Successfully transferring Industrie 4.0 into reality

21.11.2016

• SmartFactoryKL and DFKI will exhibit at SPS IPC Drives
• Agile factory systems and human-machine-interaction are main topics

"With their joint booth at SPS IPC Drives in Nuremberg (Germany), Europe's leading expert trade fair for electric automation, the Technology Initiative SmartFactory KL e.V. and the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) will present a spectrum of their competences in the domain of Industrie 4.0 (hall 10, stand 540) from November 22 to 24, 2016. The exhibited demonstrators will show how the transfer of the Industrie 4.0 paradgim into industrial applications can succeed."


The future of production: integrating the human through scalable automation, control and communication through cyber-physical systems as well as standardized interfaces.

In developing agile factory systems and human-machine-interaction, we see a great opportunity for the successful transfer of our Industrie 4.0 technologies into producing companies", said Prof. Dr.-Ing. Detlef Zühlke, Director of the DFKI Research Department for Innovative Factory Systems and Chairman of Technology-Initiative SmartFactory KL e.V. about the trade fair presentation. Three demonstrators will be the booth highlight this year.

Scalable automation

Thanks to Industrie 4.0, customers will be able to order individual products produced at low costs with short delivery time. Great order fluctuations require a compromise between high output and low unit costs as well as flexible operating costs. Taking this into account, SmartFactory-KL and the Research Department Innovative Factory Systems of the DFKI have developed a mobile demonstrator, which shows the future of production:

integrating humans through scalable automation, controlling individual production elements through cyber-physical systems and enabling their communication as well as expanding production plants through standardized interfaces. The module on exhibit produces customer-individually and in a flexible output amount.

Knowledge transfer on the shop floor

The assistance and collaboration system "AmbiWise" enables mobile and cross-location knowledge exchange in the company. The demonstrator which will be exhibited at the trade show demonstrates, amongst other things, how videos on maintenance topics, which were created by employees, are used as tutorials for new co-workers.

The development of AmbiWise by the Research Department Innovative Factory Systems of the DFKI has been supported by the German Federal Ministry for Education and Research over a period of three years. The application partners Daimler Trucks and Schaeffler Technologies have successfully tested it at five locations.

Complex networking in the production

The third demonstrator is a module from Bosch Rexroth which belongs to the Industrie 4.0 demonstrator of the SmartFactory-KL partner consortium. By means of open interfaces, horizontal and vertical networking is possible: for example, the continuous access of commissioning, operation and diagnostics by means of a smart device which integrates IT processes into production.

Im Focus: First evidence on the source of extragalactic particles

For the first time ever, scientists have determined the cosmic origin of highest-energy neutrinos. A research group led by IceCube scientist Elisa Resconi, spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Center SFB1258 at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), provides an important piece of evidence that the particles detected by the IceCube neutrino telescope at the South Pole originate from a galaxy four billion light-years away from Earth.

To rule out other origins with certainty, the team led by neutrino physicist Elisa Resconi from the Technical University of Munich and multi-wavelength...

Im Focus: Magnetic vortices: Two independent magnetic skyrmion phases discovered in a single material

For the first time a team of researchers have discovered two different phases of magnetic skyrmions in a single material. Physicists of the Technical Universities of Munich and Dresden and the University of Cologne can now better study and understand the properties of these magnetic structures, which are important for both basic research and applications.

Whirlpools are an everyday experience in a bath tub: When the water is drained a circular vortex is formed. Typically, such whirls are rather stable. Similar...

Im Focus: Breaking the bond: To take part or not?

Physicists working with Roland Wester at the University of Innsbruck have investigated if and how chemical reactions can be influenced by targeted vibrational excitation of the reactants. They were able to demonstrate that excitation with a laser beam does not affect the efficiency of a chemical exchange reaction and that the excited molecular group acts only as a spectator in the reaction.

A frequently used reaction in organic chemistry is nucleophilic substitution. It plays, for example, an important role in in the synthesis of new chemical...

Im Focus: New 2D Spectroscopy Methods

Optical spectroscopy allows investigating the energy structure and dynamic properties of complex quantum systems. Researchers from the University of Würzburg present two new approaches of coherent two-dimensional spectroscopy.

"Put an excitation into the system and observe how it evolves." According to physicist Professor Tobias Brixner, this is the credo of optical spectroscopy....

Im Focus: Chemical reactions in the light of ultrashort X-ray pulses from free-electron lasers

Ultra-short, high-intensity X-ray flashes open the door to the foundations of chemical reactions. Free-electron lasers generate these kinds of pulses, but there is a catch: the pulses vary in duration and energy. An international research team has now presented a solution: Using a ring of 16 detectors and a circularly polarized laser beam, they can determine both factors with attosecond accuracy.

Free-electron lasers (FELs) generate extremely short and intense X-ray flashes. Researchers can use these flashes to resolve structures with diameters on the...
