Industry 4.0 in the aggregate
Process optimization of your CNC production
Cost reduction - Performance enhancement - Process optimization
In order for your CNC machining centre and your ATEMAG unit to achieve ideal and maximum performance, it is necessary to use all the potential for improvement of the unit. This is easily done with the use of the ATEMAG Control 4.0 chip, which is attached directly to the aggregate. The high-tech sensors of the data chip collect the process data of the unit and transmit them to the user in real time. The machine operator thus has access to the following current data:
Due to the timely detection of critical parameters, adjustments can be made by the user to the unit, the tools and the CNC machine and the performance of the unit can be maximized - by regularly checking the control variables, you increase the service life of the unit and optimize production processes.
Ensure trouble-free use of your CNC machine and use the service intervals recommended by the Control 4.0 software, which enable timely and plannable maintenance and prevent unwanted downtime.
Increasing the performance of the CNC
Service life of the aggregate
The Control 4.0 chip's permanent communication with the unit records load fluctuations, which are constantly transmitted to the user in real time via a data stick using Bluetooth and WLAN. The machine operator can intervene in the process based on the data. Based on the transmitted data of the Control 4.0 chip, which can be viewed by the machine operator at any time, parameters for process optimization can be adjusted at any time. The targeted change of the operating parameters makes it possible to achieve maximum performance.
The performance data of the unit are permanently monitored and analyzed by the sensors of the Control 4.0 chip and, if critical parameters are exceeded, communicated directly to the machine operator, who is then alerted to malfunctions and can take corrective action by changing the parameters.
Machining can be continued or stopped with changed parameters. At the same time, the service life of the unit is increased, as unintentional damage to the unit is prevented.
In order to produce cost-efficiently, high quantities are required. These can only be achieved with optimal settings of the unit and with regular maintenance, whereby wear parts are checked and replaced if necessary. The operating hours counter of the control chip reports service intervals recommended by ATEMAG in real time, so that the maintenance of the unit can be planned and failures can be prevented. The maintenance schedule is thus guaranteed to be precise, smooth and cost-effective.
Through an implemented infrastructure, each control 4.0 sensor can be monitored anywhere in the world at the customer's request. By means of analysis test runs, the status of a control 4.0 sensor can be determined via remote maintenance. Based on this, a qualified decision can then be made as to whether maintenance is recommended.

Industry 4.0 - Good to know
The Control 4.0 chip is attached directly to your aggregate and provides constant, near real-time data via a data stick using Bluetooth and WiFi.
The high-tech sensors of the ATEMAG Control 4.0 chip can record precise data of the aggregate. Based on this data, the machine operator can recognize whether critical parameters have been reached and settings on the machine should be changed or if the aggregate should be serviced.
The ATEMAG Control 4.0 technology determines the following performance data during the processing times:
- rotation speed (rpm)
- working hours
The ATEMAG Control 4.0 chip communicates constantly with the aggregate and records load fluctuations. These are constantly transmitted to the cloud in near real time via a data stick using Bluetooth and WLAN. Based on that data, the machine operator can intervene in the process if necessary.
Based on the data transmitted by the Control 4.0 chip, which can be viewed by the machine operator at any time, the aggregate can be accessed individually to change parameters for process optimization. This targeted modification of the operating parameters allows the aggregate to be brought to maximum performance in a controlled manner, which in turn is beneficial for the optimization of the production capacity.
The operating hours counter integrated in the Control 4.0 chip reports all service intervals recommended by ATEMAG.
This allows the machine operator to plan the timely maintenance of the aggregate, thus avoiding unwanted downtime. This way the implementation of a precise, smooth and cost-effective maintenance plan can be ensured.
The sensors of the ATEMAG Control 4.0 chip permanently monitor the performance data of the aggregate in near real time. The data collected in the chip is analyzed and transmitted to the Cloud. If critical parameters are exceeded, the Control 4.0 technology communicates directly with the machine operator and points out malfunctions. The machine operator can then take corrective action by changing the parameters. This prevents unwanted damage to the aggregate.
Thanks to the implemented cloud of the Control 4.0 chip, each aggregate can be monitored anywhere in the world at the customer's request.
Analysis test runs are then used to determine the status of the aggregate to be monitored.
Based on the data obtained during remote maintenance, the customer is then informed when maintenance is recommended.
In addition, the customer can be brought attention to about load fluctuations so that he can change the operating parameters in time to achieve maximum performance.
