Baumüller, the automation expert from Nuremberg, is presenting its exhibits – Intelligent Components and System solutions for Digitisation and Networking – for its main theme "Enabling Industry 4.0" at SPS IPC Drives in hall 1 at booth 560 from November 28 to 30, 2017.
Motors, Mobile Drives, Drive Electronics, Decentralised Drives
Intelligent drive and automation systems
The trade fair visitors will be able to see how Baumüller makes the smart digitisation and networking of machines and systems possible for its customers with intelligent components and solutions, thus creating the successful connections and interfaces for Industry 4.0.
At the trade fair stand, Baumüller will show how Industry 4.0 generates added benefits through increased efficiency for the mechanical engineer in every phase of the value added chain. This allows the customers to develop new or expanded business models throughout the entire machine life cycle, starting with the project planning and engineering, to the commissioning and operation, to the service of the machines and systems.
Baumüller offers simulations for machine designs, Wizard-guided commissioning, secure remote maintenance as well as an integrated system for predictive maintenance and production optimisation for this purpose. These solutions will be presented live at the Baumüller trade fair stand.
Simulation for a quick and safe market launch
Making machines and systems future-proof and tailor-made to applications requires time and experience and is an intensive engineering process. In order to shorten the development time and to launch the functionally-reliable machine on the market as quickly as possible, Baumüller works with simulations, such as MATLAB/Simulink. At the trade fair stand, Baumüller will use the example of automatisation solutions for servo pumps and servo presses to show how simulation can be used to design and test the optimal drive and automatization components for different machines in the shortest of time. The data from these models is provided to the mechanical engineer in the project planning phase for the new machine. Alternatively, Baumüller takes care of the entire machine design for its customers, such as for presses, based on the model data from the mechanical engineer.
Once the machine is then planned specifically for the customer, it must undergo the practical test. Baumüller experts also work with simulations to optimize the application to be able to assess the interaction of the individual machine components in advance. In addition to significantly shortened development times, the customer also benefits from a faster and easier commissioning.
