Italpresse Gauss takes latest R&D to Euroguss 2018

Published

Italpresse Gauss will showcase two years of research and development at Euroguss 2018 in January.

The biennial international trade exhibition for the die casting sector will be held in Nuremberg, Germany. It provides an opportunity for Italpresse Gauss to share technological advances in die casting against a backdrop of the rapid adoption of Industry 4.0 in the sector.

At the last Euroguss in 2016, Italpresse Gauss presented the mobile version of HMe, a machine control system with advanced data management and diagnostics capabilities developed by Italpresse together with Wonderware, the global leading industrial software brand by Schneider Electric.

The mobile version enables users to control the whole die casting cell from a mobile device, providing access to the machine’s real-time status and live production data.

The co-operation between Italpresse Gauss and Wonderware continued and – over the past two years -  led to the development of Italpresse Gauss’s powerful AMe app for live remote maintenance and service assistance.

The AMe Interactive Assistant boosts maintenance efficiency and speed of trouble-shooting by enabling maintenance workers to establish a live video connection with an Italpresse Gauss expert, access drawings and machine documentation, and follow maintenance guides on screen - all via a tablet.

Both HMe and AMe are part of a wider effort at Norican Group to connect man and machine, equipment and processes in the spirit of Industry 4.0.

Italpresse Gauss will be showcasing the AMe Interactive Assistant at Euroguss, giving visitors the opportunity to experience the new tool.

The team will be at booth 514, hall 7.
