The basic prerequisites for a stable injection molding process with varying environmental conditions and equipment are precise, absolutely repeatable and adaptive injection molding machines and auxiliaries.
Up to now, the “Industrial Internet of Things” (IIoT) stopped at the level of the machines. The WITTMANN Group is the first and currently the only company worldwide which can also collect data correctly from connected auxiliaries and cope with the complexity of changing workcells and automatic compilation of valid data sets.
The aim is to have a machine and auxiliaries with maximum uptime. This includes fast and safe mold change, as well as continuous condition monitoring to detect anomalies. However, if support from the WITTMANN Group should still be required, it can be secured via remote servicing.
The traditional domain of Industry 4.0 is the integration of the machines and workcells into superordinate software packages such as ERP and MES. This not only enables production planning and monitoring, but also data collection for the traceability of production parameters.
