2015 Hannover Messe: TÜV NORD and Fraunhofer IFF Present Cyber Inspection

02.04.2015 | Companies: Industry 4.0 is turning manufacturing facilities into complex cyber-physical systems that interconnect mechanical objects with embedded software over the Internet.

Industry 4.0 is turning manufacturing facilities into complex cyber-physical systems that interconnect mechanical objects with embedded software over the Internet. Digital technologies are also changing traditional testing and certification. At the Hannover Messe, TÜV NORD and the Fraunhofer IFF will be presenting an exhibit of a mobile assistance system for the inspection of industrial plants.

Digital technologies such as mobile assistance systems, virtual engineering and augmented reality have many benefits for technical inspection. To this end, TÜV NORD is collaborating with the Fraunhofer Institute for Factory Operation and Automation IFF in Magdeburg. The research institute uses these technologies to develop systems solutions for smart work systems; TÜV NORD is contributing its expertise in the inspection of complex industrial plants. The strategic objective of their collaboration is to develop innovative technologies for TÜV NORD’s service portfolio and to employ them in concrete applications. The partners are presently collaborating in a pilot project. The experts intend to use mobile assistance systems in the future for inspection services during so-called cyber inspection.

TÜV NORD and the Fraunhofer IFF will be exhibiting mobile assistance systems for the operation and inspection of industrial plants at this year’s Hannover Messe. The approximately two by on meter exhibit presents a model manufacturing line. Anyone using a tablet and the proper software to view the plant will receive pertinent information, e.g. checklists, condition data or the last inspection report, superimposed on particular components as augmented reality. “Mobile assistance systems could be used for inspections of different technical facilities in industry as well as for wind turbines or elevators. We are pooling our know-how with the Fraunhofer IFF to test concrete applications,” says Dalibor Jerinic, Innovation Manager at TÜV NORD.

A second exhibit at the booth will present a 3D print of a damaged pipeline. TÜV NORD has developed an innovative system that simulates and evaluates damage in pipelines. It is used to better plan and to replace defective sections of pipeline more cost effectively.

What is more, India is the official partner country of the 2015 Hannover Messe. TÜV NORD GROUP’s subsidiary TÜV India has been working in the growing market there for twenty-five years.

TÜV NORD at Hannover Messe: April 13 to 17, 2015; Hall 27, Booth H41.
