Why Digitize?
It is no secret that we spend too much time looking for information that is not available when it is needed. I have witnessed a maintenance person trying to replace a failed controls device, without a replacement procedure or prior experience many times. Although not every device requires a replacement procedure, many do because of technical and safety considerations. For example, replacing a failed servo drive with specific absolute and incremental move positions, safe stop positions, speed, torque, and other parameters can be a tricky task for the inexperienced. Not knowing what cable to use, where to find the backup file, what software is needed and how to home an axis add delays to the task and could potentially result in equipment damage or personal injury if the wrong steps are taken.
