Digitization of the production control with MES system

Nowadays, the increasing emphasis is placed on the use of principles of production management according to industry standards 4.0. One such principle is also the use of digitalization of production control with the MES system. A pilot project was launched at ZKL Brno plant, in which automatic data collection from the most busy machines was introduced. Specifically, these are lathes and grinders for the production of large-size bearings. Thanks to the information thus obtained, it is possible to respond quickly and efficiently to possible deviations from the production plan and to take timely and effective measures to eliminate them and manage them and increase productivity.


ZKL is the biggest manufacturer of large-scale spherical-roller, special and split bearings in Central Europe.
