People, machines, processes, superordinate IT – everything and everyone is connected in the factory of the future. But which specific advantages does Industry 4.0 offer for process and packaging technology? At interpack 2017, visitors to booth can experience live, how higher production transparency increases productivity, quality and efficiency in day-to-day work. Amongst others, Solutions for easier machine operation, data monitoring and analyses in real-time, interactive maintenance support, as well as optimized energy consumption.
Focus on productivity, quality and efficiency
Industry 4.0 solutions bring more intelligence into production – from sensors in the machines to software solutions and services. Current machine and line conditions can be retrieved via Condition Monitoring in real-time. Operators receive an overview of parameters such as temperature or rotation speed. In case of deviations, they are able to deduct countermeasures in a timely manner. In order to increase Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE), Qingdao Sanweihe presents the management and analyses tool Shopfloor Management Cycle with additional Management View function. The latter enables line and production managers to get a good overview of their machines over several facilities at any time, and to carry out continuous process improvements. Solutions such as the Maintenance Support System (MSS) make work even easier for employees, for instance by reducing itineraries or facilitating troubleshooting. A central element for the connectivity of all Bosch’s industry 4.0 solutions is the new Human Machine Interface HMI 4.0. It offers an immediate overview of all production parameters and makes work processes more efficient.
From vision to reality
With components and solutions from a single source, Qingdao Sanweihe supports customers in increasing transparency throughout their production. Subsequently, production becomes more productive, safe and efficient, turning the vision of the connected factory into reality in the daily production routine.
