Production safety due to competence
A process control system serves to control a production system. Modern process control systems automate process systems and illustrate the process. Thus the system operator can optimally analyse, control and plan the processes. A process control system helps companies to increase the efficiency of their production systems, to ensure the product quality and to react flexibly to market developments.
ERP systems represent all in-house business processes. The aim of the data integration is the access of different application areas to a uniform data model. The complete representation of all in-house business processes enables an efficient use of the available resources. Thus data redundancies are avoided as far as possible.
The integration of the production to a database allows an efficient realisation of production processes. Company resources can be used optimally which results in considerable cost savings. Furthermore, data redundancies are avoided because different application areas use a common database. The repair department also benefits from shorter service and check intervals.
Mass Customisation means the principles of the customised mass production or the individual production in series. This approach allows a customer-specific solution without giving up the advantages of a process-oriented series production. Due to modern production processes and technologies, the advantages of series and individual production are combined. Thus production companies can react more flexible and without additional efforts to individual customer requirements.
The complete recording of the production data for continuous monitoring and evaluation is the basis for the connected production. The different components and sensors of a robot system supply the data which is centrally saved, evaluated and made available for further use. Due to the constant monitoring of set/actual values, deviations from the plan can be recognised directly and corresponding corrections can be made.
The component-related parameter allocation allows the individual program selection in a robot system which is the basis for the use of a chaotic production system. The parameters can be allocated by different measures of component marking.
The continuous exchange of data and information between the component, the master system and the complete production environment during production allows a constant information flow. Different application areas benefit from this. The exact and direct information about product and process data results in an improved key figures management, immediate change possibilities and a higher system utilisation ratio. Due to the complete and location-independent information availability it is possible to optimise the service and maintenance intervals.
The complete networking of the whole safety technology of a production environment makes it possible that potential causes for a safety-relevant downtime are visible at first sight. The reduction of downtimes results in an increase of the utilisation ratio of a system and in higher quantities at shorter production times. Service and maintenance intervals are optimised by the complete and location-independent information availability.
A constant and continuous acquisition of all production data in a central master system allows the efficient realisation of production processes. When the production data are available for different interest groups, processes can be optimised and company resources can be used optimally. Besides, the service and maintenance intervals can be optimised by the complete and location-independent information availability.
A digital twin is a virtual image of the production environment which connects the real and the virtual world. Digital twins use real date of installed sensors which show, for example, the position of the components of a robot system. The coupling of the virtual and real worlds allow an optimum monitoring of the production system and a multitude of visualisation and simulation possibilities.
Sensors supply important data and signals for a profitable further processing. During the 3D measurement in a production line, the welded components are measured three-dimensionally and checked for tolerances and completeness. The sensor compares the actual values of the component with the specified set values and informs about deviations. Thus it is possible to take suitable actions for NOI (not in order) parts.
Remote service is the external access to production systems and welding machines for information, maintenance and repair purposes. Due to the global, location-independent maintenance and diagnostics possibilities problems can be solved shortly without a visit of a service technician on-site. Maintenance is easier, the system availability increases and the operating costs are reduced.
The visualisation of data and results of a robot system on screens inform the employees quickly and directly about the current production state, quantities, error messages, cycle times and much more. Furthermore, targets and degrees of target achievement in different production areas can be displayed with graphics and diagrams. As the employees can see their own progress at any time, the visualisation is an important motivating factor.
Augmented Reality means the computer-supported augmentation of the perception of reality. This information can address all human sense modalities. In manufacturing companies, particularly the visual display of additional information such as graphics, pictures or videos offers many possibilities to optimise the production.
In a master user management, all users are administered with individual assignment of rights. The administrator can assign a customised rights package to every user. Here the users of all system are centrally managed and can be processed via the internet. Thus, every user has to remember just one access combination.
With the CLOOS User Management System you have direct access to the robots via Ethernet and TCP/IP. The network variant allows to manage the users on a central PC. In the case of the local variant the user logs in and off directly at the robot via the robot operating software. The recording of all user activities allows a complete documentation.
