SteigtUM! apromace participates in developing a urban concept for mobility based on micro mobiles

01. December 2019
Funding is beeing provided by the federal ministry of education and research (BMBF).

In Frame of the BMBF-funded activity for human-technic-interaction apromace data systems GmbH is engaged within the project ''Elektrische Kleinfahrzeuge für einen ganzheitlichen Lösungsansatz urbaner Mobilitätsprobleme (SteigtUM)''.

Together with the following partners:

  • Technische Universität Bergakademie Freiberg (network coordinator)
  • Fraunhofer Institute for Transportation and Infrastructure Systems IVI, Dresden
  • Technische Universität Chemnitz
  • Technische Universität Carolo-Wilhelmina zu Braunschweig
  • Projektionisten GmbH, Hannover
within the project SteigtUM a system for future mobility shall be developed, that consists of electrical compacts suitable for everyday use, a fully automated rent- and recharging infrastructure and a universal user interface.

The focused complete system will enable a individual, emission-free mobility and an upgrade with respect to flexibility for the individual public service vehicles (ÖPNV) to offer a cost-efficient, easily available and emission-free car-alternative to a broad range of people.

The second time, the partners of the innoUP-project did meet at ÖGI in Leiben to evaluate the second and to forecast the third year of the joint project.

This year, the apromace data systems GmbH took part with a guest lecture on ''Big Data Management und Thermische Analyse in Gießereien''. Furthermore, apromace offered the opportunity to take a look on the current foundry-MES-demonstration after the meeting.

On the 10th of october 2019 the 6th customer and prospective customer day of the apromace data systems GmbH took place at the August Horch Museum in Zwickau.

This year, presentations and talks were arranged within the sign of time. Starting with a project laying far away in the past, where establishing the cooperation did require a long time, the content bracket was stretched over a current project, that had to be started and handled very very fast to an outlook on future developments.

Perfecting our customer and prospective customer day 2019 was accomplished by two live connection in factories our customers as well as talks referring to a recent cyber-security solution and the ''curse of interruption'' that was highlighted in a more fluffily way.

The space between the different lectures did provide our guests from the automotive, foundry and chemical fiber industry the opportunity to discuss and to take a look on the current version of our foundry-MES-demonstration.

A two hour tour across the August Horch Museum did form the closure.

The apromace data systems GmbH wants to thank all lecturers, guests and associates of the August Horch Museum for a interesting and informative day.

apromace was showing its novel developments at the GIFA 2019 exhibition in Düsseldorf. Consequentially, based on the successful cooperation with the Technical Service Kuehn GmbH (TSK), both companies had their presentation at a shared booth.

With our top level slogan "Foundry 4.1" we did match the GIFA visitors requests. Digitalization, that was classified only as "nice to have" at the last GIFA exhibition in 2015, now is a generally used term but even today acquiring data does not end in itself.

Combining our advanced foundry-specific MES-solution apromaceGUSS with distinct metallurgic expertise indicates the foundry sectors silver bullet to fullfill the continuously rising requirements of an extremly tense market. Today, the coexistence of several systems is still state of the art in the foundry sector.

With our thermal analysis apromaceTA with various unique features we provide the optimal link to bring together an extensive process data acquisition with a metallurgical control circuit.

Visitors at our booth experienced a closed to reality demonstation of a digitalized foundry on up to four displays showing the complex interlock of all acquired data to achieve perfect transparency. One highlight for the visitors at our booth was the manual refinement of the cast iron melt. Here, a small deviation from the automatically calculated proposal becomes immediately manifested in the metallurgical composition of all boxes which were poured with that particular melt which was directly illustrated in our real time melt list. Representing several employed customer solutions, the complexity of the demonstration turns out to be our unique selling point at the GIFA 2019 that lead to numerous concrete requests.

Traceability of process data starting from the article to the melt, sand or core charge, the possible integration of wireless temperature measuring lances with included acquisition of measuring time and the corresponding location as well as the requested expertise in the field of unique metallurgical problems were brought together to perfect the scope of services that enable both companies, apromace and TSK, to possess wholistic as well as future-proof solutions for complexe problems.

apromace celebrating it's 15th birthday

09. January 2019

Today, the apromace data systems GmbH - born as a start-up from the Institute for automation technology of the TU Bergakademie Freiberg - is celebrating it's 15th birthday.

At this time, many wanted to know the meaning of "apromace". The name apromace had its basis in the acronym for Automated Production Management Center. Today, it is much easier. We can state, that we were doing industry 4.0 as this definition still was not born.

Today, bases on our successful cooperation with our european customers from various business we cover all requirements of a modern MES-system. Especially, we are very proud of the competitive advantage possessed by our traceability and thermal analysis modules. From our customers we know that even our MDE-Monitor, our BDE-Wishlist as well as the possible extend of our energy data aquisition turned the balance during their decition for a new MES-system.

We started with the idea to provide standardized solutions for as much as possible costumers. Today we know that one have to have powerful standard modules but our customers want a 100 % solution - 99.9 % is not sufficient! To develop a suitable solution that entirely fits to our customers requirements we take into consideration that one basic prerequisite is to understand the special production process in detail.

For this reason we are not a mass supplier of the shelf, but a strategic partner for that exclusive midsize and group companies all over europe, that put their trust into our software solutions. We want to be more than just a software supplier. Since we started 15 years ago, ALL our installed systems are in continuous operation, providing a basis for our activities in at least the next 15 years.

New year - novel business segment

01. January 2019

The apromace date systens GmbH wishes a healthy and successful new year 2019 to all customers, partners and prospective customers. Illustrating the consequent development of our business activities we now also provide modern technology for professional 3D optical measurement of constructional elements.

This technique is applicable not even in the original optical measurement of castings and other parts but have huge overlap with documentation of approval requirement parts, with quality management, root cause analysis of process deviations and others. It strenghtens our competence in processes and it interacts with our modules apromaceQDE as well as our industrial solution apromaceGUSS.

Thereby, we take into consideration our customers requests for developing complex approaches with qualified partners.

Self-evident, this service can be provided to customers that do not have our apromaceMES as well. Here, integration of the FZG Ingenieurdienstleistungen enables a large area of applications.
