Impulse - the ifm show for you

Experience automation in an unprecedented form. The ifm show Impulse highlights the most important trends and topics in automation. We talk about industry-specific challenges and present answers – from innovative products to holistic solutions. While also showing a series of successful automation examples from the real world, we let both our experts and our customers have their say in equal measure.

Information meets inspiration - welcome to Impulse!

Mobile machines: Comprehensive solutions for the 4.0 age

Mobile machines have specific requirements regarding automation and digitalisation. In the current edition of Impulse – the ifm magazine we talk to experts about why good hardware and software is not everything. We also venture a glimpse into the networked 4.0 future – and demonstrate how the advantages of this future can already be used today.

Water: Digitalisation solutions for industrial treatment

Along the water cycle, many different participants extract the precious resource - and place different requirements on its quality and purity. In the current episode of Impulse - the ifm magazine we focus on industrial water treatment.

Intralogistics: solutions for efficient internal commodity flows.

The more reliable the intralogistics processes, the more solid the customer satisfaction. After all, the time from order receipt to customer delivery can only be minimised if integrated, reliable and efficient internal processes are in place.

Error proofing: reliably ensure product quality in every stage of the process

The value of an end product is determined along the entire value-added process: the quality of every component, every manufacturing process and every assembly step affects the final result. In the current edition of “Impulse – the ifm magazine” we show you the challenges in automated and manual processes and the solutions ifm offers. Using the example of a component, the path of the product is traced from production through product control to quality assurance prior to shipping.

Food: Automation solutions for reliable, efficient processes

In food production in particular, it is essential to efficiently use the raw materials obtained. ‘Impulse - the ifm magazine’ illustrates the path from raw material to final product, with this episode focusing specifically on safe processing of dairy products.

Digitalisation: How can the industrial evolution be mastered simply and effectively?

How does the data find its way from sensor to IT level? And why is further data usage worthwhile? ‘Impulse - the ifm magazine’ talks to digitalisation experts and to customers who are already benefiting from the extra information today - and who in turn are allowing customers to benefit from it.

Automation solutions for the beverage and food industry

Highest process reliability and consistently high product quality are the maxims in the food industry - whether in beverage production, confectionery production, dairy or meat processing. Even slight contamination of a product leads to high damage, be it the recall of an entire batch or a costly production shutdown. In this programme, we will address ifm's range, which has been specially developed for the food industry, and show in best practice examples from Refresco and Tetra Pak how important automation is.

Vision sensors in industrial manufacturing

In automation technology, vision sensors are now an integral part of assembly, manufacturing and quality control and, last but not least, a means of increasing efficiency. They are cameras with application-specific evaluation, i.e. reliable electronic eyes, with low price and high degree of integration. Today in our TV show we present you what this can look like in practice in the automotive industry.

Water management: Challenges and solutions

Exciting TV show with a focus on automation in water filtration systems. Here we answer the questions how important intelligent automation can be in such systems when it comes to such a precious resource as water. Therefore we invite guests to the studio who can illuminate both sides, both the technical side and the view of our customer "NEREUS".

moneo: Getting successfully started with the industrial evolution

As an IIoT platform, ifm moneo connects the level of Operation Technology with the level of information technology. The sensor data generated in the production facilities can be easily read out and processed and used as a basis for sustainable business decisions. In this TV show we present to you how important the right "tool" is and how simple and fast moneo really is.
