Whilst Vision's laser and production systems already meet all the requirements of smart CPPE, we offer this intelligence of the future for old machinery or plants by other manufacturers too.
Only the integrated networking of all units involved in the production process allows for the required increase in efficiency and therefore higher output and lower production costs.
Vision's smart systems and optional connectors to, e.g. SAP Business One, SAP R/3 or SAP S/4HANA make your production transparent, controllable and monitorable.
The centralised control system's intelligent algorithms show you the sought-after ideal line for production and controls according to this, if required.
INDUSTRY 4.0 MADE IN GERMANY
We see Industry 4.0 as the top "Made in Germany" product as the driving force behind the German industry. And under this motto we are working worldwide with our partners on launching this industrial revolution.
Whilst the first and second industrial development was initially reserved for major production corporations, we have made it our job to also enable small and medium-sized enterprises to benefit from this innovative edge.
A GLIMPSE INTO THE SMART FACTORY
The different use cases in a smart factory
Special solutions for existing plants!
The smart combination of sensors, the continuous analysis of the acquired data and automated control based on the learned data.
Together with your employees' expertise the systems learn how to react quickly and directly to any eventualities in your production
and suggest the ideal line for production for you
We support you with the analysis, networking and control using CEP and ERP.
Locate objects in real-time
If you let machinery and objects communicate with each other digitally using standardised protocols and a digital image of your production all the elements involved in production can inform each other. Each production unit knows exactly when the material is ready or which production step follows next. Locate objects like transport containers, production batches or means of transport across your entire production.
The smart factory learns too
The asset of any enterprise is its employees’ experience. Intelligent systems learn too from your specialists, learn patterns of behaviour and can therefore react faster and more targeted than with a conventional TARGET/ACTUAL comparison.
We are shifting the quality checks previously carried out at the end of the production process into the actual production process and therefore receive this information sooner than before.
Detect the threat of machine failure early and prevent unnecessary and expensive downtime.
Our systems' smart predictive models save money thanks to targeted maintenance.
Get information about your production units' state of health through different communication channels and react in good time.
Thanks to the use of in-memory processing, sensor data is analysed and processed in real-time.
As a result of this you have real-time mapping of your production at any time and can access key figures any time and anywhere.
Whether you're a production manager or machine operator: our systems always keep you up-to-date.
This enables efficient controlling, targeted production planning and the best possible support for different machines.
In future you will always know what is going on in your company at any time.
We combine state-of-the-art technologies with existing structures.
Special solutions for existing plants!
BY CABLE OR WIRELESS
Depending on the local situation we offer a wide selection of different networking options.
SOFTWARE FOR PC, TABLETS OR WEARABLES
The system should adapt to you: that’s why we offer analysis and control across all hardware to suit your requirements.
SECURITY AND CONTROL 24/7
Smart systems never sleep: leave production control to a tireless system.
If you like you can save and share your production data across locations in a private Cloud. Your data is always secure.
LEARNING BY MAGIC
Smart systems learn from the best: your professionals. Decision-making patterns are not permanently programmed but are geared towards your specifications and examples.
INCREASED EFFICIENCY THAT PAYS OFF
Find your ideal line, discover untapped potential and increase your efficiency. It definitely pays off!
SECURITY IS GIVEN TOP PRIORITY
Your data and experience are your potential. Our systems have one important task: to keep your information secure.
TRIED AND TESTED 5-STAR TECHNOLOGY
You can rely on our systems – together with our strong partners we offer your customised solutions.
THE SMART FACTORY PLATFORM
Our innovative software is an integrated solution from the sensor to application.
In the factory
Our sensor systems collect various values, for example vibration, position, weight and much more from different plants, equipment, locations and transporters. In addition to the data from the production plants, a digital map of production is sent to the smart factory platform without interruption.
We have even developed special adapters for older plants to make them smart. Thanks to the use of familiar protocols and extendible interfaces there is even nothing to stand in the way of integrating customised solutions.
A modern real-time location system ensures that objects and even people can be located within the factory. It is even possible to notify people using this.
At the heart of the Smart Factory platform is blueCEP. Thanks to the use of state-of-the-art CEP and in-memory technologies all the incoming data is processed in real-time. Together with the historical data from data storage the integrated machine learning can instantly calculate predictions, modifications and patterns. The rule engine carries out actions based on this, e.g. by requesting maintenance or sending an alarm to an employee. As a result,
blueCEP can in turn independently control actuators in the factory.
In order to consider the resources, production process and work processes for these actions the process engine ensures that the allocated actions go to the right recipient. For this the system also uses production data from the Vision MES.
Lots of applications
The Smart Factory platform offers its services via a standardised interface for other systems. This allows, for example, for production orders to be sent directly from an ERP system to the platform. We deliberately use open and flexible interfaces so that it is not just existing but also future systems that can be connected.
The Smart Factory platform also includes various software connectors in different programming languages. Using these you can easily connect your own sensors to the platform on the one hand. On the other hand the integration of real-time data or querying historical data is also possible without any problems.
We give you news for Industry 4.0 and IoT!
We will be happy to personally advise you and present our solutions for you to you.

FOR EXISTING FACTORIES
Thanks to additionally available “smart connectors” our customers don’t only integrate machinery and systems from Vision Lasertechnik but universal hardware also allows them to integrate older machinery from other manufacturers and "non-smart devices"!!
Dangerous "bottlenecks" can only be avoided
using integrated concepts.
Together with you we analyse the weaknesses,
potential and solutions that make your production
more efficient and secure.
COMPATIBLE AND OPEN
Our systems grow with you; this means that you are well armed for the future too and can certainly take on the challenges of the future.
This also applies to machinery and plants from all manufacturers, regardless of the year of manufacture.
Thanks to our interdisciplinary partners we can offer the entire integration from sensors, to plants and production planning to ERP from one source.
We will take care of your request as soon as possible.!
