Solving the riddle of the Sphinx
in-integrierte informationssysteme GmbH is showcasing applications for networked factories at HANNOVER MESSE 2019. These are based on the "sphinx open online" IoT platform and its "Model in the Middle" software in conjunction with corresponding machine learning processes.
in-GmbH is coming to HANNOVER MESSE 2019 to demonstrate how businesses can best harness the enormous potential for added value that industrial digitization has to offer within the context of Industry 4.0. Using a variety of use cases based on the "sphinx open online" IoT platform, in-GmbH - which specializes in integrated, transparent and optimized business processes - provides workflows for networked production lines. The platform's "Model in the Middle" approach, when combined with machine learning, allows users to integrate, digitize and optimize complex systems. Whether it's a smart factory, smart devices or smart service - the platform is designed to make complexity more transparent and support decision-making, while also allowing for autonomous intervention. The "sphinx open online" platform is already being used worldwide in production management technology, energy management, facility management, logistics and other areas.
Besides presenting a number of use cases, in-GmbH is also showcasing a genuine first: "We're unveiling a model factory at our site in Konstanz that is controlled remotely over the internet. Using OPC UA, the automation level is connected to 'sphinx open online', which is run on an edge device. Workpieces are transported between warehouses, machining centers, sorting plants and dispatching areas using handling robots and conveyor belts. From PLC-level up, the software structure matches that of a real factory. Relevant conditions and derived parameters are monitored using cloud-based dashboards, and the system is able to intervene where necessary. The "Model in the Middle" software can be used not only to provide clients with data, but also to orchestrate workflows across multiple systems. What's more, dashboards can be selected and values retrieved or influenced using the optional voice control function. Visitors can watch how settings and adjustments pan out in the factory via video," says Siegfried Wagner, Managing Director of in-integrierte informationssysteme GmbH.

Just plug in to play in the cloud
From the sensor or actuator to the cloud in less than a minute - CloudRail licobo GmbH is bringing this plug-and-play promise to HANNOVER MESSE 2019 and unveiling its new CloudRail.Box for IO-Link-compatible sensors and actuators.
The CloudRail.Box aims to make it easy to connect industrial sensors and actuators to any cloud platform, such as Microsoft Azure or Amazon Web Services. This newly developed system automatically recognizes and configures connected IO modules and sensors. As soon as sensors or IO modules are connected to the CloudRail.Box, they appear on the CloudRail configuration interface, where the desired cloud platform can be selected. The sensor then immediately begins sending data to the chosen platform. Complex integration projects used to take several weeks - even months - but now, thanks to CloudRail, the whole process can be completed in a matter of minutes.
"We're seeing more and more of the traditional automation tasks of IT departments being taken over," says Felix Kollmar, Managing Director of CloudRail. "Through CloudRail, we are creating a new generation of automation technology for IT specialists, connecting sensors directly to the cloud - without requiring expertise in fieldbuses, for example." CloudRail currently supports the cloud services of Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services (AWS), SAP, IBM, Google and Alibaba. It also plans to add even more providers in the future. The CloudRail.Box - which is, of course, also configured and managed using a cloud-based device management solution - allows the user to view status information about all connected modules and sensors, control the flow of data to various cloud providers, and launch remote firmware updates.
CloudRail is in Hannover to showcase its solution, available as a turnkey product, a white-label solution for partners or as a purely software-based solution for existing hardware. Still relatively unknown in the world of automation, this start-up is using HANNOVER MESSE as an opportunity to establish itself in the industry. After all, it already has a few success stories under its belt. "CloudRail has been providing cloud connectors for the software industry for years. Our technology is already being used in over 150 million devices worldwide," says Kollmar, before making a big announcement: "We're now using this expertise to bring OT to the cloud, finally making the Industrial Internet of Things a reality."

Mining the raw material of the future!
The compact IGW/941 edge gateway from SSV Software Systems GmbH brings machine learning to enclosures, helping users gather valuable data close to the source and use it to boost profits.
As we approach the end of the second decade of this new millennium, there is one "raw material" that is proving more valuable and more profitable than anything Mother Earth has given us since time immemorial - data. Often simply generated as a constant by-product in every machine, system and process, this valuable treasure trove can be leveraged using suitable hardware and software and then converted into useable information through machine learning (ML). This in turn can be used to devise predictive maintenance concepts, predictive quality, predictive efficiency and ML-based anomaly detection processes. However, when it comes to the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), you first need special sensors to generate, connect together and prepare this "raw material". Only then can information be mined using corresponding ML algorithms. The resultant "refined raw material" can then be put to good use, both locally - for example, using OPC UA - and on a location-independent basis with the aid of a cloud.
At HANNOVER MESSE 2019, SSV Software Systems GmbH is showcasing its new IGW/941 - a compact edge gateway with pre-installed ML algorithms and a wide range of data science components for industrial applications. The IGW/941 allows users to create applications that, for instance, collect sensor data, convert it into information through classification or regression, and pass on the result via OPC UA or MQTT. The IGW/941 features preconfigured and ready-to-use development tools for the ML training phase and modeling. What's more, SSV offers all IGW/941 users a webinar with the following content: "Basic principles and terminology of machine learning", "A complete machine learning process, including sensor data capture, data preparation, modeling and model assessment", "Determining model accuracy and adapting hyperparameters" and "Combining the output of a machine learning algorithm with other systems".

A gripping development in AI technology!
SCHUNK is at HANNOVER MESSE 2019 to tell visitors from all over the world how its gripping systems are going to use AI to support flexible operations and autonomous handling scenarios.
SCHUNK GmbH & Co. KG is in Hannover to address the radical change sweeping through industrial gripping solutions. Although gripping processes used to be mainly geared towards high productivity and process reliability, the focus is now also on flexibility in conjunction with the smart factory. Until recently, industrial gripping has been relatively rigid - not only do gripping systems have to know the geometry of the parts, but also the exact pick and place position. This means a reliable handling process can currently only be guaranteed when parts are always fed into the handling system in exactly the same way via predetermined travel paths and by specifying target point coordinates. However, as digitization progresses, the highly automated, fully networked and autonomous production system is beginning to take shape.
There is no denying that the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) plays a role in this. There are already initial cognitive intelligence applications for grippers that use cameras, enabling the robot to learn intuitively from operators and then carry out the gripping tasks independently. SCHUNK deliberately designs practical - i.e. industry-oriented - handling processes for these applications by limiting the number of component variations, thus streamlining the classification and training process. As part of an initial use case that utilizes machine learning to classify workpieces and gripping processes, interlocking building blocks are randomly combined and presented to a lightweight robot in a random arrangement on a working surface. By interacting with 2D or 3D cameras, the self-learning system rapidly increases gripping reliability after only a few learning cycles. With each grip, the gripper learns how to successfully pick up and move the workpiece.
After only a few training sessions, the network classifies how to handle the range of workpieces and the resulting combination options. The gripper knows how to pick up and move the workpiece based on learned experience. Thanks to the intelligence of the algorithm, the gripper can classify future combinations and arrangements of workpieces on its own after only a short period of training. According to the developers, this allows the system to handle parts autonomously depending on the situation. The algorithms are continuously adapted using AI methods, which means previously unrecognized correlations and be explored and the handling process further refined.

Focusing on keeping things "EASY", Yaskawa is bringing its solutions to HANNOVER MESSE 2019 to demonstrate how companies can take on the challenges of the increasingly complicated world of Industry 4.0 with the help of consistently user-friendly components.
Despite a multitude of options, there are still many hurdles standing in the way - time is always in short supply, and employees are often overworked. Keeping things "EASY", in line with its main theme for this year, the Japanese company Yaskawa is bringing its latest developments in drive technology and robotics to Hannover to demonstrate how companies can very easily benefit from consistently easy-to-use components within the context of state-of-the-art Industry 4.0. These innovations are set to symbolize simple programmability, rapid commissioning and optimum ease of use. The best example of this is the new GA500 inverter drive, which is making its debut in Hannover, and the i3 mechatronics solution "YASKAWA Cockpit", which is available to customers as an enhanced "Edition 1" version from summer 2019 onwards.
The GA500 is a new and particularly compact addition to the current generation of inverter drives and is perfect for industrial applications. The handy inverter is said to offer 800 parameters and thus a wide range of functions that help provide the ideal solution for almost any drive application. Moreover, despite its versatility, it can be easily configured in five minutes by answering simple questions. Not only does the inverter’s ease of use greatly simplify the commissioning process in industrial production; it also significantly shortens it. What's more, the GA500 is designed to be compatible with all motor types, including permanent magnet motors.
The i3 mechatronics solution "YASKAWA Cockpit," which made its debut at last year's HANNOVER MESSE, is also making an appearance at the Yaskawa stand in 2019, as an upgraded "Edition 1" version of the software will be available to customers from summer 2019. This software can be used to capture data in real time from components, robots and entire systems - including products from third-party suppliers - and then display and evaluate the information thus generated in a visually appealing, easily understandable and meaningful way.
The fact that robotics play such an important role in achieving simple and flexible automation is clearly demonstrated in YASKAWA's wide range of robotic exhibits. The showcased solutions range from machine feeding systems and collaborative robots - some mobile and some mounted on an AGV (automated guided vehicle) - to a collection of planned products from YASKAWA's first line of robotics produced in Europe. Visitors to HANNOVER MESSE 2019 can also check out the prototype of a new and larger Motoman HC20 collaborative robot.

Find the ideal way to make a connection!
EISELE Pneumatics GmbH & Co. KG is at HANNOVER MESSE 2019 to showcase its full range of premium connectors for all industrial applications - with three innovations from the INOXLINE, LIQUIDLINE and MULTILINE E ranges taking center stage.
EISELE Pneumatics develops, produces and distributes premium quality solid metal connectors and, in the 80 years since it was founded, has cemented its position as a leading supplier of innovative connection solutions. The EISELE portfolio - manufactured almost entirely in Germany - comprises all important standard connection components such as push-in fittings, quick-release couplings and tube fittings, as well as numerous innovative products with USPs that set standards, such as an extensive line of multiple connectors. The company is at HANNOVER MESSE 2019 to showcase not just its complete high-quality range of hose and tube connectors for all industrial applications, but also to train the spotlight on three innovations.
One of these is a completely redesigned pressure regulator made of 1.4301 stainless steel. Used to reduce pressure, the screw-in connection from the EISELE INOXLINE product line keeps the pressure in a line constant within a range of two to eight bar. The flow-optimized pressure regulator also reduces vibration characteristics in regulating systems. Besides this addition to the stainless steel INOXLINE line, the LIQUIDLINE 2500 series made of dezincification-resistant brass is also being extended. The plug connectors with a larger nominal width are now - for the first time - being offered with a 28-millimeter external diameter and initially in three designs, complemented by compatible flame-retardant ProWeld polyether-polyurethane tubes that feature an internal diameter of 19 millimeters. As the biggest variant in the 2500 series to date, this innovation means that larger coolant supply lines running to automation plants can now make the most of all the benefits offered by EISELE plug screw joints. The third innovation on show is another M12 power plug for the MULTILINE E modular system. EISELE is extending the system for combining compressed air, vacuum, gases, coolants, liquids, electrics and electronics all in one connector body with a new L-coding insert for voltages up to 63 volts. The connector supplies up to 16 amps per pin and is resistant to shocks, vibration, polarity reversal and torsion. Thanks to the perfectly coordinated modular design of MULTILINE E, users have outstanding flexibility when it comes to integrating various hose diameters, connector types and media in one multiple coupling.
