Monitor all your equipment with simple-to-install wireless IoT devices sensing pressure, vibration, 3D tilt, temperature, humidity, switches, openings, battery charge, voltage, and leaks, … to make better predictive maintenance and optimize your operations.
Wireless IoT devices can constantly monitor cracks, extensions, or strain gauges on key structural elements to prevent extensive structural damage and help engineers better predict and plan building improvements.
IoT devices save time spent on manual checks and provide precise fill level measurements for tanks and silos. Accurate monitoring lets you anticipate refills in a predictive and timely manner.
Put an end to the time and money spent on meter readings and manual data processing. Once activated, smart -wirelessly connected- meters transmit data over the Sigfox public network and run for years on the same battery.
With wireless IoT sensor you can easily remotely monitor the charge level of any industrial back up batteries as well as small equipment eg. smoke alarm batteries.
OEE, Overall Equipment Effectiveness
Compute and enhance the capability & reliability of manufacturing operations by streamlining your production with OEE.
What is OEE?
OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness) is the standard for measuring manufacturing productivity and analyzing the equipment performance. It identifies the percentage of manufacturing time that creates a product that can be delivered to the customer. Evaluates how efficiently a machine, your work force and the process is being used or performed. By optimizing OEE, you can improve quality and increase efficiency in your production lines. It helps to increase the capacity of your shop floor.
Machine Utilization, quality of the produced goods & performance of the Machine / Operator are the core of any production industry. OEE is one common metric that defines all the three put together. The higher the OEE, the shop floor produces higher number of shippable products and lower will be the cost used to produce a part that can be sold to customers. This is especially true for the long term, but often for the short and medium term as well. These include adding new transitions, increasing overtime, purchasing new piece of equipment, outsourcing production or opening a new facility. Currently, the OEE score of 85 percent is considered exceptional. The truth is, many manufacturing facilities are falling behind this rate ( around 40%), in need of making continuous improvement. There is a lot of scope for improving the productivity and eliminating waste with OEE metric on a day to day, month on month & year over year.
