IMT Armaturen has been a leader in specialty valves and heating equipment for over 40 years.
The need is to automate data collection in the production department. It is essential to interconnect the new generation Gnutti machinery and expertise to allow IMT Armaturen to benefit from the tax incentives offered by the Italian National Industry 4.0 Plan, with the PC in the offices to know the status and alarms of the machinery, the number of good and rejected parts.
TOOLS for SMART MINDS is required for the data exchange part, such as collection, instant analysis of data from the machinery, automatic transfer from the machinery to the company server and vice versa.
Gnutti machinery - IMT Armaturen
T4SM was able to meet IMT Armaturen's needs by proposing a complete, customized and modular solution.

Softwares developed for Industry 4.0 and tested for a long time at T4SM are installed at the company and they make the work of the whole company more efficient.
All the proposed solutions, developed for Industry 4.0 and long tested in T4SM, make the work of the entire company more efficient.
iDaq automatically acquires, processes, records and analyzes data from the machine to the PC within seconds.
With its innovative functions of constant data traceability and advanced diagnostics, every operating parameters are available from the machinery and are controlled in real-time. If iDaq find an anomaly, it inform to users of the situation in order to be able to intervene promptly on the problem and solve it. Thanks to these two fundamental functions, the company chooses the best working strategy to increase the performance of its production.
Digital Factory 4.0 is a simple and intuitive platform for real-time visualization of the production plant. Not only that, but it facilitates the work of all the staff and makes even more efficient the communication between the Gnutti machinery, the operator panel on board the machine and the PC in the offices.
Production Controller Lite allows to easily manage the workflow of the entire company: with a single solution you can create new batches and view the progress of the batches started on the operator panel of the machine.
By implementing T4SM solutions, all objectives were met allowing IMT Armaturen to achieve significant benefits:

" For more than twenty years we have strategically decided to try to combine innovation and quality as much as possible, both from a design and a technical production point of view. The choice to collaborate with T4SM has allowed us to keep faith with our guidelines and to improve significantly from a management/data acquisition point of view. Competence and availability are the key words if you want to describe T4SM and the collaborators that are part of it."
Based on a system consisting of highly modular software solutions for Industry 4.0 that allow interconnection with the company's MES. Thanks to Part Program Manager it is possible to manage all the processing configurations differentiated by machine and by article.
In addition, Production Controller Lite has been implemented for easy management of the flow of orders.
