Interconnect for Industry 4.0 Plan with comprehensive, easy-to-use and scalable software solution

 

 

The challenge

Flexamek is a company that deals with providing customized precision mechanics products at the request of the customer.

It is a company that is very active in finding innovative solutions to satisfy its customers with high quality products.

Flexamek's need is to automate data collection in the production department by interconnecting the Mazak machinery, which will then undergo expertise to benefit from the tax incentives offered by the State Plan Industry 4.0, to the company database to know the status of the machinery, the active program and the positioning of the axes.

TOOLS for SMART MINDS is required for the agile data exchange part, such as collection, instant analysis of data from the machinery, automatic transfer from the machinery to the company database.

 

The Solution

T4SM was able to meet Flexamek's needs in a short time with the proposal of a scalable, complete and customized 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 receives, analyzes and transfers data from the machinery to the company database in a few seconds.

Thanks to its high-performance functions of constant data traceability and advanced diagnostics, all the operating parameters available from the machinery are controlled and processed in real-time and, in case an anomaly is detected, users are informed of the situation in order to promptly intervene on the problem and solve it. This allows the company to choose the best working strategy to increase the performance of its production.

Digital Factory 4.0 allows simple and intuitive visualization of the production plant in real-time. With the intelligent versatility offered by the platform, Flexamek achieves even faster communication between machinery and the company database.

Production Controller Lite allows to easily manage the workflow of the entire company: with a single solution, it is possible to create new batches and visualize the progress of the started batches on the operator panel of the machine.
