Increasing process stability with monitoring and digitisation

The development of process-integrated monitoring methods offers an effective way of detecting, right at the manufacturing stage, quality defects such as upcoming slugs, material cracks, tool or die breakage and feed problems.

Efforts have therefore gone into steady improvements of process-monitoring systems accuracy, tools that together with the forming equipment have to supply increasing flexible responses, so that machine productivity is not reduced by the more-frequent detection of defects.

Multi-level classification procedures are needed to sort defective components or shut down the forming machine in accordance with the nature of the malfunction.
The focus of the current developments on show at Lamiera is the digitisation of process data. Customers have the possibility to seamlessly document their process and carry out downstream analysis with this data. New evaluation algorithms and methods such as our analysis software “Trend Viewer”, offers deeper insights into the processes and allow conclusions to be drawn about their main characteristics.

The exhibition presentation is rounded off with the integration of the monitoring devices into an MES system, which serves as an interface between the production level and the ERP system. In addition, downtimes can thus be precisely analysed and, in the best case, considerably minimised.

We are pleased to be able to show visitors the possibilities of digitalising their processes in addition to the proven quality control offered by the Marposs Brankamp X-series monitoring devices, which supporting also machine adjustment based on measured process data, guarantee optimum process stability.
