Savio way for Industry 4.0
Extended process monitoring along the textile value chain
Industry 4.0 is the actual trend of automation and data exchange in manufacturing technologies. Connectivity, data management, remote machine set-up and operator real time interactivity: this is the Savio way for smart solutions for textile mills.
Nowadays, Savio product development is focused on “smart” components that must transmit data online.
The new possibilities offered by the connection of the machines translates into the different levels of Savio Industrial IoT, with the possibility of progressive sophistication (Basic, Business or Executive). Three different levels of Savio Industrial IoT: different option levels, each corresponding to a different dose of Industry 4.0 applied to Savio textile winding machinery, from simple connectivity and machinery data downloading, to remote machine setup, to operator real-time interactivity.
The leap in quality of textile machinery is evident in the new control systems, which allow for example employees to receive alarm signals directly to their wrist by smartwatch. When one of the winding machines present a problem, the anomaly signal is sent to the operator through a smartwatch, Savio Smart Bracelet, able to communicate also the type of intervention required, thus minimizing the break downtimes of machine.
Savio Winder 4.0 is a data management system, a very modern and important tool, relieving mill operators of time-consuming routine work. Thanks to data analytics, a wealth of data are available, allowing to manage the different production phases in the best possible way and to monitor all significant parameters anytime and anywhere, making use of mobile devices. All these features enable Savio customers to control overall equipment effectiveness, increase workforce efficiency, and maximize quality and working time.
Services are even going mobile. Another direction of technological development concerns maintenance, with numerous systems already connected in real time with the assistance network, to minimize intervention times, also through remote actions via software without having to send technicians on site.
Savio Winder 4.0 is also meant as communication between machine operator and service specialist in case of need.
