Smart manufacturing processes through innovative sensor technology
ifm and Sigma Labs support DMG MORI with DMQP-certified solutions for integrated real-time monitoring.
As a pioneer in the digitization of machine tool manufacturing, DMG MORI attaches importance to holistic processes that meet the demands of Industry 4.0. This applies to its own product range as well as to the numerous peripheral solutions of the 120 DMQP partners. With smart products, they make a decisive contribution to recording, analyzing and visualizing data and deriving adaptive functionalities from it. In this way, partners such as ifm electronic gmbh and Sigma Labs support a large number of new, highly interesting use cases. Users benefit from immense improvement potential.
ifm: Innovative solutions for integrated process monitoring
Since the company was founded in 1969, ifm has been developing, producing and selling sensors, controllers, software and systems for industrial automation worldwide. As one of the pioneers in the field of Industry 4.0, ifm develops and implements holistic solutions for the digitalization of the entire value chain “from the sensor to the ERP”. The DMQP partnership with DMG MORI is the culmination of a collaboration that has already lasted twelve years in the development of new products around integrated process monitoring – starting with spindle monitoring and the MPC (Machine Protection Control) technology cycle through to balancing. As a DMQP partner, ifm will continue to implement pioneering technologies together with DMG MORI in the future.
Sigma Labs: Real-time monitoring in selective laser melting
Sigma Labs strengthens DMG MORI as a DMQP partner in the field of ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING. With its PrintRite3D quality assurance software, the company offers the most advanced melt pool monitoring on the market. LASERTEC SLM series machines are PrintRite3D Ready, allowing customers to add the integrated solution as a factory option. The real-time monitoring detects potential anomalies in the material already during additive manufacturing and controls the process accordingly. The technology reduces the effort required in final quality assurance and creates a data-based foundation for component certification.
