A reliable and continuous monitoring of all use case machines is one of the most important task in Twin-Control. Overall, in Twin-Control six industrial use case machines (three at Renault, three at MASA), three laboratory use case machines (TU Darmstadt, TEKNIKER, ARTIS) and three Pilot-line use case machines (ETA Factory Darmstadt, Factory of the Future Sheffield, Basque AMC Bilbao) Read more
FAG VarioSense bearings — a combination of a standard rolling bearing and a sensor cluster — provide several sensor signals for monitoring machines and processes in one compact unit. And they offer a combination of different measured values which can be adapted to specific applications in a standard envelope.

Manufacturing is getting smart. Companies are increasingly using sensors and wireless technologies to capture data at all stages of a product’s life. These range from material properties and the temperatures and vibrations of equipment to the logistics of supply chains and customer details. Truck engines beam back data on speed, fuel consumption and oil temperature to manufacturers and fleet operators. Optical scanners are used to spot defects in printed electronics circuits1.
