Open industry standards (OPC-UA) enable information logistics
The SEEBURGER IoT solution offers the technical foundation for all data integration tasks with its modeling and integration options as well as a comprehensive set of communication adapters. This includes standardized data models, such as AutomationML and communication paths such as SOAP, as well as the adjustment to application-specific templates or standards provided by the business partner.
The SEEBURGER IoT solution translates the proprietary interfaces of products, machines and systems into uniform, standardized OPC UA compatible interfaces. It enriches the normal information flow (ERP, MES, SPS) with process and engineering data between the shop floor and the top floor.
SEEBURGER Customer Examples:
Information Logistics for Adaptive Manufacturing
For a commissioned production, a complete Track & Trace of product and process data is key. A globally-acting medium-sized company recognized early on the need for continuous digital transformation based on digital objects of the products, processes and resources through the entire life cycle from the planning through the execution. SEEBURGER BIS has become the hub for engineering data for production (Engineering Data Hub) tracking all adjustments and states of the resources automatically. There is full transparency of involved resources and products.
For more than 10 years, an international leading supplier has leveragee the SEEBURGER integration plaform for RFID-based production. It is following KANBAN achieving an extremely efficient flow of materials. The networking and automation of production, the traceability of products as well as the permanent monitoring of the production processes are mirroring the production process into the digital world. Synchronized with service and delivery capacity this results in fast reaction times and a very high availability.
Human-Machine Interaction in Manufacturing
Cooperating robotics applications are very flexible and scalable automation solutions, but they require continuous data integration and exchange solutions between shop floor and top floor. SEEBURGER Business Integration Suite ensures the flow of information between process control, machine control and monitoring systems and makes the information available to employees directly via mobile devices. Apart from the middleware functions, security mechanisms such as PKI (Public Key Infrastructure) are the focus of shop floor integration.
