Siemens Shows Industry 4.0 'Gateway' App

Tuesday, May 7, 2019

At last month’s AeroDef Manufacturing 2019 in Long Beach, CA, Siemens demonstrated the Manage MyMachines cloud-based platform that enables full data tracking of machine kinematics as well as production data, serving as the initial point-of-entry into the digital world of Industry 4.0.

As a MindApp within the Mindsphere portfolio, Manage MyMachines, as part of the cloud-based, open IoT operating system, allows access to all critical machine tool information, from bearing temperature to production by shift or job, all in a selectable priority scale, based upon user needs. The offering quickly identifies and rectifies unexpected line downtimes and off-normal machine kinematic conditions. Moreover, it enables programming of predictive maintenance to anticipate an upcoming failure, sending alerts to a local distributor, for example, to deliver needed components. Complete asset management is further possible via Manage MyMachines, as resource consumption and energy usage are trackable, all in the cloud and all accessible through the app in real-time.

“This concept will be a gateway to the digital factory for all of our customers in the machine tool industry, including machine builders and end-users no matter their size,” says John Meyer, marketing communications manager, Siemens Motion Control (U.S.).
