Together with the GF Machining Solutions development team, bbv developed the “Process Inspector” from the edge modules to the cloud backend and storage as well as the web frontend to the integration in the Digital Hub.
The Process Inspector visualises the machining process of a workpiece in 2D and 3D. The signal data is displayed in colour. This makes it possible to mark deviations, which offers added value for the operator/machine operator. Especially for the operation of the complex machines and the highly precise and demanding machining process, the recording of the data helps with error analysis and to increase quality.
With the IoT solution, an enormous amount of data is bundled and visualised: Depending on the machine type, several dozen signal values are sampled at 100-millisecond intervals. For one job, several million measured values are thus stored per hour.
This is where Georg Fischer Machining Solutions’ spark-track technology comes into play, a revolution in EDM technology that can reliably detect the discharge location in wire EDM.
