Eberle at the Most Successful SPS IPC Drives Ever

The SPS IPC Drives Nürnberg 2017 was “the largest SPS IPC Drives of all time with 70,000 trade visitors”, as summed up by the exhibition’s organizer Mesago. We were part of the action as a Gold partner and co-exhibitor of Microsoft.

The desire of trade fair visitors for networked solutions in automation technology, as made possible by the Mobile Control Center  was noticeable.

In Hall 6, which was thematically reoriented with a focus on software and IT in production, Eberle Automatische Systeme presented a consistently networked industrial solution using a bin-picking robot. The practical example showed the mode of operation between real technology, the digital twin and an industrial cloud solution such as the Mobile Control Center.

We would like to thank our visitors for their lively interest, their enthusiasm and the interesting impulses.


Eberle Automatische Systeme at the German Partner Conference in Leipzig

At this year’s partner conference in Leipzig, Microsoft particularly focused on the subject of digital transformation. Microsoft partners presented their solutions under the motto “IoT in Action”.

Eberle Automatische Systeme was there to present an autonomous automated guided vehicle (AGV). The system works with digitally networked and autonomously navigating transport robots. Such automated transport solutions can be implemented in intralogistics through the interplay of various technologies.

AGV allows transport robots to navigate across structural obstacles. For example, elevators and doors can be overcome and linked to the common business processes such as warehouse management and the ERP system through a digital interface.

The IoT solutions were a contact point for all those particularly interested in technology and brought many new impulses on both sides.


Four-Country Supplier Exchange 2017

On June 8, 2017, the Four-Country Supplier Exchange took place at the Dornbirn exhibition center, an innovative platform to get to know technologies, products and expertise of regional and supraregional suppliers.

The  third edition of this supplier’s exchange featured exhibitors from the sectors of mechatronics, electronics, metal and plastic processing. We particularly addressed our solutions for industry 4.0:

MCC as an IoT platform and web-based process monitoring:

With our Mobile Control Center – MCC we presented how data can be gathered from machines and systems via data mining, and distributed via an IoT platform.

Solutions for the use of autonomously navigating transport robots:

Intelligent driverless transport systems are able to automate internal logistics. We demonstrated the integration of such solutions into existing structures. Practical examples illustrated how obstacles, for example elevators or doors, can be overcome.

Possible Applications for Virtual Start-Up on a Digital Twin

Virtual commissioning saves time and reduces the overall cost of commissioning machines. Our Virtual 3D System – V3S allows the creation of a fully functional digital twin of the real machine.

Augmented reality in industry

Using HoloLens data glasses, we showed application examples from the field of Augmented Reality.

 

We would like to thank our visitors for the interesting interactions.
