Gesipa goes Industry 4.0 with iBird Pro tool
Gesipa has extended its Bird Pro series with a networked battery-powered setting tool, the iBird Pro. This device has been particularly designed for integration into IoT/Industry 4.0 and lean production environments. The iBird Pro tool can be connected to the iBird Pro App on up to three devices simultaneously that keeps the operator informed about setting processes as well as the operating status of the setting tool at any time.
Easily connected via a QR code, the app keeps a log of the setting processes using various rivet counters. A countdown function, indicators for battery level and maintenance as well as a display of the process keep the operator up to date during the setting process. In addition, it also advises the operator on how to handle the device as well as instructions for maintenance and repair that can be recalled at any time in order to answer any questions.
As an option to be equipped with a premium software package, the iBird Pro can provide a setting process assistant that supports the operator in analysing the results of the setting process. Successful riveting configurations can be stored and then be combined into any job list as required. This feature helps to avoid riveting failure as well as the use of wrong fasteners in the application, while at the same time guaranteeing the availability of sufficient number of fasteners. This helps to increase process safety and reduces costs.
