INTEGRATE Success Stories

Industry 4.0 and SmartFactory are terms which have been doing the rounds for several years now. Diverse further technologies are linked to the two terms, like Big Data, Internet of Things (IoT) or Machine to Machine (M2M). It's not so easy to gain an overview.

INTEGRATE is involved in the development of a smart factory system with several mandates. The aim of the customer is the autonomous performance of contracts. The machines are networked with each other from production hall to offices and exchange information without human intervention. An employee creates an order on their computer and forwards this to the workshop. After a quick check the machines take over. A robot arm takes metal sheets from the cassette they are stored in and feeds it to the next work step. The employee who created the order defined whether the sheet is to be bent, pressed, cut to size or welded. The system has all the necessary specifications and processes each operation precisely. An autonomous transport device ensures transport between the individual operations, feeding the component to the right machine at the right time. INTEGRATE supports the customer in developing a user interface to operate the peripheral devices. The goal is always to create a user interface which is as manageable as possible and enables intuitive operation. Thanks to user-oriented programming the training time for new employees is shorter. Modern visualization systems and current technologies are used in the development.

Technologies and work methods used: 

  • Windows, .Net,
  • React, Docker
  • OPC-UA
  • UML, SCRUM, agile
  • SW-Architektur, Testing

Operating Laser Machines

The challenge facing our experts was based on the many years of development of the application. Customers were increasingly having problems with the extensive and complex programming. Our developers supported the customer in modifying and simplifying the software construct and introduced new working methods. Since then, our customer has worked with Scrum and achieves their targets within the desired timeframe thanks to efficient sprints.

INTEGRATE developers have been involved in this project for over three years now and have assumed a leading position in the further development of the software.The application co-developed by INTEGRATE controls among others 2D laser machines, that our customer sells around the world. In addition to laser machines that cut sheet metal elements, diverse other work steps are fully automated. In so-called bending cells, for example, a machine shapes sheet metal as desired. Welding cells connect the cut or bent parts and robot arms with suction cups bring the individual parts into the right position when changing the material, or transport the finished elements on pallets, to then pack and ship them. A central control device operates and configures the diverse cells. So our customer's technicians control the entire production process of the various machines via one application. Hundreds of parameters, like the speed or sequence of operations can be defined at the touch of a button.

Control of Diagnostic Instruments

Since the beginning of 2003 INTEGRATE has worked closely with a customer in the pharmaceutical industry. The cooperation started with the maintenance of existing software, developed for analyzers. At the time cooperation focused on the detection of chemical substances like enzymes, proteins or electrolytes using the so-called PCR method. Up to thirty employees were contracted to the customer by INTEGRATE.

Over the years the cooperation developed in different directions. INTEGRATE contracted experts as data managers, entrusted engineers with the development of databases or was given the assignment to monitor a project in the field of molecular diagnosis. The construction of connectors is a fine example of what the development work of an INTEGRATE expert entails. The developer connects chemical samples, that are processed with different diagnostic devices from one work step to the next, with a so-called connector. In special brackets tubes with samples of human tissue are conveyed from one machine to the next via rails or conveyer belts. When connecting the devices diverse protocols of different manufacturers must be implemented. This is particularly challenging as the diagnostic devices are not always produced in-house. These are often competitive products that the developer integrates in their own system.When programming clean transitions are essential to ensure the specified throughput of samples. The number of tubes per minute must be strictly complied with for an exact result. Faultless functioning must be possible at all times, as a mix-up of human samples, for example, could have serious consequences.

Resource Management in Banking

The abbreviation SSCA stands for System & Services Configuration and Accounting and designates a system, that enables the IT department of our banking customers to save their services and resources centrally and assign them correctly to the respective cost centers. The resources are either software or hardware and their configuration details can be managed. INTEGRATE was commissioned to construct a solution to link the bank services to application management.

If IT services are procured in the service departments of the bank, the IT department must record the expenses incurred and bill for their work. The aim of the new platform was to make cost settlement more transparent. It was also to reveal where inventory, like monitors or services, was in use.INTEGRATE developed a flexible web application based on an extendable database model. A modern, user-friendly web interface makes it easy for the users to obtain an overview of their own services and components. A monitoring system shows the availability of the application at any time, which enables better control of resources.The bank continuously develops the system further together with INTEGRATE. Topics like standardization of services and cloud are currently being processed.

  • Windows, .Net, C#
  • MS SQL Server
  • Cloud
  • UML, SCRUM, agile
  • SW-Architektur, Testing
