AMADA MIYACHI AMERICA Announces Digital Transformation of Equipment in Response to Digital Revolution in Manufacturing

Press release date: Jul 10, 2017

Ease of integration with Fieldbus industrial computer network protocols

MONROVIA, CA – AMADA MIYACHI AMERICA INC., a leading manufacturer of resistance welding, laser welding, marking, cutting, and micro machining equipment and systems, announces the digital transformation of its laser and resistance equipment. The digital transformation will promote ease of integration with Fieldbus industrial computer network protocols used for real-time distributed control in factory automation systems. Paving the way for the Industry 4.0 trend of automation and data exchange in manufacturing technologies, the digital transformation means AMADA MIYACHI AMERICA equipment can now better interface with the entire factory rather than one particular machine.

First to be converted is the IS Series mid-frequency inverter resistance welding control family, followed by the LMF Series of fiber laser markers and the LWMS fiber laser processing workstation. The LF family of fiber laser micro welders and other products will be converted within the next few months.

AMADA MIYACHI AMERICA machines can use both the EtherNet/IP plant wide network made by Allen-Bradley® and the PROFINET® Ethernet standard for automation by Siemens®. Other common industrial protocols are available upon request.

The updated equipment can be more easily integrated into a range of industrial control products rather than requiring programming of individual interfaces. A standard interface is provided to the PLC controller, removing much of the effort of controlling the AMADA MIYACHI AMERICA machines. The common platform interface significantly reduces integration costs and makes the system easier to use and maintain.

Additional cutting edge industrial internet of things (IIoT) offerings will be added to the product line in the coming months. For more information, visit the AMADA MIYACHI AMERICA website at http://www.amadamiyachi.com/.
