IMA’s Digital Classrooms are specially designed environments enabling learning through use of the latest digital technologies. Each classroom is staffed with expert trainers who guide trainees through their learning process. Thanks to the combination of know-how and technologies, trainees can practise with traditional lessons which they follow on a dedicated e-learning platform, increasing confidence and interaction skills with the digital copies of equipment, safely and in a risk-free environment.
The IMA E-learning mode has been specifically designed to allow the trainee to investigate the topics covered in class in greater depth, independently and at any place or time. This mode allows them to review and examine the content more closely, on the same platforms and with the same technologies, offering the chance to undergo tests and exams to establish a degree of understanding. The use of interactive multimedia formats and of Virtual Reality contributes to enriching the experience and increasing operator confidence when using the equipment.
Training, which began in the Digital Classroom and continued with E-Learning, can be integrated and enhanced in production directly on the machine with the support of advanced technologies. The use of APPs dedicated to ordinary or extraordinary maintenance allows operators to carry out daily activities in a practical and efficient way, and the use of IMA Augmented Reality elements facilitates the most complex operations.
IMA Sentinel is the platform to autonomously monitor machine conditions in real-time 24/7, collecting raw data and translating them into meaningful and valuable information.
Monitor whenever you are your installed base with IMA Sentinel.
IMA Group carried out various projects concerning the interconnectivity of machines and their direct communication with the Control Rooms.
Throughout these protected digital spaces (located in production facilities or on cloud platforms) data is collected, analyzed and re-processed to generate new technological solutions and improve production results.
In recent years, cyber-security has become a dominant theme in the manufacturing world. Hacker attacks are increasingly frequent and put data, systems and people at risk.
The problem is now solved with A4GATE, the integrated hardware and software solution to protect data confidentiality, system operations and operator safety.
IMA Remote Assistance is the IMA Digital service aimed to offer remote support and restore production quickly.
Through the tools selected, an IMA operator will be able to promptly support the resolution of technical problems that have occurred on the machine, remotely.
Among the various advanced technologies that it is possible to exploit thanks to the data the collaborative robots, or cobots, seem to see a remarkable peak of popularity.
Pilot projects are currently ongoing involving different IMA divisions, and they see the experimentation of new forms of collaboration between cobots and operators.
Through dedicated platforms, IMA is able to offer the opportunity to carry out the checking procedures of the plant testing without the on-site presence of the commissioning technicians.
Through streaming mode, the customer actively interacts by participating in online webinars equipped with all the most advanced tools.
IMA Virtual Training enhances the process of learning to teach intervention procedures on machines and verify operator comprehension, with or without the physical presence of the machinery and trainers.
Interaction and learning activities are built with gamification influences, making learning and engaging processes more immediate and intuitive. Furthermore, IMA Virtual Training allows the operator to learn independently on the device language.
IMA Digital is our desire for innovation. The force that drives us in the creation of new digital services to enhance and support manufacturing world. The goal to be achieved and that pushes us to innovate quality, strengthen reliability and develop a new way of producing. IMA Digital aims at being an innovative thinking and an extraordinary way to grow. An idea, a concept always in evolution that brings change and that gives life to digital products, virtual tools and smart application – technology sensitive – to obtain full production efficiency in the manufacturing world. IMA Digital covers a series of projects, activities and actions aimed at optimizing internal and external processes. We integrate technological know-how and new digital skills into classic production paradigms. We implement Smart Technology in our flows and we train our operators in the use of the most innovative digital tools. The solution we adopt are technology sensitive, covering therefore some of the different markets we serve.
