Sharpen your competitive edge with industrial IoT

Manufacturing facilities and industrial plant currently face a number of challenges that can impact operations. Increased demand for production volumes builds stress on machines and causes higher risks of failures or downtimes. Both workers and equipment require real-time monitoring to improve industrial safety. And with raw materials growing scarce and becoming more expensive, operations need to be optimized to avoid energy inefficiency and reduce manufacturing waste material.
Actility’s IIoT solutions connect monitor industrial systems, communicate and analyse data and trigger actions to increase efficiency, limit downtime and avoid accidents. ThingPark, combined with third-party SCADA systems monitors:

  • energy consumption for each machine
  • fire, flood, smoke, hazardous materials
  • strategic equipment condition
  • operator safety and wellbeing
  • stock against theft

For example, a factory machine equipped with IoT sensors can detect changes in its operational parameters, determine the probability of failure as a result and then schedule maintenance before a fault causes expensive unplanned downtime.

Improve staff and environment security

Workers equipped with wearable IoT sensors can be notified if they enter a dangerous area in the factory. Should an accident occur, rescue teams are immediately alerted and directed to the precise location of the injured worker.

Improve operations with predictive maintenance

Actility ThingPark platform allows the monitoring of machine equipment and aggrehgation of data from sensors. Using advanced analytics and machine learning enables the prediction of equipment failure and the scheduling of preventative maintenance, thus reducing costly and unplanned equipment down time. According to Cisco Systems*, iimplementing IIoT in factories almost halves downtime and the number of defects in production.

Improve factory efficiency

ThingPark enables industrial companies to better manage energy consumption thanks to water, gas and electricity metering and demand scheduling. Studies show that IIoT can generate up to 20% energy savings.
