The topic Industry 4.0 continues to dominate machine tool building right through into the new year, with DMG MORI developing with ever growing momentum into a turnkey partner. CELOS, for example, offers a modular 360° solution portfolio for integrated digitization of a factory – of machines, processes and services.
“Digital Tooling“2 is another workflow package. All tool information needed for the production process can be managed centrally with this CELOS APP package: NC programming and simulation as well as tooling, scanning and loading, whereby different systems can access the tool data simultaneously. In addition, all process-related data are stored in a central tool management database, ensuring a transparent and seamless tool history.
2 Digital Tooling realizes integral tool management and includes the CELOS APPs Tool Handling, Tool Agent and Tool Analyzer.
To provide more transparency in production, the APP Package “Digital Monitoring”3 visualizes all key information of the digital factory. The CELOS APP Condition Analyzer offers the capture, storage, analysis and visualization of machine sensor data. The CELOS APP then enables subsequent analysis of several machines, e.g. for early recognition of machine failures. The Performance Monitor also visualizes current machine availability and efficiency independently of location. In this way the CELOS APP creates transparency and control possibilities with regard to basic manufacturing parameters – so-called Key Performance Indicators (KPIs).
There are also a number of expansion options. With CELOS PROtab, DMG MORI brings a mobile assistant into networked production. DMG MORI customers will in future also use CELOS functions on older machines and machines from other manufacturers with the aid of this industrial standard. In addition, live images can be imported into chat conferences with the new serviceCAM in combination with the NETSERVICE 4.0 APP.
3Digital Monitoring visualizes all relevant process and machine information of a digital factory and can include the following CELOS APPs: Messenger, Condition Analyzer and Performance Monitor. Data from the APPs Production Planning and Tool Analyzer can also be visualized and the APP Cockpit can be used as the visualization screen (dashboard) for all the APPs mentioned.
CELOS COCKPIT is the bridge between all machines in the production environment. This is where all shop floor-relevant information comes together, from both DMG MORI machines as well as third-party machines. It provides users with a holistic overview of the status on the shop floor – and, with the respective digital workflows from DMG MORI, even information about orders and failures (including bottlenecks, idle periods, causes and remaining runtimes).
As of April 2018, all DMG MORI machines with SIEMENS, HEIDENHAIN and MAPPS controls (except the SLIMline machines) will be available with CELOS version 5.0. Existing machines with older CELOS versions can be upgraded to the latest software standard.
The update to CELOS Version 5.0 is carried out by DMG MORI Service using an update stick. Data and communication settings remain intact. Every customer receives basic training in the new features when the new version is put into operation.
DMG MORI has implemented a key element of the CELOS digital factory with its digitization of the shop floor. To further expand digitization, DMG MORI has established the IIoT initiative ADAMOS in collaboration with partners from the fields of machine building and IT.
“ADAMOS is an important part of our “Path of Digitization”, because it allows us even greater freedom to determine and actively shape digitization ourselves”, is how Dr.Rudzio explains the strategic importance of the IIoT initiative.
He compares the baseline situation with that of the PC world: “Where “Intel inside” is involved, we have ADAMOS – and where Windows operates on computers, we install CELOS.” DMG MORI is working with strong partners, such as Dürr, Zeiss, ASM, Engel and Software AG in the ADAMOS initiative, with more partners to follow.
DMG MORI started off with a CELOS APPbased control and operating system. It is already possible to plan and visualize databased processes completely from end to end in a factory with CELOS manufacturing. Thanks to ADAMOS, CELOS can now be developed into an open network and digital marketplace for the machine building industry. Dr. Rudzio sums up: “We can now offer our customers digital services for all aspects of machines, we can digitize the entire production process chain and, thanks to ADAMOS, we can successfully design the processes for our customers integrally from end to end with a 360° approach!”
