Ma­chin­ery and plants as well as pro­duc­tion processes gen­er­ate a con­tin­ual flow of data. Com­pa­nies that are able to gen­er­ate added value from this data will be able to enjoy suc­cess in the fu­ture. How­ever, the large amount of gen­er­ated data must be eas­ily ac­ces­si­ble to the ma­chine op­er­a­tor via a HMI (Human Ma­chine In­ter­face). With the u-cre­ate PRO­CON-WEB SCADA soft­ware tool and PRO­CON-WEB Em­bed­ded Sys­tem, Weidmüller pro­vides vi­su­al­i­sa­tion so­lu­tions with...

At the edge, the use of GPU-based sys­tems for AI com­put­ing is usu­ally not prac­ti­cal due to the phys­i­cal size of the in­fer­ence sys­tem, the high-power con­sump­tion and the un­favourable price-per­for­mance ratio. The Mus­tang AI ac­cel­er­a­tor card se­ries from ICP Ger­many of­fers new so­lu­tions for edge com­put­ing in the field of Ar­ti­fi­cial In­tel­li­gence of Things (AIoT).

Wearables from ProGlove make humans a driving force of Industry 4.0 and digital transformation. The Digital Twin is a digitized model that maps the physical characteristics of a production environment as well as the processes. But this mapping has its limitations, as it only includes data from machines and not from humans. At the same time, human employees will continue to play an important role in the Fourth Industrial Revolution, also known as Industry 4.0. The challenge lies in combining the...

Automation processes in the industrial sector are becoming faster, more efficient, and more intelligent with the development of new technologies. But the things which add value to companies in this industry often present challenges for the internal employees who need to oversee, monitor, manage, develop, or repair these automated and fully optimized processes. With Augmented Reality (AR), workers can be effectively supported along the entire value chain to ensure the best possible human-machine...

Industry 4.0 – the smart, adaptive factory with short retooling times and decentralized control – aims to generate the most comprehensive data possible within a highly automated process in real-time and provide the most varied instances possible. This status information in the form of process data for control and monitoring of sequences and product data for traceability and quality verification form an objective basis for making decisions in order to take early measures for process optimization.

It started with a blank. But how does the workpiece get onto the line or into the machine? Depending on the state it is delivered in, this task can quickly become very complex. Reliable 3D object detection systems optically capture and evaluate data. Liebherr works with a variety of 3D vision systems to match the requirements and smoothly handles the supply of every haphazardly stored part with process precision.

The verification of barcodes helps ensuring the readability of the barcode throughout the complete supply chain. Barcode verification is the process of grading the quality of barcodes. A barcode verifier assigns an overall grade to a code based on measurements of several quality parameters. Depending on the code type they apply different national and international standards.
