  • Patent number: 11188518
    Abstract: The present invention related to the technical field of industrial automation, in particular to a method and apparatus for generating a fault diagnosis database of a CNC machine tool, intended to conveniently provide comprehensive fault diagnosis information. The method comprises: setting a fault condition of the CNC machine tool; running a simulation model of the CNC machine tool under each set fault condition to generate fault, and recording a fault phenomenon of the fault; backtracking a possible fault generating each fault phenomenon, to establish an association between the fault phenomenon and a possible fault generating the fault phenomenon; generating a fault diagnosis database of the CNC machine tool according to the association established. Due to the fact that what is being run is a simulation model of the CNC machine tool, various fault conditions can be conveniently set.

  • Patent number: 10999071
    Abstract: A method is for executing an application in a cloud system. The method includes receiving a request from a first user for executing an application in the cloud system; receiving, from the first user, user data of the first user related to the execution of the requested application; storing the received user data in a first storage area of a computing environment of the cloud system; in the computing environment, executing the requested application based on the stored user data of the first user to obtain an execution result; and storing the execution result in a second storage area of the computing environment, the access permission of the first user to the first storage area being a write-only permission, and the access permission of the first user to the second storage area being a read-only permission. As such, data privacy protection and security can be provided in the cloud system.

  • Publication number: 20200310380
    Abstract: In the technical field of industrial automation, a fault diagnosis method and apparatus for a numerical control machine tool are disclosed which can improve the efficiency of diagnosing faults of numerical control machine tools by utilizing feedback information provided by users. In a fault diagnosis method of an embodiment, the fault diagnosis apparatus receives a fault symptom to be diagnosed from a user terminal, diagnoses the fault for the fault symptom to be diagnosed, returns a fault diagnosis result to the user terminal, receives feedback on the fault diagnosis result from the user terminal, and adjusts the diagnosis policy for the fault symptom to be diagnosed according to the fault diagnosis result if the feedback of the user on the fault diagnosis result indicates that the fault has been cleared.
