Complete data collection – The basis for Industry 4.0

Complete data collection – The basis for Industry 4.0

Complete data collection and evaluation form the basis for Industry 4.0, where processes can be controlled more efficiently and faster through networking and data that can be accessed anywhere. Industry 4.0 also means that systems, people, logistics and products communicate with one another. IMV’s ECO-Shaker offers a vibration testing system, which can be managed and monitored on your browser via different devices (PC, tablet or smartphone). The ECO-Shaker therefore fulfils several prerequisites simultaneously:

  • Complete data collection
  • Simple documentation through data collection in real time
  • Troubleshooting shows status in realtime
  • Less downtime
  • remote monitoring

Automated data collection, less downtime and simple error diagnosis

The basis for modern processes is made up of automated and digital data collection. To optimise the load and minimise downtime, a system must continually deliver and save data. This is the only way to plan processes better in the future. If there is a problem, time should not have to be spent on error diagnosis first. Having concrete data and knowing the time expenditure of past test procedures allow future test series to be better planned, and test equipment usage can be clocked more efficiently.

Data must always be retrievable and easy to interpret.

The ECO-Shaker allows employees to quickly and easily retrieve the information they need at any time. It is therefore particularly important that information can also be retrieved and interpreted by every user.

It is therefore essential that the process is as simple and comprehensible as possible. The browser-based user interface of the IMV vibration test systems provide all participants flexble data access. This enables test procedures to be compared even if different users or locations are involved.

Systems and machines are also taking on an increasing number of tasks. For example, the ECO-Shaker recognises when something is wrong and tells the user. The user only has to enter their technical requirements. This has the advantage, for example, that maintenance does not necessarily have to be carried out when a certain interval has been reached, but when the system has reached a defined level of wear based on certain system parameters.
