A team of 20 people from Technische Informationssysteme (TIG) from Rankweil, Austria, manned six partner stands at this year's K show. New products were introduced and the proven TIG authentig MES solution was presented in numerous talks with customers. This gave TIG the opportunity to show its capability as the partner of choice for digitalisation in the plastics sector and look back on a very successful trade fair.
Long-term cooperation links TIG with ENGEL, FANUC, JSW, LWB, MAPLAN and REP. These partners integrated TIG in the Expert Corners of their stands.
This meant that TIG was present in 3 halls and at 6 stands. Feedback from the partners on this cooperation was extremely positive. Especially the live connections between the machines at the partner stands with TIG products were applauded. Visitors were able to experience real-time monitoring of the quality, machine and order status of the connected machines in line with the requirements of Industry 4.0.
In more than 300 talks, customers above all showed interest in the proven TIG authentig MES solution, but also in new products:
were very well received.
One thing that was striking was the fact that companies from the extrusion production sector are now also showing interest in MES solutions and that digitalisation is also making inroads here.
This product sees TIG close the gap between MES and complex data analysis, establishing itself as the digitalisation partner for the future.
The tool enables the analysis of online data in the cloud, or on-premise, with predictive quality algorithms, delivering information on the current process status of the machine and the quality of the products.
The system automatically detects an imminent deterioration without the user having to specify tolerance or intervention limits beforehand.
Users are informed in good time before the machine starts producing rejects, or the quality deteriorates.
Thanks to our Business Intelligence solution for the shop floor, TIG offers a comprehensive set of information at a glance. Problems are immediately detected and promptly remedied. Interactive and online-based data analysis considerably facilitates shop floor management's operative work and provides support during production meetings. In addition, the existing KPIs provide a sound basis for strategic decisions in the production area.
