Machine maintenance with standardized live data

How Industry 4.0 works in practice is demonstrated by SCHUNK GmbH & Co. KG from Lauffen am Neckar, Germany. The global competence leader for gripping systems and clamping technology has used the networking technology from ADAMOS to integrally combine its production, which is connected via Cybus, with the maintenance and servicing software from WERKBLiQ, thus achieving an enormous gain in performance.

    “For us, this project was another step towards making production more efficient and also more intelligent. It was particularly important to us that we remain strategically and technologically independent. 

    It will be exciting when we connect even more solutions via this approach. We are already testing the first apps here with ADAMOS. It is all the more pleasing that a reference case has emerged from which others can also benefit.”

    Steffen Gotzmann – Production Manager,
    SCHUNK GmbH & Co. KG 

    “Our maintenance solution helps companies like SCHUNK organise and manage maintenance and object management optimally. Thanks to the interaction of Cybus, ADAMOS and WERKBLiQ, SCHUNK will be able to use current machine status data without effort in the future and initialise maintenance in advance via WERKBLiQ – without the need for manual intervention by employees.”

    Shop floor integration

    Collect, standardize, process and distribute

    Cybus Connectware not only collects data, but also standardizes it to a common language, preprocesses it according to your requirements and distributes it to any system, application or cloud. As a result, you can instantly display your data on the dashboards, perform advanced analytics or machine learning.

    What are the results?

    Using real-time data for applications via the ADAMOS HUB

    Instead of finding an individual solution for each customer on the store floor, networking is done via the ADAMOS HUB. Using this advanced networking technology, Cybus Connectware was able to make the real-time data available to the ADAMOS HUB after only a few days of integration. The data is made available to the so-called “SCHUNK client” in the ADAMOS HUB and SCHUNK itself decides whether and how the data should be made available to the WERKBLiQ application. WERKBLiQ, in turn, can then process this data and provide the desired use case for the client. And vice versa. This principle also works for any other application from the ADAMOS STORE.
