As well as constant optimisation of machining times, the reduction of set-up and non-productive periods also always play an important role in a flexible production environment. In addition to machine concepts with optimised set-up times, KAPP NILES offers intelligent components.
Tool data management in KN assist | the digital workbench KN extender
KAPP NILES has developed its own platform called KN assist which contains a tool data management system among other features.
Exchangeable, intelligent components with all geometric and process-related data can be managed and clearly displayed outside of the machine within the tool data management system. All tool data is therefore stored centrally in a single location and is retrieved from there.
With KN assist monitoring, our customers are even better supported when it comes to maintenance. Insights regarding the condition and production behaviour of the machines are now easily derived. Negative influence on the process or the functional behaviour of the machine tool can be recognised in a much earlier stage. This enables the operator correspondingly to quickly counteract and avoid unplanned downtimes.
A complete remote maintenance infrastructure can be implemented with the KN assist remote service, which enables secure interaction between machine operators and machine manufacturers. KN assist remote maintenance includes a structured service process which allows machine operators to report faults to the machine manufacturer via a service request. KAPP NILES is automatically notified about service cases. If required, the operator can permit time and location restricted access to the system, for example, if a service employee has to access the machine control system.
