From heavy metal working machinery to precision glass cutting systems, material working systems need to become smarter to answer the needs of mass customisation and sustainability. Through EcoStruxure™ Machine, IoT-enabled architecture, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) can use advanced digital automation solutions (connecting products, controls, software, and services) to deliver the next generation of efficient and sustainable material working machines at a reduced cost and with shorter lead times.
Discover our EcoStruxure solutions for material working machines
Simple machinery defines as those types of machinery without accurate positioning, multi-axis synchronisation requirements, also without safety requirements like Safety Torque Off (STO). Examples include bending machines or cutting machines.
Performing machinery defines as machinery with STO, also with accurate positioning requirements, and less than 8-axis synchronisation. Examples include laminating machine and a panel sawing machine.
Complex machinery is defined as machinery with STO, also with accurate positioning requirements，and more than 8-axis synchronisation. Examples include forming machine and printing machine.
