Baumüller to present intelligent automation solutions at Hannover

Baumüller, the automation and innovative electric drive company, will present its wide range of Industry 4.0 solutions at the Hannover Messe from April 23-27, 2018.

Visitors to the stand (hall 14, stand H12) can find out about the design of new drive systems and the optimization of existing drive systems as well as current service concepts from the field of Industry 4.0.

The automation specialist equips entire machine modules, from the motor to the software, which can then be linked to each other via suitable interfaces or that can be integrated into existing systems.

Mechanical engineers and users can shorten development times and optimize existing systems with the latest simulation services and component models from Baumüller.

Using a so-called digital twin, the machine performance can already be predicted in the design process. In this way, the machine’s behavior during operation can already be tested prior to commissioning and errors can be detected and rectified at an early stage.

Mechanical engineers also receive all of the required project data about the drive train already at an early stage of the development process and can thus design it accordingly. This shortens the commissioning times and the probability of errors is greatly reduced.

The new virtual models can not only be used to design drive systems, but they can also be used to optimize existing systems. Potential for improvement can be identified and tested in the simulation.

With BAUDIS IoT, the automation specialist is exhibiting an intelligent solution for optimizing processes and for continuously monitoring components and machine states.

BAUDIS IoT collects and analyzes data, which is then recorded, archived and evaluated on site by the operator or via a cloud at the company headquarters or at an external service provider location.

This data is analyzed using algorithms, which are constantly evolving and thereby becoming more intelligent, in order to then be able to issue useful recommendations for process optimization or maintenance activities to the machine operator. BAUDIS IoT is manufacturer-independent and can be retrofitted at any time.

In the component sector, Baumüller will present innovations from the fields of control units, converters and motors, especially decentralized drive technology for mobile and traditional industrial applications.

Baumüller offers numerous advantages in system design to machine and vehicle manufacturers with its various decentralized drive solutions. Decentralized solutions counter the trend of machine modularization.

The servo motors of the DSH1 series were developed for applications that require maximum precision.

Thanks to an extra-low cogging torque, the latest derivative of the servo motor product range achieves an extremely good control quality, making it particularly suitable for applications that require a high level of running smoothness. The DSH1 servo motors are available in the sizes of 45-100, covering a speed range of up to 5000 rpm.

With the multi-axis controller b maXX 5800, b maXX is presenting a compact solution for the control of up to six drive axes.

The controller can be freely configured by the mechanical engineer, i.e. it can be equipped with exactly the right individual axis performance. The compact system reduces the wiring effort and provides faster communication, since dead times from the fieldbus communication from one controller to the other are eliminated.

In the area of control technology, Baumüller is presenting scalable and versatile solutions for all types of production systems with its HMIs and the box PCs b maXX PCC-04. A large number of interfaces for the PCs and different versions of the HMIs allows for a flexibly linkable and scalable machine design.
