Benefits of thyssenkrupp’s Automation & Digitalization solutions

All of our automation and data analytics systems are designed in a modular way, so that existing machines can be upgraded. To make sure our systems are compatible to existing equipment our experienced service team offers automation ready checks prior to every automation project. Depending on the age of the equipment some of the hardware like actuators or machine controls need to be upgraded.

Autonomous operation is only possible under highest safety standards. For all moving machines we offer reliable collision avoidance systems, on one hand protecting employees and on the other hand costly collisions with obstacles.

Once a machine gets retrofitted with our modular our automation system, it is additionally capable for data analytics. Making use of state of the art machine learning algorithms insights into the behavior of a machine can be uncovered. This way it is possible to improve maintenance schedules, machine productivity and predict failures in advance.

Our engineers and process experts worked closely together with our programmers to find a way of autonomously operating machines in an optimal way. For example, by continuously measuring various environmental factors our system can predict upcoming load and proactively change machine control parameters in advance. This can lead to increase in throughput of up to 10% and at the same time reduce machine stress, which has a positive effect on the machines lifetime.
