Visualization for HMI on machines

Use the 3DViewStation as part of the human-machine interface (HMI) for visualization on machines

Nowadays, most medium and large machines are equipped with integrated computers. They have their own screens (some of them touch displays), used to control and monitor the machine. However, every machine also has design data - usually in 3D – and documentation for commissioning and maintenance as well as for rectifying any faults that may occur. So, what could be more obvious than combining all of these things? With a 3DViewStation running on the machine, 3D CAD data can be reused and leveraged. In the event of an error, the user not only sees that an error is occurring, but they can also see where exactly within the machine the problem is located. The user has the CAD data that belongs to the exact machine configuration, available in a lightweight representation, onsite and navigates the application graphically to the correct position. The geometry can be used to retrieve real-time, as well as, historical data. The documentation relevant to solving the problem, is available as 3D models, videos or classic PDF instructions.

In the age of Industry 4.0/IoT, there is also the option to run a central solution that monitors and controls several machines at the same time and can also alert service technicians.
