A new line control solution is making it possible to manage the entire AMADA CS rack storage system via the machine controller, including the database connection and AMADA IoT Support.
AMADA is currently developing a new system solution with a simplified user interface for laser cutting systems equipped with MPF automation and an interface to an AMADA CS storage system. This connects the AMADA AMNC 3i FMS machine controller and the CS storage system’s AMADA V-factory IS controller. “In this configuration, the AMADA CS rack storage system can be controlled, inspected and managed directly via the machine controller,” explains Lukas Pollok, Software Application Engineer at AMADA GmbH. “It is a fully integrated solution that is simple and intuitive to operate.”
The AMADA AMNC 3i FMS machine controller and the AMADA V-factory IS, which is used to control the rack storage system, can also be integrated in the AMADA VPSS 3i software and therefore the central vsdd database. This means: All externally programmed material information and pallet plans can be combined to produce standardized material master data which can be used directly in the storage system. To permit data exchange with external systems, it is also possible to take account of various file formats such as the CSV or XML file types. In the future, the entire solution will be supported by AMADA IoT Support and extended to include other AMADA production systems.
