This section is an overview over the various showcases that we already did. It provides for every showcase a quick summary including a picture. More details can be found in the subsequent documents.

Metalworking industry

Flame cutting & blasting

Retrofitting of 11 flame cutting machines and blasting systems at two locations using sensors, barcode scanners and button bars to extract and analyze operating data.

See also the detailed documentation.

Identification of the optimization potential of two CNC milling machines

Two-month analysis of CNC milling machines and identification of optimization potentials. Automatic data acquisition coupled with interviews of machine operators and shift supervisors revealed various optimization potentials.

See also the detailed documentation.

Textile industry

Cycle time monitoring

See also the detailed documentation.

Retrofitting of weaving machines for OEE calculation

Retrofitting of weaving machines that do not provide data via the PLC to extract operating data. Subsequent determination of the OEE and detailed breakdown of the individual key figures

Filling & packaging industry

Performance management in a brewery

Retrofit of a bottling line for different beer types. Focus on the identification of microstops causes and exact delimitation of the bottleneck machine.

See also the detailed documentation.

Retrofit of a Japanese pharmaceutical packaging line

Retrofit of a Japanese pharmaceutical packaging line for automatic analysis of microstop causes as well as to relief the machine operators of data recording.
