HELLER4Industry: increasing productivity on workpiece level
In terms of Industry 4.0, HELLER is focusing on even higher machine productivity and on supporting consistent engineering chains. Core aspects are supplementary machine functions, on-demand services and enhanced service capabilities. On three modules HELLER illustrates the importance of ease of operation, customised workpiece manufacturing and enhanced evaluation of existing data.
HELLER4Operation is an easy-to-use, operator-oriented user interface for HELLER machines. The use of touch controls at the tool/workpiece loading station enables fast and robust operation.
The second area, HELLER4Services, comprises digital services. The HELLER Services Interface focuses on transparency of manufacturing and maintenance processes. The module forms the basis for evaluations and statistics, thus providing support in reducing machine downtimes. Additionally, the visualisation of specific information, including status displays of axes, spindles or other assemblies, enables users to determine wear and to take preventive measures in order to avoid unscheduled downtimes.
The third area, HELLER4Performance, comprises the machine analysis for process and performance optimisation, time-synchronous extraction of real-time data into the internet as well as evaluation and graphical display, using an external cloud platform.
For HELLER, the aim of all considerations, possibilities and solutions remains the reduction of the customer’s cycle times, and thus workpiece costs, by providing high productivity. Already today, HELLER is generating added value for the customer through greater ease of use of the machine, optimal integration into the network and expanded functionalities and service possibilities.
