The industry is going through a transformation and this transformation is being called Industry 4.0. In the third iteration of industrial revolution adoption of computers and automation was introduced. Companies now are pushing the envelope in this direction fuelled by data and machine learning as an Industry 4.0 initiative.
IoT has been a disruptive force for the Industry, so much so, that companies are now scrambling to integrate devices to monitor and manage their assembly lines, which are dominated by machines and robots in this day and age. Altizon Systems- with its special expertise in the Industrial IoT has been providing comprehensive solutions for the leading names of the industry.
Altizon was founded in 2013 by three co-founders with an idea of delivering solutions which would bring upon industrial digital revolution globally. The company has taken initiatives to make this happen by undertaking smart manufacturing initiatives, modernizing Asset Performance Management and pioneering new business models for service delivery. The company caters to multiple industries that include Automotive, Steel, FMCG, Energy, and Chemical.
Altizon’s Datonis IIoT Platform was launched in 2013 and it quickly became the company’s best offering to date. The platform is capable of expediting the process of integrating IT/OT through swiftly connecting industrial assets and launching new applications over a hybrid infrastructure with edge computing.
Datonis Platform to the rescue
A global metal forging company based out of Pune, India wished to improve their products, business and the efficiency of the production data from their assembly lines. This was a part of its Industry 4.0 initiative.
The $2.5 billion conglomerate which has a transcontinental presence had multiple assembly lines that included machines, robots, and conveyors. They wanted to use IIoT solutions to analyze real-time and historical data to get insights to improve throughput and predict outcomes.
The company had invested in multiple SCADA systems across its lines. But these heterogeneous systems gave birth to challenges pertaining to data collection and presenting a unified view of the production and efficiency data. Moreover, the company was worried that adding more machines would result in a huge growth of data to be processed.
To help with the situation, Altizon through its Datonis IIoT Platform provided the company with accurate real-time OEE and production visibility. Prior to the deployment of Datonis, the company calculated these statistics manually and had concerns regarding the data inaccuracy. After Datonis Platform took up the responsibility, all data was collected and analyzed at a central location available anywhere and at anytime. The company could even monitor the real-time condition of the machines in their assembly lines after deploying Datonis.
