RFID is key in auto identification technologies In the course of the evolving digitalization, industrial companies automate more and more manual processes. Consequently, they transfer paper-based tasks in the field of identification to digital solutions. So, one important enabling technology is radio frequency identification (RFID). Since this technology is mature,Read more
In Metalworking a significant part of the products are realized by forming and stamping processes, especially for series applications. The monitoring technology for press control has achieved a remarkable progress within the last years.
Optimized cycle rates lead to increased productivity and output. At the same time, there is a rising risk of asset damage, especially if unexpected errors occur. Automated protection of the tools and dies helps to increase OEE. Sensors for process monitoring are key elements.Read more
