FÖHL CHINA ON THE PATH
TO INTELLIGENT AND FLEXIBLE PRODUCTION
December 14, 2017
Industry 4.0 – this catchword describes the interplay between production and state-of-the-art information and communication technology. The driving power behind this development is the rapidly increasing digitization of economics and society. It is forever changing the way in which production and processing will continue in the future.
Föhl China has taken a huge step forwards along this path: A casting machine was currently put into operation here that not only satisfied the highest requirements but is also equipped with a real-time control system that guarantees complete data transparency along the entire process.
But what is real-time controlling in this case? During production, dynamic movements and injection pressure can be constantly measured. If there is a deviation that has not been programmed, the machine automatically re-adjusts.
Some of the advantages include:
- Some of the advantages include:
- Part optimization with shorter filling times
- Higher replicability
- Higher density and greater tensile strength
- Reduction of pressure peaks
- Longer service life of tools and machines
- Best possible quality and precision
