This presentation will demonstrate how the Digital Thread and Digital Twins are used to control and monitor the real time of the Super Profiler Cell and Henry Coolant Filter process line at Boeing. The demo project in this presentation used Siemens’ TIA Portal to create the 3D digital twin model and control program via the Profinet communication protocol. It will work in real time for the 3D digital twin model with a machine controller. Super Profiler is a five axis CNC machine with two spindles for 777X wing joint chord and Rib-T. There are only 8 of these machines currently being used across the world. These Digital Twins utilize the Digital Twin Manufacturing Framework as well as ANSI/ISA95/IEC 62264-1.

Hardware: Siemens 840D Sl CNC and S7-300 PLC, Rockwell control Logix PLC
