Case Study of Digitization of the Production Cell
This paper focuses on the introduction of digitization in the production process. When deploying Industry-Oriented 4.0 components in the plant, emphasis is placed on HMI and workplace visualization. Designing a suitable way to visualize data obtained from the production process can have a significant impact on the workplace response. Timely and properly conducted responses to potential changes in the production process have a positive impact on the resulting quality of the production process. Continuous development of the elements of virtual and augmented reality also increases their usability in the field of data visualization from the production process. These technologies make it possible to meet the high demands on the clarity of a great deal of information.
This paper introduces the creation of a production cell into virtual and augmented reality. Particular emphasis is placed on the way of data visualization, including the environment, geometric accuracy of the CNC machine tool, and information from the safety parts. For efficient information handling, access to their display in virtual and augmented reality has been chosen.
The first part of the publication introduces methods for creating a virtual model based on photogrammetry. In the second part of the publication, procedures are presented for collecting and visualizing information on the geometric accuracy of the machine. Finally, procedures related to the risk analysis and functional safety of CNC machine tools are presented. In conclusion, the advantages, disadvantages, and recommendations of the presented solution, the critical places and the difficulty with the realization of the virtual workplace are referred to.
