Webinar: Machine Tool 4.0

Available on demand

Machine Tool 4.0, a concept for manufacturers and users of machine tools, has been developed by ifm to facilitate the conversion of sensor data into valuable information. The latter can then be used both in the controller and in the cloud via the so-called Y-path.

This is a concrete step towards digitalised production that also improves the overall equipment efficiency (OEE). By means of condition-based maintenance, also called condition monitoring, the technical condition, e.g. of a machine tool, can be continuously monitored. This helps you to detect signs of potential downtime at an early stage, avoid consequential damage and increase the lifetime of your plant.

IO-Link is used for the intelligent networking of sensors. This includes pressure sensors for hydraulics, RFID for tool identification as well as pressure and flow sensors for part seat monitoring of workpieces. And don't worry, existing sensors can also be easily integrated into the overall system.

Does that sound interesting?
If you ask yourself how to implement a machine tool 4.0, the answer is: with the help of intelligent sensors, networked systems and intuitive software. We will offer a webinar on this topic for anyone interested.

What can participants expect in terms of content?

  • Machine Tool 4.0 - an Introduction to the "communicating machine”
  • Improving the OEE - Overall Equipment Effectiveness
  • Condition-based maintenance by means of systems for vibration monitoring and diagnostics
  • Reliable identification of tool changes with RFID
  • Monitoring the pressure, temperature, fill level and oil quality in hydraulics
  • Systems for part seat monitoring: reliably detecting the part seat of workpieces;
    with live demo
  • World Class Manufacturing: how automotive manufacturers score points and achieve a better status with the help of ifm
  • Application example: CERI machining

Which audience does the event address?

The seminar primarily addresses people from maintenance, project planning, electrical planning, quality assurance and mechanical engineering. Those interested from other areas are also welcome.
