Our Proway Smart Factory Solutions

Machines, products, people and systems must be linked and networked in the age of digitalization in order to meet the industry standard 4.0 and enable extensive automation of processes. With our Gamma Magic Cube, entire machine parks can be organized and controlled in real time. Only in this way entire production lines can be operated efficiently in the future.

Operating Principle

Benefits of a Smart Factory

  • Lean and optimized processes
  • Reduced production costs
  • Higher machine utilization
  • Maintenance and support
  • Transparent data processing
  • Connection to further applications
  • Reduced production times
  • Increase in productivity
  • Less storage costs
  • Transparent supply chain
  • Reduced personnel costs in production
  • More production flexibility
  • Faster adaptation of production processes
  • Shorter time to market launch times for new products
  • Quick adaptation to new or changed product requirements
  • Increased delivery reliability

Intelligent data preparation using the Gamma Magic Cube

  • Data recording, data collection, and production control is performed in real time
  • Predictive maintenance in real time:
    • Condition monitoring of the machine
    • Automatic messages when limit values are exceeded or undercut
    • Notes in case of machine wear and tear
    • All machine data are documented during lifetime
    • Maintenance intervals are monitored automatically

One of the major challenges of the Smart Factory is the huge amount of data that machines store when processing individual processes. With the Gamma Magic Cube the accumulated volumes of data can be managed, purged, sorted out and individually stored and distributed. The Gamma Magic Cube handles the data processing.

Central monitoring of machines at different locations is possible. Test results from other sites are transmitted directly to the head office so that the data can be integrated into production.
