C.T.B. deals with national and international printed circuit boards for mono-bi-multi-layer electronics. The goal of C.T.B. is to interconnect machinery and become Industry 4.0, to be more efficient, competitive and respond to the challenges of the ever-changing market.
The challenge is to interconnect machines of very different types (drilling machines, surface processing machinery, galvanic plant) with the management system and the company MES. The goal is to automate data collection, to track downtimes and to know the cost associated with each batch.
We also want to take advantage of the opportunity offered by the Italian Business Plan 4.0, which offers State incentives to promote the technological innovation of the country: further objective to be achieved is, therefore, compliance with the requirements of the legislature in this regard.
To meet the needs of C.T.B., we used our software for Industry 4.0: iDaq, Digital Factory 4.0 and Lilium, achieving the objectives with a complete and scalable solution in a short time.
iDaq is used to communicate directly with the machines (drilling machines, surface processing machinery, galvanic plant) through Ethernet/IP protocol and through other dedicated protocols.
iDaq collects the main production data, such as:
Digital Factory 4.0 provides a global view of the plant and forwards the parameters of the batch to be performed on the machine on the basis of what the operator has chosen from the MES.
Lilium deals with the transfer of data to the company database, from which the MES extrapolates the information for viewing and archiving, and the transfer of data from the database to Digital Factory 4.0 and iDaq.
