The CLOOS C-Gate is a digitization platform where users can access information from their welding production in real-time. All information is entered and processed centrally in an integrated information and communication tool. The customized presentation of information enables detailed visualization, analysis and continued processing of the operating and welding process data collected. This allows users to monitor and control their production processes down to the smallest detail. Early recognition of errors prevents unplanned downtimes and quality problems are solved directly. With open interfaces (APIs) and standards such as OPC/UA, the system can be easily and securely integrated into existing network and application environments (MES, ERP). Whether as central virtual server solution or as system-near edge-gateway implementation – all CLOOS robot systems and welding machines can be connected to the platform. Furthermore, existing CLOOS systems and welding machines can be integrated. Thus the C-Gate supports users in their digitization and smart factory projects.
The C-Gate consists of several modules which can be activated depending on your individual digitization strategy.
The new quality management module focuses on the individual component with the production and welding process data. Here, a detailed assessment of the weld quality is already possible during welding. For complex and chained systems, quality statements are made for each production stage in addition. The determined data are summarized in a component protocol and can be called up via the report function or via OPC-UA or REST interface. Thus, users get an optimum support for their quality management system and the implementation of welding quality requirements.
