Cognitive T-slot sensor concept: Increasing forming machine efficiency with cognitive transformation of industrial processes

Forming presses are widely used as key elements of industrial production processes. The purchasing costs of these machines can reach double-digit millions. Given such a high level of investment, buyers expect machinery of this kind to keep running efficiently for a long time without any loss in quality.

At the Hannover Messe 2022, the Fraunhofer Cluster of Excellence Cognitive Internet Technologies CCIT will demonstrate the new cognitive T-slot sensor concept smartNotch, which can be used to improve the efficiency of forming machines (Hall 5, Booth A06).

Forming machines are used as an example for showcasing a solution in which cognitive internet technologies ensure consistently transparent processes and, as a result, enhance overall equipment effectiveness.


Using data and creating new insights

Usage conditions can be attached to the data obtained through smartNOTCH, giving machine users the ability to decide who they want to share forming press data with, for what purpose and under what conditions. Networked processing chains are formed across regional, national and international company boundaries.

When data sovereignty is assured, and intellectual property (IP) along with it, data silos can be compiled. Users, manufacturers and suppliers of forming machines can then apply machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) methods to the aggregated data, giving rise to new insights into the performance and error susceptibility of the machines.

Intelligent capturing, secure sharing and systematic evaluation of data can also allow new business models to emerge, enabling manufacturers and suppliers, for example, to provide their customers with not only hardware, but also smart services based on data.

The Hannover Messe exhibit will put the smartNOTCH at the forefront: A forming press demonstrator provides visitors with live insights into how a cognitive T-slot works.
