Networking the entire metalworking process
With solutions for the entire metalworking process and viable concepts for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), we expedite your entry into smart automation. Start now to keep step with the digital world. The basis of IIoT is the availability of all relevant data in real-time, as well as the ability to create optimal value creation flow from this data at any point in time. Balluff sensors and system solutions ensure this availability. With our networking technology and connectivity solutions, the data can be collected and transported. All the data is interpreted and passed on to the higher level systems or the cloud.
Communication over IO-Link is a central component for successful networking on all levels. This digital standard collects data from the sensor/actuator level and makes this last meter communication-capable. Thanks to detailed diagnostic information, IO-Link enables intelligent condition monitoring and predictive maintenance. A centralized parameter setting means fast format and recipe changes, so you can meet requirements, such as lot size 1, flexibly and efficiently.
