Machine Manager: Data Flow Redefined

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

With Industry 4.0 in sight, SIGMATEK favors modular, decentralized automation solutions. Small mechatronic units with their own processing intelligence are networked with one another in a flexible complete system. The system configuration can therewith be customer-specifically assembled and expanded at any time with optional function units, such as a handling robot.

To perfectly reproduce this intelligent modularity in the software, a new tool is available in the object-oriented design environment LASAL: the Machine Manager. It enables the clearly organized display of individual software projects in a machine or system and regulates the communication of distributed intelligences in multi-CPU applications. Projects, which provide data are connected to the projects that should or can use the respective data. Data exchange with external system components and higher-level software can also be implemented with the help of the LASAL Machine Manager. This reduces the work for initial start-up, handling and maintenance, as well as simplifies the implementation of adaptive production strategies.
