Our vision of the Digital Cell
We are taking the first steps towards our vision of the Digital Cell – aimed at delivering 0 % scrap, 40 % less cycle time and 24/7 uptime. To achieve a step-change in die casting and to work towards a better, more efficient and profitable future for the die-casting industry in the long-term, it is not enough to focus on single components, we have to tackle the system as a whole.
To find out more about our vision of the Digital Cell, download the white paper here.
The first and most important step is the introduction of a cell management system to enable one point of access to view, control and operate the entire die-casting cell. Find out more about the Bühler smart cell management system (SmartCMS). High performance die-casting machines which are ready for the digital age, are the basis for our vision - that is what our Fusion and Carat machine series are able to do. To improve uptime, a set of Digital Services, including Downtime Analysis and Predictive Analytics, can help.
With the Digital Cell our vision is connect all key processes. To recognize deviating parameters and correct accordingly, to enable continuous production with exceptional quality.
-40% cycle time
Working on the thermal management process promises great savings in cycle time. Therefore, this area plays an essential role in our vision of the Digital Cell.
The intelligence at the heart of the cell will drive IoT-solutions, such as predictive maintenance. Ultimately, by integrating self-monitoring sensors and machine learning, our vision of the Digital Cell is to avoid production interruptions.
