Laempe – Big data meets foundry

How data analysis by the Digital Cockpit helps to optimise the core production process.

The baseline situation: Core production is subject to a large variety of influences. Especially in core production, there are situations in which apparently identical conditions produce different core qualities. This sub-process in the complex foundry process is subject to a large variety of influences. The main difficulty is that some of these influencing factors are still unknown and some of the known variables cannot be directly influenced. If the cause of the error is not obvious or known, cause analysis and troubleshooting are usually based on the experience of the employees and are only partially structured. The documentation of the troubleshooting steps is often neglected, so that a reproducibility of cause, measure and result is rarely given. Core production therefore faces the task of making processes more transparent.

The digital solution: The Digital Cockpit brings data transparency
The Digital Cockpit stands for data transparency, visualisation and digitisation in core production and has been developed together with pragmatic industries GmbH, a startup in which Laempe Mössner Sinto GmbH participates. The visualisation software can be used to display the most important key figures in core production, such as machine parameters, productivity, standstill detection, energy consumption and much more. By monitoring as many parameters as possible, parameter changes that can adversely affect the overall process of core production can be determined. Due to the Digital Cockpit’s permanent analysis of the system data, the overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) can be permanently calculated and is broken down into quality, machine performance and availability.
