Application examples

The application examples section includes some projects which have been developed with ADDI-DATA products in many different industry sectors.


Increasing the productivity of a flake board production facility

A manufacturer of flake boards has the following objectives for the modernisation of his production facility: Save material, glue and energy costs, reduce the wear of the grinding belts and optimise the time for the press process in order to improve the productivity of the complete manufacturing process. Read more

Optimisation of the traverse path

A manufacturer of CNC milling machines wants to optimise the traverse path of his machines and their speed and precision. The mechanical wear of the axes is also to be considered. Read more

Temperature monitoring

In steelmaking the temperature is an important parameter. Therefore it must be precisely measured and monitored. Read more

Monitoring of a tools motor current

In order to avoid damages on the tool, the work piece and the machine the motor current shall be measured and the force with which the tool touches the work piece shall be established. Read more

ABS test bench

A test bench for the test of ABS devices is created. It simulates a breaking process in order to check the functional ability of the control device. One of the important facts to be found out is which force is achieved at which point of the pedal travel. The acquired data is to be compared with set point values. Read more

Exact positioning of a magnetic resonance tomograph (MRT)

The table of a magnetic resonance tomograph (MRT) for 3D scans is to be positioned precisely in order to be able to correctly assign the pictures to each position. A reference run is not possible as this would cause a considerable delay after switching on the MRT. Read more

Control of rotary folding machines

In rotary folding machines a precise movement of the paper during the work process is necessary to avoid that the paper gets torn. The challenge is the exact positioning of the secondary axes in a way that they can precisely and continuously execute the predefined machining pattern, even at high speed. Read more

Monitoring of a tools motor current

In order to avoid damages on the tool, the work piece and the machine the motor current shall be measured and the force with which the tool touches the work piece shall be established. Read more

Temperature regulation for the production of wafers

During the production process, a wafer has to go through several temperature stages, which must be regulated in order to avoid wasting the expensive material. Read more

Test device for gear wheels for watches

A manufacturer of watches is looking for new measurement electronics that are suitable for a manual testing device as well as for a transportable solution for the measurement of the surface of gear wheels. Read more

Simple measurement device for gear wheels

A manual test station shall be replaced by a modern and easy-to-use measuring system. The goal is to improve the accuracy of the measurement and to avoid errors which occur when measurement values are entered manually. Read more

Measurement of a spherical roll

Length and maximum diameter of a spherical roll are to be detected. For this, a system consisting of pairs of transducers facing each others is mounted on a ring, through which the object is pulled. Read more

Optimisation of the press process

In order to optimise the press process and to reduce defective parts the press depth of a press shall be monitored cycle-dependently. As an installation close to the press is necessary, the system has to be resistant to shocks and vibrations. Read more
