Fineblanking and forming technologies of Swiss company Feintool are primarily used in the automotive industry. For example, one press for clutch components produces around 100 million components per year. To reduce press downtime to a minimum and to arrange maintenance via remote service, Feintool was looking for a suitable IoT solution.
The solution was the web-based monitoring and analysis platform FEINmonitoring, set up and made live by Device Insight within a few months. Feintool’s service technicians can now access the tool worldwide, view data and manage machines remotely. Tiresome inspection patrols are now a thing of the past. Damage is detected and repaired at an early stage, before any failure occurs.
Machine tool manufacturers are under increasing pressure: Machines must be utilized even more efficiently, downtime must be avoided, material flow must be optimized, and administrative order processing must be automated. Add to this the ongoing task of reducing operating costs and increasing production efficiency. Now for the good news: This can all be implemented with the right IoT software solution. 75% less maintenance, 30% less downtime – all this is possible, as we show you in our whitepaper, complete with customer examples.
Find out now which challenges machine tool manufacturers have successfully overcome with the help of IoT. See at a glance which advantages you can use for yourself.
