Baumüller will be exhibiting its solutions and systems for Industry 4.0 at the Hannover Messe from April 1–5, 2019 as a specialist for automation and drive technology. In hall 14 at stand H12, the company will exhibit smart motor concepts, intelligently integrated drive functions and powerful control platforms at various stations. In addition to systems and components, the companies of the Baumüller Group will present their consultation and engineering services for mechanical engineering and machine operators as well as the complete range of services across the entire life cycle of machines and systems. In this way, visitors to the trade fair stand can find out about the design of new drive systems and the optimization of existing drive systems and the latest tools and software solutions.
Life Cycle Management
The firm is a full service provider and covers both the development and production of components as well as system solutions and countless service services for mechanical and plant engineering as well as for machine operators. Under the motto “Enabling Industry 4.0: Value creation in every phase,” visitors go through each phase of the life cycle while touring the trade fair stand, thereby learning the respective solutions and products for this purpose live using the example of a 6‑axis welding robot:
- Technology package – Automation system of the high-performance box-PC b maXX PCC-04 to the high-precision servomotor series DSH1
- Engineering – the integrated Engineering Framework ProMaster for all automation tasks, including the new motion library for multi-axis applications
- Commissioning – Virtual commissioning for quick time-to-market with the new tool ProSimulation
- Production – the optimization tool BAUDIS IoT for predictive maintenance and process optimization offers benefit-oriented Industry 4.0 for production
- Service – Intelligent service concepts, from machine assembly to the global spare parts concept
Virtual configuration and testing of automation systems: The newly developed software ProSimulation will be presented for the first time at the Hannover Messe, allowing customers to easily and immediately enter into the world of simulation. The new tool very concretely simplifies the virtual design, optimization and commissioning of machines and plants. Depending on the level of experience, customers can either quickly build their own simulations or applications thanks to the base library, or they can import existing software models thanks to the open interfaces.
The advantages of ProSimulation are time and cost savings during development and commissioning, optimization of existing machines and systems as well as the establishment of simulation know-how in the company. ProSimulation extends the range of functions of the ProDrive operating software, which allows for the simple and fast commissioning, parameterization and operation of all b maXX controllers from Baumüller.
Simple engineering: Expansion of the Motion Control Library to Include Coordinated Motion Baumüller will present the Engineering Framework ProMaster at the Hannover Messe, which is based on the library concept: In addition to the base library with motion modules as per PLCOpen, Baumüller offers a growing library of specific modules as well as machine modules with comprehensive functionalities for quick and easy engineering. Each machine module is tailored to key machine functions and is optimally adjusted. The base library has now been expanded to include different motion modules for the motion control of up to three motor axes of a system.
Compact Water-Cooled Servomotors
The company is expanding its servomotor portfolio with the water-cooled model sizes 45 and 56. The advantages of water cooling especially come into their own in the small installation sizes with their space-saving installation and simultaneously very high power density. The water cooling makes it possible for high nominal power motors to be used in a very compact installation space. For mechanical engineers, this means optimal mechanical properties, lower costs and better economic efficiency.
