CELOS from DMG MORI
A central component of DMG MORI’s customer-oriented innovation strategy is the app-supported CELOS operating and control system, which the machine tool manufacturer introduced approximately 3 years ago. Since then, it has been continuously and very specifically developed. Using a common interface for machine and office PC, both manufacturing and production planning staff can manage, document and visualize the sequence of jobs and processes as well as the machine data.
Along with its tasks on the factory floor, CELOS also enables data to be exchanged with high-level structures thanks to its open architecture. CELOS therefore enables the customer to fully integrate his machines into the company organization while, at the same time, creating an interface between the machining process and cyber-physical production systems of the future. The advantages for day-to-day operation are impressive: a time-saving of 30% for set-up, and half the effort and time required for calculating technical values or for searching for important data are just one example of savings, which can be achieved with CELOS. Thanks to the continuous development of further future-oriented applications, CELOS ensures a trouble-free introduction of Software Solutions for Industry 4.0.
An excellent example is the CELOS CONDITION ANALYZER. In conjunction with the I4.0 sensor pack, on the one hand, this provides the user with a perfect software tool for monitoring machine condition and machining process, enabling him to carry out timely performance and condition analyses directly at the machine or externally via our CELOS PC.
On the other hand, in the second step, the data gathered by the sensors and locally conditioned can be forwarded to a cloud platform. Here decisive knowledge for a reliable “predictive maintenance” solution can be derived using an algorithm-based long-term evaluation. Customers therefore save maintenance costs and have an effective tool for substantially avoiding unplanned downtimes.
In addition, along with 50 functional expansions and improvements relating to the 16 current standard APPs, at AMB, DMG MORI will for the first time be presenting optional APPs, such as the CELOS PERFORMANCE MONITOR for measuring Key Performance Indicators (KPI) or for so-called OEE analyses.
What is more, with the CELOS DEVELOPER as a creative development environment, the CELOS ecosystem has now also been opened up to third-party providers. The CELOS CLAMP CHECK and the CELOS SURFACE ANALYZER are the first two representatives of this new generation of CELOS partner APPs, which will now be successively followed by further innovations.
CELOS CLAMP CHECK significantly increases machine safety in the turning area based on a wireless in-process monitoring of clamping forces. On the other hand, the CELOS SURFACE ANALYZER, which is certified for medical and aerospace applications, determines the surface quality of the component during the process.
