Research News /

MIALinx, a web-based application from the Fraunhofer Institute for Manu- facturing Engineering and Automation IPA, connects machines, sensors and data to an agile network. Building on a previous project called Sense&Act, this latest advance brings a great measure of adaptability to plants and, as an added perk, optimizes machine maintenance. MIALinx even interfaces with old lathes and milling machines.
