NeedlyMat™ is an automatic needle changing machine that aims to support the maintenance process of needle holder tables for needle punching machines with advanced procedures, based on artificial intelligence and self-learning, identifying damaged or bent needles and replacing them in total autonomy.
You just have to show him the needle table, then NeedlyMat™ takes care of it!
NeedlyMat™ has a simple multilingual user interface and is able to uniquely associate each operator with the activities carried out on each individual needle table.
NeedlyMat™ is compatible with all needle board patterns on the market.
In case of non-standard boards, the pattern will be generated specifically.
NeedlyMat™ has the ability to send data, via the Internet, to a centralized processing system, in compliance with the Industry 4.0 model which regulates capital goods whose operation is controlled by computerized systems or managed by appropriate sensors and drives.
NeedlyMat™ performs the analysis of the needles and the replacement of damaged ones in an average time of one hour per table (estimated time for a table of 1300 × 360 mm, with density 5000 needles / meter and a maximum of 1500 damaged needles).
NeedlyMat™ manages the inventory of needle tables and needles, and creates a complete database of all operations carried out in a given period. Furthermore, thanks to the processing of the acquired data, it attributes to each table the exclusive NMI, NeedlyMatIndex, which identifies its “state of health” in relation to its useful life cycle.
NeedlyMat™ allows you to manage:
NeedlyMat™ allows to rationalize the use of human resources normally dedicated to the manual maintenance of the needle holder tables, improving the working conditions of the operators and making the whole process safer.
Reservations are open for the first five machines and will be available starting March 2022.
