Int'l Metalworking News for Asia
- Call it as the fourth industrial revolution or industry 4.0, there is no denying that a fundamental shift in the supply chain is changing the way manufacturing industries operate. The August issue of International Metalworking News for Asia explores a range of articles associated with Industry 4.0. These articles implement digital improvements to business processes that are key to growth. While modern portal machines have now achieved high level optimisation in terms of performance, and dynamics are little more than details, the question of service is becoming more important. After all, what characterises a good relationship between supplier and user? Zimmermann is currently working on an app that will display the machine state to the customer at all times. If an error occurs, the user immediately sees a message that is sent directly to the company. Find out more in this month’s Metal Cutting section. Despite the fact that there is an awareness of the importance of digital transformation in South East Asia, this has not yet fully translated into reality. Majority of the companies in the region are still not fully on board, suggesting that the digital transformation race has really only just started in South East Asia. Enterprise Close- up features two executives from Siemens who are experts in digital factory. Here, they talk about digital concepts for companies of different types. They propose effective technology improvements to help customers optimise their manufacturing processes, and digitalise their assets and machineries to better manage operations on a facility-wide level. Meanwhile, users of CNC manufacturing processes are now expecting improved capability in precision part machining, reduced setting and process adjustment time, and integration with automation systems. Learn about Renishaw Equator flexible gauge now offered with IPC (intelligent process control) software, providing the functionality to fully automate tool offset updates in CNC manufacturing processes, in this issue’s Metrology section. This capability has said to be already used by Renishaw customers worldwide to achieve considerable performance gains across a wide variety of industries, applications and CNC machine types, including lathes, machining centres and highly automated machining cells. We sincerely trust that you will have as much pleasure reading this edition of International Metalworking News for Asia magazine as we enjoyed compiling topics about digitalisation for you. Happy Reading!
