Baumüller at Hannover Messe 2017
The Nuremberg-based automatization expert Baumüller will be displaying its exhibits in line with the guiding theme of the trade fair "Integrated Industry - Creating Value" at the Hanover Trade Fair from April 24-28, 2017 in hall 14, stand H12. The visitors will experience the added value of Industry 4.0 solutions based on numerous features for smart production: from an integrated system for predictive maintenance to the web-capable visualization for quick commissioning and flexible adaptations in the production process.

Produce flexibly thanks to maximum networking

Two networked material handling and robot systems at the trade fair stand will show how production is optimized through networking. The palletizing process of the 3-axle material handling system and the welding of the robot occurs in one process. The communication occurs via a Euromap 67 interface. Both systems are complete solutions from Baumüller, from the control software to the drive. Baumüller thus shows how machine modules can be optimally automated for the production process and also flexibly automated depending on the application. The individual modules can easily be combined to form complete machines and systems or also integrated into new or existing systems.

In the system area, the focus is on component developments as well as innovations in software and visualization. Standardized databases, a wide range of field buses and open interfaces are the basis for flexible and efficient communication and networking. With the software modules from Baumüller, mechanical engineers and machine users benefit from pre-programmed comprehensive features, which simplify the commissioning of Baumüller considerably and thus help achieve a faster time-to-market and high level of error security. The modules can easily be incorporated in the programming interface of the respective control unit so that there is not any additional programming work.

Visitors can convince themselves of the intuitive operation of the Baumüller visualization and the advantages of web capability directly at the exhibits. The user can then conveniently access the visualization of the production data on a smartphone or tablet whenever needed.

In the service area, Baumüller offers networking via sensor-based machine monitoring that can be coupled by machinery manufacturers or users with different service models. The condition monitoring system improves the availability of machines and reduces the costs for service and maintenance. This solution is also presented at the trade fair booth as part of the overall package.

With the new generation of box PCs b maXX PCC04, Baumüller is providing a new scalable and versatile control platform to users. The industry PC offers a large amount of interfaces, is expandable and thus enables a flexible machine construction.

Remote maintenance: HMI with Security Software

The networking of man, machine or sensors is increasing in the industrial sector. The innovations promote a highly efficient, intelligent and flexible production. However the thread of cyber criminality is rising with this trend. To protect industrial security, Baumüller offers a secure solution for the remote maintenance of machines and systems with Ubiquity: The Ubiquity runtime environment is pre-installed in all Windows-based HMIs from Baumüller and can be connected with a domain.

With Ubiquity, Baumüller is providing its customers with an ability to communicate for process control and an option for easy and secure remote maintenance. The state of machines can thus be monitored worldwide and quickly responded to in a targeted manner if necessary. This capability of quick and accurate diagnostics and troubleshooting saves time and money. Ubiquity thus increases the productivity and efficiency of machines.
