March 30, 2015 - Festo Didactic presents the CP Factory with the newly developed CPS Gate for production lines – a module for the communication of process data. Visit Festo Didactic in hall 15, booth D07 or in hall 24, in cooperation with the VDMA.

Digitalisation gives companies increasingly better ways of generating and communicating data from all areas of their order and production systems in real time, using it in production to increase both efficiency and flexibility. The enormous rise in the quantity of data and the complexity of networking plant and company areas requires developing products that make the flow of data easy to conceptualize and handle.

The CPS Gate is a fundamentally enhanced, intelligent module for the communication of process data. It is used in the CP Factory – a cyber-physical research and learning factory, which represents different stations of a real production facility in model form. The purpose of the factory is to test and develop the technologies and methods used in digitalization and network formation and taught to the skilled workers of the future at companies, universities and vocational colleges. The CPS Gate functions within the factory’s work stations as the elementary module for controlling the processes. It communicates in the network with the connected IT systems (ERP) and the production management system (MES) as well as all production-relevant data of the products being processed.
