Industry 4.0-Enabling Technology at EMO 2019

GF Machining Solutions will highlight its comprehensive range of Industry 4.0-enabling technologies at EMO 2019. "The company will provide visitors with a 1,156 sq. m sneak peek into the future of manufacturing, including advanced and intelligent solutions capable of taking manufacturers' processes to the next level of productivity," said a company spokesperson.

GF Machining Solutions' EMO Hannover 2019 exhibit will spotlight live application demonstrations illustrating advanced technologies as well as an Industry 4.0 corner dedicated to growing industrial segments and customers' shops. These solutions go beyond GF Machining Solutions' milling and electrical discharge machining (EDM) expertise to include new technologies-such as laser texturing, laser micromachining and additive manufacturing (AM)-as well as customer services, productivity-enhancing software and connectivity solutions necessary for the highest level of efficiency.

Manufacturing technology on display will include:

  • Digital products to advance users' Industry 4.0 readiness, including the Open Platform Communications (OPC) Unified Architecture (UA) protocol. A machine communication language used by all GF Machining Solutions machines, technologies and services, the OPC UA collects and makes accessible a wide range of data that manufacturers can use to better analyze and fine-tune their processes through the new rConnect Dashboard. Due to rConnect digital services platform's connectivity, users have instant access to online expert support.
  • The AgieCharmilles CUT AM 500 is a fast horizontal wire EDM solution that makes it easy to separate additively manufactured metal parts from the build plate while maintaining geometrical accuracy and assembly readiness. This machine is a suitable complement to GF Machining Solutions' and 3D Systems' scalable, workflow-optimized DMP Factory 500 and DMP Flex 350 3D metal printing solutions.
  • The Mikron MILL S 400 U with the HEIDENHAIN TNC 640 contouring control represents the Mikron MILL S range of high-speed milling solutions at EMO. This range features Automated Machine Calibration (AMC), which enables users to calibrate 5-axis models at any time to achieve greater machining precision, and Original Manufacturing Calibration (OMC), which provides higher 3-axis machine precision straight from the factory.
  • The AgieCharmilles CUT P 550 PRO, with an easy-to-use new human-machine interface (HMI), will be launched in 2020.
  • The DMP Flex 350 metal 3D printing solution from GF Machining Solutions and 3D Systems offers improved print productivity and reduced cost of operation.

GF Machining Solutions will also highlight its expertise in manufacturing processes, presenting dedicated solutions for growing industrial segments including aerospace, automotive, medical, information and communications technology (ICT) and electronic components.

Three zones on the booth will feature solutions to industry-specific manufacturing challenges:

  • Adaptive blade milling, mill-turn blade machining and dedicated EDM and AM solutions for aerospace component production in which quality is critical
  • Mold and die and part-production solutions including laser texturing and AM for high-tolerance medical manufacturing
  • Manufacturing solutions for car lighting, camera lens and connector applications-including laser texturing and intelligent manufacturing solutions from CAD to the part-to keep pace with the automotive industry's trend towards connected mobility.
