For the SPS IPC Drives trade fair, ProCom presents its hardware and software solution for laser, knife-edge, plasma, and waterjet cutting machines. The solution consists of drives, a CNC controller, software, and an IoT component. With this complete package, manufacturers can increase the utility of their machines and provide end customers with additional services such as predictive maintenance, analysis of the machine fleet, and recommendations for measures to increase productivity. Development teams can benefit from the ProCom solution, as the monitoring of prototypes during field testing can be improved and user behavior analyzed in greater detail.
Main components of the solution are the CNC300ECO controller and an intuitive software package optimized for diverse cutting processes, especially laser cutting, and the Clouver cloud-based Industry 4.0 solution. The latter links up the production process with its digital image providing the transparency required for business models such as “pay per use”.
Visitors can experience the interaction of the controller, software, and Clouver at the ProCom stand (Hall 6, Booth 6-150H) while applying their data. Anyone who brings a DXF file can follow via Webcam as a 2D portal machine in Aachen runs through the required movements with a laser pointer. Clouver consecutively evaluates the process and provides key parameters and statistics needed for greater productivity, longer machine service life, and state-based maintenance.
