IT infrastructure and the use of data are ubiquitous. At SKZ, too, the use of data from plastics processing and testing processes plays a crucial role. In recent years, the possibilities for using this information have developed greatly and despite this, or perhaps because of it, every user faces a multitude of challenges. In order to be able to exploit the corresponding potentials, we deal with many different technologies for data acquisition (Industry 4.0, shop-floor networking, IIoT), management software systems (MES, LIMS, ERP), data analysis and machine learning (AI) as well as data visualisation up to virtual and augmented reality (VR, AR).

Data analysis and process modelling

We are experienced in using different tools for data analysis and data-based process modelling. We evaluate your real process data according to your targets, assess their quality and create process models.

Digitisation consulting

Through our activities, we have a good overview of available digital tools and technologies. We support you in selecting the appropriate technology for your problem and know the right partner for the implementation.

Sensor integration and test engineering

Do you want to obtain information about your production processes and manufactured components that is not visible to the naked eye? The integration of suitable measuring and testing technology often helps here. By combining our in-depth application-specific plastics knowledge with that of sensor technology, we create holistic solutions that are well received on the market. Contact us and we will also find a suitable sensor technology for you.

Technical equipment

Shop floor data acquisition and analysis

We operate a continuously developing system for the acquisition of all process data in the compounding and extrusion technology centre. For this purpose, we develop appropriate tools for data analysis.

Digital infrastructure

The SKZ has a modern infrastructure, both wired and wireless, for easy networking of equipment and processes. This is continuously kept up to date and forms the basis for many digitalisation projects. Appropriate server systems with suitable, professional software are available for processing and analysing even complex data.

Digital injection moulding cell

Together with partners from industry and research, we are establishing a competence center for digitalisation in the field of injection moulding. In addition to machine data, which is continuously generated during production, necessary data from peripheral devices and component quality are to be automatically recorded, processed and evaluated by means of inline measuring systems. We offer a platform to make your company Industry 4.0-capable.
