User Day 2017
Forum 1: Industrial IoT
RFID and Wireless IoT par excellence!
Lectures in 2017
Learn how leading companies employ RFID for predictive maintenance, tool use optimisation, and mass customization. Embedded in cast aluminium parts and machinery or attached to tools, containers, and vehicles, RFID solutions optimize processes in automotive manufacturing, aerospace, electrical engineering, machine engineering and more.
Efficient Test Device Management Via RFID In Airbus A380 Cabin Interior Assembly
Project Manager Efficiency Management, Airbus in Hamburg
In Hamburg-Finkenwerder, Airbus tracks test devices with regard to the cabin interior assembly of the Airbus A380 with RFID since February 2017. The goal is to simplify the management of the test devices and to enhance efficiency potentials. Airbus documents the issuance, return and status of the test devices via an RFID gate and an RFID-controlled key cabinet. The employees guarantee 100 percent transparency and control by identifying themselves via their employee ID.
New Opportunities for the European Industry with Real Time Location Services Pre-integrated for SAP Users
CEO & Founder, H&D Wireless
The Griffin Enterprise Positioning Services (GEPS) for Industry from H&D Wireless AB is specifically developed to address asset management and visualization challenges of the global manufacturing industry, including asset utilization, production bottlenecks, uneven production flow or stops and unexpected machinery breakdowns. The new real-time localization system is based on GEPS, an IoT cloud platform containing wireless modules, cloud services with analytics and artificial intelligence and smartphone applications. This RTLS solution provides real-time information between physical objects in the process and the business system, for example, racks and pallets that are being used in the production process and in the supply chain.
SBB Cargo uses RFID as the basis for digitalization and predictive maintenance
Project Manager Asset Intelligence, SBB Cargo
The Swiss Federal railways (SBB) are upgrading: Freight traffic subsidiary SBB Cargo relies on a widescale RFID solution to increase efficiency and productivity. Over 5,000 freight cars and train control stations all over Switzerland will be outfitted with RFID transponders and readers. The goal is modernizing individual railroad car operations and maintenance processes.
Wireless Monitoring of Manufacturing Equipment Powered by Energy Harvesting
Prof. Dr. Juan-Mario Gruber
Head of Research Self-sustaining Systems, ZHAW Zurich University of Applied Sciences / Institute of Embedded Systems (InES)
This presentation discusses the concept and realization of an energy autarkic condition monitoring system. Goal is to provide an easy-to-implement service device for manufacturing equipment. The System is optimized for low power consumption and works completely wireless. The required energy is provided by energy harvesting. All data is transmitted wireless using Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE). Visualization and configuration can be done using standard smart phones and tablets.
Embedding of RFID Tags in the Manufacturing Process of Cast Automotive Parts
Deputy Head of Department Foundry Technology, Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Technology and Advanced Materials IFAM
The Fraunhofer IFAM has developed a patented process by which RFID transponders can be integrated directly into components during the casting process with aluminium melt. Together with project partners of the automotive industry, the institute provided the proof-of-concept that this process can be used reliably in large-scale production, using LF transponders. The next development goal: the integration of UHF transponders for additional benefits and security reasons in the component supply chain.
RFID Integration Support for +500 Suppliers of OEMs e.g. VW, Porsche, and Audi
Director, Data Elektronik
In the prototype environment, RFID applications have been tried and tested for years. Now, it is time for the transformation to mass production. The talk will present current emerging challenges and takes a look at how a transfer of the solutions that have been developed and integrated for the automotive industry can also be achieved in other industries where optimised processes in material management and in the flow of goods are required.
Automotive Parts Identification in the Transparent Prototype Project at VW
Dr. Malte Schmidt
Head of Information Systems, Virtual Vehicle Construction and Systems, Volkswagen
The roll-out of the Transparent Prototype project is accompanied by targeted RFID support, that helps suppliers employ RFID technology, to make it easier for them to get started with this new technology. The suppliers are qualified by Volkswagen for the TransparentPrototype project and quickly develop their own ideas about how RFID can be used profitably - a positive effect.“
Wearables, Employee Apps and Collaborative Robots – WS Kunststoff-Service Lives Industry 4.0
Managing Director, WS Kunststoff-Service
Supplier WS Kunststoff-Service shows in numerous applications how Industry 4.0 combines production with information and communication technologies. Production employees wear data glasses and optional RFID bracelets for parts identification. However, digitalisation goes even further: every employee is integrated into the connected world of the company via tablet or smartphone and special apps. In his presentation, Wassim Saeidi shows the potentials of a completely industrialised Production 4.0 and also answers the question of how robots are integrated as new colleagues.
IT Security in the Industrie 4.0 – How Is Digital Transformation Implemented Safely?
Thorsten Henkel, PhD
Division Director Industrial Security Solution, Fraunhofer-Institute for Secure Information Technology SIT
What new questions of IT security emerge in the course of implementing Industrie 4.0 solutions? How does the digital transformation of industrial production processes change the requirements for state-of-the-art IT security? These crucial questions are at the center of the keynote speech. Milestones achieved so far in IUNO – National Reference Project for IT-Security in Industrie 4.0 show ways to get active for small and medium-sized enterprises in particular via four Industrie 4.0 demonstrators and an IT-security toolbox. Thus, IT security in digital transformation can be taken into account comprehensively.
