Heterogeneous machine parks with different control types are not uncommon in machining companies. Old systems are operated alongside new systems, so that their computing and storage capacity in machines is limited. Thanks to Liveinspect this is a thing of the past. Liveinspect reads the data from the machines and processes them further. Edge computing not only collects data in the machine, but also reduces it by selectively selecting data sources to prevent the generation of irrelevant data.
