.
In the first step, the machine must be connected to the company network via an Ethernet interface. Many controllers already have corresponding interfaces, and there are also various options for retrofitting older controllers. In this context, we are also happy to offer our IT security analysis and check your network structure and firewalls.
Most modern controllers already have one of the most important communication protocols, OPC UA. If it is not integrated in an older control system, it can be retrofitted via external hardware, an OPC UA gateway or OPC UA server.
