New to Industry 4.0

May 12, 2020
At HMI2020, Pepperl+Fuchs will be presenting a whole range of examples and of approaches to the successful implementation of digital transformation.

Pixel-Plus combines data streams from multidimensional time-of-flight sensors with signals from high-resolution color cameras, creating digital representations of real objects. These "digital twins" offer a much higher level of information than solely camera- or sensor-based systems.

Together with the Linz Center of Mechatronics (LCM), an innovative digital approach to hydraulic sintering presses that will achieve significant energy savings is being presented. In addition, cloud networking makes sensor data available regardless of location and thus enables effective status monitoring to optimize maintenance operations centrally and prevent unplanned downtimes.

The joint venture 3D.aero, operated in conjunction with Lufthansa-Technik, will demonstrate high- performance 3-D inspection of aerospace components. Because of the sheer size of the objects tested, the highly precise measuring technology goes to the object rather than the other way around.

The ICE3 IO-Link master module comes with an integrated OPC UA server as a unique selling point. This enables end-to-end communication to be established from the sensor/actuator level to cloud structures via the standard protocol for Industry 4.0. The MultiLink technology offers a second data path, which is available parallel to real-time critical communication at the control level.
