Industrie 4.0 in Pilz production

Moving beyond involvement in the Research Alliance and the SmartFactory KL research platform, Industrie 4.0 is not just an initiative at Pilz, it has now arrived in the production process.

With the growing integration of machinery and infrastructure through the use of IT technologies in production, Pilz is also highlighting its profile as a technology leader in its own production operations. It has not only generated the infrastructure required for intelligent production, but has also implemented the elements of Industrie 4.0 at an early state.

An intelligent workpiece conveyor developed in-house is already in use. This speeds up and simplifies the process of populating the circuit boards and the soldering process. The workpiece carriers automatically find their way from the soldering shaft to the assembly unit thanks to a built-in RFID chip.

Optimisations en route to Industrie 4.0

Intelligent production by Pilz

Pilz will continue on a step-by-step basis to roll out intelligent production: Machine data will be deliberately gathered and processed for production control. Evaluating these data will yield important information about changes in the condition of the machinery and levels of wear. Maintenance can then be carried out preventively.

"Predictive maintenance" avoids malfunctions and downtimes. Saving the latest versions of work documents in a Pilz Cloud will also be implemented. All data and documents will then be permanently available in real time. All mobile end devices in the production process can then be called up from everywhere.

IT in integrated production

Pilz is aware of the challenges to IT security by a fully integrated production set-up. That is why we are investing in a comprehensive security infrastructure to monitor all data traffic. The measures include a separate computer centre reflecting the latest standards. Anomalies can be picked up at an early stage through ongoing analysis of protocol data and all other data.

In addition, different firewall systems have been installed for individual production areas, so that the necessary security level can be individually determined by zone. Stoppages and safety risks are avoided, and know-how is protected.

"Pilz Think Tank 4.0"

Pilz Think Tank

Cooperation, specifically between the Information Technology and Production Technology departments, which is so pivotal for Industrie 4.0, is another top priority of Pilz. The specially created “Pilz Think Tank 4.0” brings together members of Production and IT and equips them with the necessary resources to plan and carry out joint projects for Industrie 4.0.
