Euroblech 2016: Light up your factory future with Amada - Amada Engineering Europe
“CREATING CUSTOMER VALUE using Amada’s latest machines and processing technologies” was the Amada’s main message during the 24th edition of Euroblech, the biggest European fair for Sheet-Metal working held in Hanover, Germany, every two years.
This year the exhibition counted more than 60.000 visitors coming from more than 100 different countries.
Amada participated with a booth of 2000 sqm, where technology and innovation were the main characters.
In addition to the presentation of a wide range of fiber lasers and automated bending cells, new Software suite and concepts have been showed and promoted too: VPSS3i suite and V-factory concepts.
VPSS3i suite, developed to manage the unified programming of all machines and technologies (blank, bend, weld), achieved positive results, registering also an increase of performed demo of 25% than 2014.
This data shown a growing interest of customers for off-line programming.
VPSS3i suite is already available and soon Amada will start the distribution on the European market.
V-factory suite embraces the whole production cycle in order for the customer to manage and optimize its entire sheet metal factory.
At V-factory desk, in order to show the prototype of this new solution, a lot of Demo have been performed and furthermore, questionnaires have been filled in to catch customers’ feeling about IoT & Industry 4.0 themes.
Thanks to questionnaires, demo results and customers’ feedback, Amada collected important information necessary to concretely develop a suite able to satisfy customers’ expectations and needs.
Especially, the new app “Amada machines monitoring” has been really appreciated.
During the exhibition the customers had the possibility to try it personally, testing and checking all features and potentialities.
This new app allows customers to monitor their machines wherever they are, whenever they want and simply connecting from any mobile device.
Based on cloud solution, “Amada machines monitoring” app, monitors machines (machines status and working details), alarm and efficiency in real time.
It’s always on, scalable and flexible.
KPI (Key Performance Indicator) and OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness) are always updated and real time statistics (material and tools usage) can be easily produced.
VPSS3i suite and V-factory can be considered the bricks of Amada’s wider approach to Smart Manufacturing.
