Bystronic and Lantek are developing an MES software solution for sheet metal parts production. The Bystronic MES interlinks all the manufacturing steps and guides sheet metal products on the ideal path through the production process.
“Industrial production is on the verge of a fundamental change,” underlined Dr. Markus Klaiber, Chief Technology Officer/CTO of SCHUNK GmbH & Co. KG in Lauffen, Germany with a view to EMO 2017. “In the years ahead, the digitalization, use of mechatronic products, and automation of production processes, collaboration between humans and robots as well as intelligent networking of all process-relevant components will promote a new concept of industrial production.”
With TruConnect, at the Euroblech 2016, TRUMPF is showcasing innovative solutions on the way to Industry 4.0 in the field of sheet metal processing. The concept for networked production links machines, people and information – for example, via the new data output interface Central Link. At the TRUMPF booth, TruConnect is omnipresent: the machines are equipped with smart features, and consulting and software offerings are a recurrent theme throughout.
