Pumps and vacuum pumps at ACHEMA: meeting Industry 4.0 demands

The future pump and vacuum pump is intelligent and digitally integrated, according to manufacturers joined at VDMA Pumps + Systems as well as VDMA Vacuum technology. At present manufacturers are developing an administration shell based upon existing information models. This shell, the digital twin, contains all data specifying a pump.

“All requested realizations as for example an OPC UA companion specification can be directly deducted from information out of the administration shell. This is evident when developing a pump to meet “Industry 4.0” demands,” informs Christoph Singrün, managing director at VDMA Pumps + Systems, in the run-up to the ACHEMA in Frankfurt.

Key elements of this administration shell are information models, which already exist partly e.g. as standards or guidelines, and which have to be joined to a final administration shell. The “General device profile for pumps” (VDMA specification 24223) which standardizes basic functions and information on pumps and vacuum pumps in operation is suitable for one of these models. In the past this profile served as basis for multiple “bus applications” for products of different pump manufacturers. In addition to that, it is planned to use for the administration shell the “Baugrößenauswahlprogramm” (VDMA 24278), an electronic version of a comprehensive pump data sheet, developed in 2008 together with users of the chemical industry.
