Performing Precision Machining at HIWIN Using the Watchdog Agent™ Prognostics Toolkit for LabVIEW


"We see this technology as a revolutionary way for HIWIN’s customers to maintain a competitive edge by ensuring high-quality parts are developed through precision machining."

- Chun-Liang Wu, HIWIN Corporation

The Challenge:
Optimally scheduling proactive maintenance by estimating the feed axis’ remaining useful life prior to a worn or faulty state to avoid product scraps and the loss of position accuracy, which can directly affect machining performance.

The Solution:
Using various algorithms in the IMS Center’s Watchdog Agent Prognostics Toolkit for NI LabVIEW system design software with NI CompactRIO hardware to record signals, extract position accuracy features and accurately model the degradation behavior to infer the next failure state and make informed maintenance scheduling decisions.
