The power of optimizing your manufacturing downtime

Improve settle time between cycles with reduced changeover time and faster routine maintenance. Augmented reality reduces training times while improving information retention so your team can efficiently move through the process—while asset monitoring detects misalignment issues before they occur.

Lean production

Implement SMED to begin changeover steps while machines are still running and streamline material workflows after change-up for faster start-up times. Reduce Materials Costs

Asset health monitoring

Measure compliance throughout the process, ensuring that your machines and team deliver to your real-time performance KPIs and build toward total effective equipment performance (TEEP). Maximize Utilization

Improve overall equipment effectiveness

Explore how industrial IoT solutions can help your team reduce unplanned downtime while increasing your overall equipment effectiveness through real-time health monitoring and predictive maintenance. Improve OEE
