Case Study: IoT Solution for Manufacturing

Manufacturer Increases Uptime Using IoT Solution for Manufacturing to Improve Machine Visibility

A major European manufacturer of bottling machinery also offers service contracts to help its customers maintain overall equipment effectiveness (OEE). One of the manufacturer’s customers operates a facility with older equipment, which began to negatively impact operating margins. With more than three hundred 20-year-old machines, an entirely new approach was needed to improve their OEE metrics, such as uptime, product quality, line performance, and maintenance cost.

The machinery manufacturer decided to implement Internet of Things (IoT) solutions from relayr, a technology company offering expert consulting, enterprise IoT middleware platforms, IoT gateways based on Intel® technologies, and easy-to-use data tools.
