Redwave, a division of BT-Wolfgang Binder GmbH, Graz, Austria, has introduced Redwave Mate. The company says it is the first system to measure quality and to record and analyze information during production. Collected data are used for monitoring and to ensure optimal plant and sorting operations.
Artificial intelligence not only increases plant availability and sorting efficiency, it also maximizes yield and purity, Redwave says, because sorting machines communicate with one another in real time. Monitoring across platforms makes the flow of information manageable, the company adds.
The Redwave 2i technology presented in 2018 was based on machine learning and artificial intelligence. This technology links sensors of different types. Predictive parameterization and further steps toward artificial intelligence have resulted in Redwave Mate, which is designed to:
- optimize plant and sorting operations;
- improve and optimize sorting rate and final output quality;
- increase plant availability and sorting efficiency;
- monitor material flows across platforms;
- compare individual machine data and recommend parameterization;
- makes data immediately available to plant managers; and
- exports and processes data.
Redwave Mate is available on common mobile devices.
Managing Director Mag. Silvia Schweiger-Fuchs says, “In Redwave Mate we have combined artificial intelligence with data, analytics and automation in order to be able to offer our customers the best possible transparency of their machines and plants. Access or monitoring and communication with your plants and machines is possible anytime, anywhere.”
Austria-based Redwave maintains branch offices in Germany, China, Singapore and the USA.
