Cooperation towards industry 4.0
Sick AG is an original partner of Axoom, an IT service provider founded by the laser and machine tool manufacturer Trumpf. Axoom offers a digital business platform for manufacturing companies that are steadily paving the way toward industry 4.0. Logistics processes are at the heart of this cooperation.
Sick sensor technology provides the data which allows Axoom users to present their business processes clearly and make better decisions at every stage of the value-added chain based on intelligent information. To this end, Axoom and Sick are working together on developing the ideal ways to integrate Sick sensors into the digital platform.
Sensor intelligence enables industry 4.0
"The added value of industry 4.0 is only afforded by solid and reliable information”, explains Bernhard Müller, Management Board Industry 4.0 at Sick AG. "Together with Axoom, we are integrating this intelligent sensor information seamlessly and directly at company control level. And when you look at it like that, it's fair to say that sensor intelligence enables industry 4.0.”
Florian Weigmann, CEO at Axoom, goes on to add: "Axoom is easy to operate, capable of connecting all machine manufacturers, and offers scope for expansion on a modular basis. It also comes with extra added value in the form of partner solutions. This is exactly why we're delighted to have Sick AG as a partner to work with us on our journey toward industry 4.0.”
