From primitive machines to digital production with VBASE Smart Production Systems
With VBASE new but also outdated machines and plants are being updated and fit for digital production. Thanks to a variety of integrated MES functions, any plant or machine gets „smart“ due to the integration of a VBASE-based system
Important production data are determined directly at the machine, displayed to the operator on-site and transferred to higher-level systems (e.g., ERP, VBASE MES). Optionally, production plans, part lists or recipes (for example, from the work preparation) can be referred to the machine.
A common example from practice
A simple machine that is used in mass production only provides one switch „Start / Stop“. If for example a VBASE HMI panel is used, an intelligent machine is created with the help of only a few signals and the use of the integrated software modules.
