Mr. Müller-Probandt, company Dienes
specialises in machine components for the manmade fiber
production as well as textile special applications. One focus
are pilot installations for research. How is Industry 4.0
touching this application?
Müller-Probandt: One key product in our portfolio is a
modular spinning system which allows customised solutions,
starting from thread run studies to complete pilot
Each unit has its own PLC (Programmable Logic Controller),
which allows to run DIENES units in foreign lines or to
integrate foreign units in a DIENES line. The units can be
operated with an interface directly or over the ethernet from an
upper control system.

What are the advantages for
customers e.g. research institutes or R&D departments?
Müller-Probandt: Our modular system includes a line overview,
which rearranges itself almost automatically for different
operation modes in alternative machine sequences. The detailed
process representation allows the customer to monitor directly
the effect for all changes of parameters.
If a good yarn could be realized it is possible to backtrack
the journey of this yarn through the process.
The parameters can be modified with mobile devices, like a
pad or a mobile phone. All these functionalities allow the
research institutes and industry to reduce the cost of
investments and to operate fast and flexibly in the development
of new products, which additionally save costs and time.
