Mitsubishi Electric will showcase its innovative technologies and solutions for more sustainable production through energy and resource efficiency at EMO 2023.
Mitsubishi Electric will participate in EMO 2023, one of the world’s leading trade fairs for production technology, taking place in Hannover, Germany, from September 18 to 23. Under the theme of sustainability, Mitsubishi Electric will present pioneering innovations for more sustainable production at booth C42 in Hall 9. Visitors will have the opportunity to learn about the smart manufacturing world, IoT solutions, and the company’s services in these areas.
At the fair, Mitsubishi Electric will demonstrate a simulated abstract production line supported by EDM machine automation. This demonstration will illustrate how new software tools and advanced automation in a fully networked smart manufacturing environment can help companies make sustainable progress in the era of Industry 4.0. The simulated production line will be continuously monitored and evaluated by NC Optimizer, allowing real-time tracking and analysis of energy and resource consumption. This enables companies to reduce energy consumption and material waste while increasing production efficiency. The NC Virtual Simulator integrated into the production line also serves as a virtual testing machine, reducing material and tool consumption significantly.
Mitsubishi Electric takes another step towards more sustainable production with the introduction of the “Tool Wear Diagnosis Software” at the fair. This software, based on built-in algorithms, allows more accurate and efficient monitoring of tool wear, optimizing production processes and reducing resource consumption.
As part of its strong focus on sustainability, Mitsubishi Electric highlights the extension of service life and circular economy as central components of its service concept. By retrieving and renewing faulty parts, transforming them into nearly new products, Mitsubishi Electric ensures the long-term and reliable availability of high-quality spare parts for up to 40 years. The service concept also minimizes waste and maximizes resource efficiency. As an example at EMO, the maintenance cycle of an MDS-C drive will be showcased. In modern repair processes, components printed by 3D printers are also used. All these solutions clearly demonstrate Mitsubishi Electric’s expertise in advanced manufacturing techniques.
Mitsubishi Electric offers CNC controllers, drives, and motors from a single source as a project partner, emphasizing its comprehensive solution competence.
