Machine software redefined: The generated code for maximum stable processes

EVERY BIT UNDER CONTROL!

SELMOtino every thing under control

SELMO is an automation solution that reduces downtime and makes ALL data visible.

The patented technology of “Sequence Logic Modelling” models the process sequence and automatically generates the PLC code and HMI.

The software proves its high quality during operation and error analysis – down to the last bit: SELMO can control ALL possible machine states. Good times instead of downtimes!

What happens when a single bit in the machine tips? Correct. Nothing at all. Many producers struggle with long downtimes due to PLC software errors or changes. 5% of the cost of a machine represents 100% of it. Only this 5 % is digital and decisive.

That’s why we put the software at the beginning instead of the end of engineering, generate it automatically and make it platform- and hardware-independent.

SELMO monitors EVERY possible bit pattern of the sequence.

What happens if a single bit in the machine tilts? Correct. Nothing more. Many producers struggle with long downtimes due to PLC errors or changes. 5 % of the cost of a machine turns off 100 % of it. Only this 5% is digital and decisive.

Therefore, we place the software at the beginning instead of the end of the engineering, generate it automatically and make it platform and hardware independent.

What SELMO machines do: true digitization

Users minimise the complexity risk by having ONE structure, ONE operating concept and ONE data model in the machines. Implementers generate a sequential logical PLC program that can be validated on the 3D model before the first screw is seated. Each data point gets digitally visible.

A SELMO machine precisely executes what is defined in advance as a process during operation: It always informs you what the next step is, what needs to be done and what is missing.

SELMO for Machine Operators

New machines or retrofits: We support you and your suppliers in implementing the SELMO standard. Or commission our SELMO Automation GmbH as your operative partner!

SELMO for Engineers

We train you to use and pass on SELMO yourself. License/Sales partners are welcome! We would be pleased to introduce our partner program to you.

SELMO Process: Standard, Method, Tool

Machine operators can pass on the SELMO standard, which ties in with automotive specifications, to their suppliers. The “Digital First” method creates a common image for all engineers. Programmers are relieved of routine tasks with the SELMO Studio Tool.

Comments on SELMO

Licensee Voice:: "Productivity turbo. Not dreams of the future!"

“SELMO is not a dream of the future, but a productivity turbo for numerous projects. As SELMO Automation GmbH and first licensee we operate successful showcase facilities. Already on the second day of SELMO integration, we re-modelled a test machine four times. The focus on process and flow logic is not in vain. Thanks to the HMI generator, the system was immediately ready for use. Time factor 1:5 to 1:7 is not a deception but reality. Further license partners are very welcome!”

Academic Voice: "Interlocking of practice and science"

“I got to know SELMO at the FH CAMPUS 02 already through the academic career of Markus Gruber. Already during his automation engineering studies he had the idea to simplify, standardize and better secure PLC programming and thus the functional definition of automats and machines. SELMO has become market-ready through the intertwining of practice and theory or of business and science. In SELMO I see a great opportunity to counteract the lack of resources and to take a central role in automation”

CAMPUS 02 Fachhochschule der Wirtschaft FH-Prof. DI Dr. Udo Traussnigg, Head of Studies Automation Engineering

Customer Voice: "High Standard für PLC Programming"

“The automotive industry has always demanded a high standard for PLC programming. A standard was developed by each OEM and communicated to the suppliers. The requirements have not become smaller over time, but rather more demanding. What has been demanded for decades, SELMO now delivers from one model: a stable structure and user-friendly functions. Since programming is done by a code generator, a general standard for mechanical engineering could become established. SELMO is already involved in various projects and will soon be available as an online tool. Generating allows concentration on the process and commissioning. The result is a structure with the highest demands on software quality”.

STECO Engineering GmbH CEO Rudolf Steinmetz

Incubator Voice: "New quality standard for machine programming"

“SELMO provides an easy method to transform logical based sequences into an automatic generated, safe and secure software. Thus, a new quality standard for machine programming is guaranteed.”
