In addition to the classical product innovations, the development work of DMG MORI SEIKI increasingly focuses on optimisation of customer processes. In this context, the world premiere of CELOS at the EMO in Hanover marks a turning point for many companies. Due to the fact that CELOS simplifies and accelerates the process from the idea to the finished product and also forms the basis of paperless manufacturing. In addition, CELOS APPs provide the user with integrated and digitised management, documentation and visualisation of order, process and machine data. Furthermore, CELOS is compatible with PPS and ERP systems, can be networked with CAD / CAM applications and is ready for future-oriented CELOS APP extensions.
CELOS is available for all new high-tech machines by DMG MORI SEIKI. First deliveries will already be made from the second quarter 2014. At first glance, CELOS provides the user with a standardised user interface with touch functio-nality. But CELOS is much more than that with many more functionalities. Of crucial additional benefit to the customer are the different CELOS APPs like STATUS MONITOR, JOB MANAGER or JOB ASSISTANT.
The STATUS MONITOR is the starting point for the interaction between operator and machine. Here, CELOS visualises the current monitoring of the machine with regard to the process, additionally supplies important key performance indicators on the current order as well as on the order progress, and notifies the operator with special icons as well as text messages about any errors or upcoming maintenance work.
During the machining process, the CELOS STATUS MONITOR visualises the current monitoring of the machine with regard to the process, additionally supplies important key performance indicators on the current job as well as on the job progress. Moreover, the STATUS MONITOR notifies the operator with special icons as well as text messages about any errors or upcoming maintenance work.
JOB MANAGER and JOB ASSISTANT support the worker on the machine with regard to network-integrated planning, preparing, optimising and systematic processing of new machining jobs.
First of all, all manufacturing-relevant data for the NC program, workpiece, tools, clamping devices etc. can be combined to a machining job and instantly visualised with the JOB MANAGER. The documents, data and information required for an order can also be managed in a structured way. For example, the data are quickly available during later processing or for a recurring order.
With JOB ASSISTANT, the digitally processed orders can then be systematically filed at a later stage. In this process, first of all the availability of all NC programs and equipment (tools, devices etc.) required for machining is checked. The operator is then guided through the setup process and preparation of the machining job by a dialog. Respective queries and necessary confirmations ensure that the worker makes no mistakes. Only then, machining is approved. This ensures a high degree of machining reliability even for complex orders or complicated components.
Apart from the advantages for the user, the integrated interaction of JOB MANAGER and JOB ASSISTANT also demonstrates the excellent scalability of CELOS for very different company sizes. Small companies with a high level of personal responsibility of the workers particularly benefit from the option of paperless production. On the other hand, already widely networked large companies can optimally organise and use the different competencies of their employees through these two production applications of CELOS’ application. This is because a skilled worker can first decidedly prepare all orders in JOB MANAGER. The machine operator is then instructed and guided by the JOB ASSISTANT in detail. The respective access rights can be organised via the customisable status of the new SMARTkey®, with which each employee needs to login at the 21.5” ERGOline®.
After the personalised login via SMARTkey, the user is guided to the APP SELECTOR, where 12 different CELOS APPS are activated with a single touch of a finger on the multi-touch-screen of the 21.5’’ ERGOline. Individual user rights (such as full admin rights or “just” the right to process jobs)C can be set in the SETTINGS APP.
During EMO no less than 12 different CELOS APPs will already be available, which can be started centrally via the APP SELECTOR. This also includes the CONTROL APP. With this CELOS APP, DMG MORI SEIKI provides its customers with the option to switch to the usual control environment of the respective CNC by tipping once on the respective icon on the multitouch screen of the 21.5” ERGOline®. For starting, CONTROL APP is available with controls of SIEMENS (with OPERATE 4.5 on Sinumerik 840D solutionline) and MITSUBISHI (with MAPPS V) .
At EMO, DME MORI SEIKI will present CELOS with CNCs from SIEMENS (with OPERATE 4.5 on Sinumerik 840D solutionline) and MITSUBISHI (with MAPPS V) .
