Ever-shortening product life cycles, the trend towards automation and development leaps in the field of peripherals lead to individual processes as well as entire machine and system concepts being made available today much earlier than was the case a few years ago. In order to keep up with the market, the equipment in particular offers…
The digitally connected factory is rapidly becoming a reality, thanks to huge leaps in affordable data handling capabilities. As more machines begin to communicate with each other, production efficiency goes up. Add the ability of analytic tools to predict maintenance needs, and productivity improves even more.
Machine tools for efficient and precise 5-axis machining, system solutions for automation and digital options for production optimization are the focus of CHIRON’s trade fair presence in 2017. In hall 12, stand C04, the company will be exhibiting as CHIRON Group together with STAMA, SCHERER Feinbau and the retrofit specialist CMS.
Electromobility and Industry 4.0 – these industrial megatrends are featured prominently in the EMAG Group booth at the EMO in Hanover from September 18 to 23 this year. Throughout the show, EMAG machine manufacturers will demonstrate their role as “facilitators” of technological change. For example, they have complete solutions available for the efficient production of central components of electric drive systems. Exhibition visitors will see several high-performance machines in operation – including world-firsts in the areas of turning operation, laser welding/joining and gear cutting. At the same time, the EMAG Group is also accelerating the digitalization of its production technology to establish intelligent factories. Therefore, the EMO will have a dedicated area where customers can test essential Industry 4.0 solutions. A main focus is the consistent usability of the software, which will continue to simplify the control, monitoring and analysis of production.
From 18th – 23rd September we will be again in: “Hall 2, North Entrance.” On an exhibition area of approximately 10,000 square metres DMG MORI will be showcasing around 80 high-tech machines at the EMO 2017 to demonstrate its latest innovations and integral technology solutions – right through to the digital factory.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is not a fad. Research provider BI Intelligence predicts the number of IoT devices connected to the Internet will more than triple by 2020, from 10 billion to 34 billion. Networking computers, devices and machines to collect and share data is transforming many industries, including manufacturing where it can help lower operating costs, decrease machine downtime and increase overall productivity. To realize the full benefits, however, manufacturers must view the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) like Lean Manufacturing – a long term initiative that creates an avenue for continual improvement and innovation.
