Upgrade IPM Curve Navigator: Detect deviations within production processes even more precisely

Process Data Management, Quality Assurance

The improvement of the IPM module from version 6.4 provides additional functions. Quality and production managers can look forward to the enhancements for the optimal evaluation of process curves.


The ongoing development of the product range of CSP GmbH & Co. KG includes not only new features but also the upgrade of existing modules in the respective software solutions. The IPM Curve Navigator has now been optimized so that quality and production managers can detect deviations in their manufacturing processes even more easily and precisely. With the release of the new IPM version, the module offers useful additional functionalities.

Container technology: Lower costs, significantly more performance

Database Archiving, Process Data Management, Quality Assurance, Worker Guidance

CSP integrates Docker containers into its products. Their level of high availability, scalability and resource-saving use makes them the ideal partner for IT managers.


Container-Technologie Docker


Container technology is becoming more and more established replacing virtual machines. This is primarily because they are suitable for applications that are more static and do not change often, whereas containers are much more flexible and make frequent updates possible in a simple way. This technology is therefore ideal for applications with varying workloads. “Containers can be used across operating systems and are highly available. If one quits, the next one steps in. Just like a train, containers can be easily connected and disconnected as needed,” explains Stefan Hammermüller, Strategic Product Manager at CSP.

Feedback requested: Release Candidate OPC40451-1 ready for launch

General, Chronos, Database Archiving, Process Data Management, Quality Assurance, Worker Guidance

Working group for joining technologies presents OPC UA Companion Specification. The aim of the cooperation is to maintain manufacturer independence in terms of machines, tools and bolting systems. Their unified, fast and cost-effective connection and the reduction of integration complexity in industrial automation are amongst others the focus topics.


OPCUA_VDMA_Release Candidate CSP


Bolting systems consist of numerous components that can now be modeled in a standardized way: Controllers, tools, storage devices, sensors, cables or even batteries, for example. Application areas are IT asset management, condition monitoring, result management and event management.


The German Engineering Federation, VDMA, recently conducted a study on interoperability in mechanical engineering among more than 600 companies in its sector. The results show that the goal of interoperable interfaces such as OPC UA must be to map production systems universally.

New technology: Monitoring crimping pliers with QS-Torque

Quality Assurance

CAQ software adds another joining process to its portfolio and ensures more safety and transparency in production. Permanent accessibility of data offers protection in the event of product liability.




Until now, the field of application of QS-Torque was mainly focused on the area of tightening technology. For machine and process monitoring, the software collects their data and evaluates them automatically. Now the portfolio has been expanded. In addition to the monitoring of fastening and riveting processes, crimping is now also covered.

QS-Torque module helps to comply with ISO6789-1:2017

Quality Assurance

Module ISO6789 monitors and documents compliance with the ISO standards of its name. Click wrenches and displaying torque wrenches can now also be connected to the Stahlwille Torkmaster test bench for testing functionality and performance.


Eduard Spachtholz


The ISO Norm 6789 regulates the procedure and specifications of torque and click wrench tests. To ensure the quality of tools used in the tightening process, QS-Torque software supports quality managers. Click wrenches and displaying torque wrenches are connected to a test bench and tested for this purpose. For both wrench types, ISO6789-1:2017 defined maximum permitted tolerances. These are displayed in the QS-Torque module ISO6789. Depending on your own operational requirements, the values can also be set tighter, but not higher, than the standard specifies. Test templates can be created individually for this purpose.
