Factory Automation

No process optimisation without process data!
To optimise automation processes in a sustainable way, at first their weak points must be detected: A challenge for modern measurement technology. Increasing the machine load factor, reducing defective goods, reliable tolerance measurement, 100 % quality control, preventive error and wear detection are some of the optimisations that can be realised with the highly-precise intelligent measurement systems by ADDI-DATA!

Product applications for the factory automation sector

Regulation of the acquisition speed

Factory Automation

Challenge

In a measurement device, inductive displacement transducers are acquired simultaneously and the measurement values are processed with a PLC. From time to time, the measurement values show extreme fluctuations which causes a rise in rejects. The manual re-measurement of the rejects establishes that most of the rejects were not actually rejects. An exact analysis brought forward the reason: Forklift truck traffic passing close to the machine created vibrations that caused pseudo rejects.

Position acquisition in a welding process

Factory Automation

Challenge

For the construction of glass components two parts are welded with hot air. As the material is very fragile the welding process must be carried out very carefully and precisely (1 ┬Ám) despite of the speed in order to avoid the breaking of the parts.
Furthermore it must be made sure that the glass components are close enough to guarantee a good quality of the weld seam. Thus the position of the component shall be acquired in intervals of 200 ms.
