Paper Abstract

This paper looks at the advantages of using the Internet, as the basis for the implementation of low-cost condition monitoring systems, in the manufacturing industry. A model based condition monitoring system, is presented where a number of machining stations dispersed at different physical locations can be inspected via Internet access and the signals from the process analyzed in a dedicated condition monitoring center. Incentive for the new approach to the system health monitoring, logging and surveillance are presented. These extend into advantages of using model-based techniques and the need for an appropriate mathematical model of the machine tool. Finally, the data acquisition and communication system to be used in this application for Internet access will be explained.
