Big-data-powered Smart Maintenance Minimizing the down time of equipment is essential for enhancing competitiveness in manufacturing. Hyundai Motor Group has been designing, installing, and developing its own machining tools and operating them in factories all over the world. With this machine manufacturing and operating technology, Hyundai Motor Group is leading the way for smart factories of the 4th Industrial Revolution. Also, using the big-data of collected equipment data and operation information, we are now researching and developing various new technologies for preemptive maintenance of the production equipment.
Artificial-Intelligence Smart Machines Since 2016, Hyundai Motor Group has been participating in a government-funded project called “CNC Machining Tool Unified HMI and Smart Processing System Operation Technology Development.” For this project, we have joined the CNC (iTROL+) with artificial intelligence for improvement. And, with our European research center, we have successfully developed the 5-axix machining center for mold processing with the highest precision level in the world, the XF series. Especially, the XF2000 equipment proved its superiority by winning the MM Award for the milling department in 2017, the first time for a South Korean company, during EMO Hanover 2017.
