Smart Manufacturing Data Platform

Renishaw's new Central manufacturing connectivity and data platform is a new data-driven manufacturing solution that brings the power of connectivity to the machine shop floor, resulting in efficient, productive operations with optimized processes, reduced downtime and minimized waste, the company reported.

Renishaw will demonstrate how Central delivers the factory of the future at the Quality Show, October 24-26 in Rosemont, IL, and at WESTEC, held at the Long Beach Convention Center in Long Beach, CA, November 7-9. The exhibit will feature Renishaw's Central platform and other smart manufacturing solutions, including the Renishaw Equator gauging systems.

Renishaw Central collects metrology, status and alarm data from connected devices across the shop floor. Devices include additive manufacturing (AM) systems, on-machine measurements systems, shop floor gauging and co-ordinate measuring machines (CMMs). With insight into the process performance of each workstation, manufacturers have a better understanding of where to take corrective measures. In unattended processes, the status of devices can be monitored remotely. If any errors occur, they are detected and displayed within the Central platform's dashboards or other third-party applications.

"The platform operates on-premises, allows shop administrators to own their data and ensures that process control is automated without depending on an internet connection," said Brandon Golab, Machine Tool Product Manager at Renishaw Inc. "Connectivity, consistency and control drives confidence and, in turn, the development of future factory concepts."
