  1. Intelligence boost for classic machine tools

    DATAEAGLE Condition Monitoring System
    • Condition Monitoring; Wireless PROFINET; perform the CM retrofit
    • Case study businesses
    • News GERMANY
    • Machine

    Machine tools play a central role in the production of Fig.1: Productionlineparts for the automotive industry, with hundreds of machines of different age and manufacturers often being installed in one production hall. In addition to modern machines with already integrated sensor technology, there are also classic machines whose operating status is still monitored by electromechanical modules. In the course of Industrie 4.0, operators are now increasingly looking to retrofit those machines with intelligent sensor systems including data communication, thus creating the prerequisites for efficient condition monitoring.
