Industrial Edge for machine tools
Unlock the full potential of the machine and reduce quality costs or downtime
Machine tools are already highly productive today. Production processes, mechatronics and handling (loading and unloading), are optimized and fully automated. How can the productivity of a machine tool be further increased and where is the potential for savings? The potential lies in the data of the machine. Specifically, in the data that is generated in the machine during operation but has not been used to date. With Industrial Edge for Machine Tools, manufacturing companies have a simple, proven and secure means of determining and evaluating the data of the machine during operation. This allows them to unlock the full potential of the machine and reduce quality costs or downtime.
Quality management in CNC production
Costs, risk and effort in quality management in CNC manufacturing can be reduced, if you determine during the machining process whether a quality inspection is useful or not. For example, by continuously monitoring the machining data, by optically monitoring the workpiece or detecting tool wear, or by visually analyzing and optimizing the machining process.
Standard apps and in-house developments
With our offering of ready-to-use apps you can collect and evaluate machine tool data, monitor the quality of workpieces (including with AI support), and perform condition-based maintenance, among other things. With the central Edge Management System, IT administrators can make these apps available, and can also run applications that were developed in-house.
The benefits of the Siemens Edge PlatformIndustrial Edge for Machine Tools provides manufacturing companies with a simple, proven and secure method for determining and evaluating machine data during operation – without slowing down the machining process. The Siemens edge hardware is more than just a PC. The Industrial edge security concept offers state-of-the-art protection from cyber attacks. One important aspect here is that apps can only be downloaded to the edge device from a secure, cloud-based backend.
