Absolute Machine Tools is proud to participate in an IMTS 2018 demo of the Siemens’ MindSphere, the cloud-based open Internet of Things (IOT) operating system from Siemens, enables industrial manufacturers to link their machines and physical infrastructure to the digital world easily, quickly and economically. They can harness data from virtually any number of intelligent connected devices, enterprise systems and databases to analyze and uncover transformational insights, enhance their offerings and launch new business models.
Stop by Booth #338536 to see the Mindsphere demonstrated on our LNDD 65D-S3 Twin Spindle Multi-Slide Mill/Turn Center with 8 Position Live Tool Turret & Y-Axis and Siemens 840D-SL Control!
The Mindsphere: Integrating Smart Factory IIoT Solutions for Endcustomers
How can we help our customers to digitally transform into the world of IIoT? The answer is in the cloud:
- Optimize asset utilization to deliver maximum uptime and availability
- Increase maintenance efficiencies, implementing predictive maintenance practices
- Boost operational visibility with condition-based monitoring
- Leverage data transparency and centralized key performance indicators (KPIs) for greater operational insights and accountability
- Make possible new machine capabilities, combining data analytics and asset fleet monitoring
The trend toward digitalization of the world’s industrial plant facilities is unstoppable. First, operators simply have no choice but to modernize rapidly aging infrastructure if they are to stay profitable and competitive. Not only are the operational costs of outdated machinery mounting in terms of more frequent maintenance, repairs, onsite replacements and hard-to-find spares, but also the engineering and maintenance know-how is quickly retiring – the “grey tsunami,” as it’s called. What’s more, there are opportunity costs associated with using old machines when newer ones can do the work faster, better, cheaper and, in many cases, with a smaller footprint.
Second, the ability to mine data from the IIoT for quantum gains in operational transparency and productivity is now practical and economical for all sizes of plant operators. That’s especially true given a quick and easy, pay-as-you-go cloud model, such as what the Siemens’ MindSphere cloud-based, open IoT operating system offers. And, with this model, they can gain IIoT capabilities, while eliminating the capital and maintenance expenses that hardware infrastructures require, making sure security and upgrades are always done, and gaining a flexible, usage-based cost model.
