BURKHARDT+WEBER, an international manufacturer of machine tools, relies on condition monitoring with compacer

BURKHARDT+WEBER is planning to integrate edbic as an IoT gateway in its machining centers in the long term. As an Industry 4.0 platform, edbic collects data from the machine control system and monitors it in real time. This significantly reduces maintenance costs and enables predictive maintenance in the next step.

edbic as an IoT gateway and Industry 4.0 application brings BURKHARDT+WEBER numerous advantages

Thanks to modern condition monitoring, the company saves costs that arise from unexpected maintenance failures and downtimes. The automated order suggestions, e.g. for defective parts, speed up production processes and make planning easier. The system can also be controlled remotely via an app.

Real-time data+

Better planning capability, as unplanned maintenance downtimes are avoided and downtimes are reduced to a minimum.

Process optimization+

Automated order proposals, e.g. for defective components, and thus also a reduction in errors when reordering operating resources.

Remote Control+

More transparency through mobile remote controlling (via app).

The challenge

BURKHARDT+WEBER has made a name for itself in the world of large machining centers. With an international focus, the Reutlingen-based company delivers to all parts of the world - wherever the highest quality is required.

For 130 years, everything has revolved around the development of efficient and innovative production solutions for the demanding machining of steel, cast iron and titanium parts. The machining centers are further developed in interdisciplinary teams and all core components and in-house developments are manufactured internally. In the long term, the compacer IoT solution is to be integrated into BURKHARDT+WEBER machining centers. By installing the compacer IoT gateway, based on the edbic platform, data is collected from the machine control system.

In future, BURKHARD+WEBER machines will be able to provide a wide range of data that can be analyzed in real time to show the status of the machine and its performance on a dashboard.

The solution

An IoT hub prepares this data in such a way that various evaluations are possible and the operator has an overview at all times. By connecting the machines to the compacer solution, condition monitoring is possible, but the first milestone for predictive maintenance has also been laid.

BURKHARDT+WEBER is thus creating the best possible conditions for its customers to implement upcoming digitalization projects in production processes.
