Industrie 4.0 – The future has begun

Smart air

There's no two ways about it, the fourth industrial revolution is here. Our 'Industrie 4.0' concept allows us to plan, implement, operate, and optimise your compressed air supply individually and digitally. We provide smart compressed air with greater efficiency than ever before.

Kaeser Kompressoren provides Industrie 4.0 solutions for the compressed air sector.

Why smart?

In ultra flexible 'Industrie 4.0' production environments, intelligently networked Kaeser compressed air systems reliably provide the necessary compressed air volumes and quality required to meet the needs of any application. Moreover, potential issues in the compressed air network are detected very early on, so that specific service calls can be arranged before a fault even occurs. This is made possible with real-time information. Production efficiency and flexibility can therefore be increased as a whole.

The heart of compressed air 4.0

The SIGMA AIR MANAGER 4.0 and its four key advantages:

  • Variable adjustment of compressed air control for custom-tailored series production.
  • Exceptional efficiency through continuous real-time monitoring and optimisation.
  • Maximum availability through remote diagnostics, predictive maintenance and the prevention of critical conditions.
  • Future-proof thanks to various interfaces, easy updates, and integrated energy management in accordance with ISO 50001.

Questions and answers

How secure is digital networking with KAESER?

  • Compressor performance data are only transmitted via the closed SIGMA NETWORK. Third-party access to your data is not possible. All structures meet the recommendations of the German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI).
  • The automatic fault management of the SIGMA AIR MANAGER 4.0 remains operational even during power failures. Should this occur, the compressors switch to independent regulation.

What are the advantages of Predictive Maintenance?

  • Flexible demands on a compressed air supply system require flexible service. Traditional maintenance that relies on firmly defined service intervals quickly reaches its limits. Furthermore, dynamic maintenance reduces costs in accordance with actual demand.
  • The SIGMA AIR MANAGER 4.0 continuously delivers all operational and environmental parameters to the KAESER DATA CENTER in real-time. Using specially-programmed expert tools, irregularities are detected at an early stage and costly downtime can be prevented as a result.

What does continuous analysis of performance data mean for system effectiveness?

  • By monitoring important operating parameters, such as airend discharge temperature, pressure dewpoint, or differential pressures, compressed air system efficiency can be kept in the optimum range at all times.
  • Thanks to real-time transfer and analysis, information is always up-to-the-minute and even reflects the most sudden of adjustments to production.
  • You will always be made aware in good time of factors that could lead to a fault; necessary countermeasures can then be taken accordingly.
