Hot Runner Monitoring in Injection Molding Improves Product Quality
This customer is a Korea-based supplier of hot runner systems for injection molding equipment, and they wished to leverage Internet of Things (IoT) technology to enhance their monitoring and control over molding processes. They used Advantech’s Edge Intelligence Server(EIS) to render an IoT solution that adds both equipment and environment sensors in order to implement well-rounded monitoring and more intelligent control over molding temperatures, speeds and times, in order to help their customers improve manufacturing outcomes.
Using Big Data Analytics for Equipment Preventive Maintenance
Our customer in this case was one of famous chip manufacturers, who wished to establish an IoT-enabled intelligent monitoring system overseeing all machines and equipment in their facilities, with the intention of implementing preventive maintenance once the aggregation of data was sufficient for big data analysis. EIS provided powerful Node-RED logic flow control tool, which allows the user to edit preventive maintenance workflows and remotely implant the resulting module into an edge server via the WISE-PaaS platform; this enables the EIS to carry out data preprocessing and preventive maintenance tasks.
Proactive Maintenance Creates New Business Model for Elevator Suppliers
Our customer in this case is one of Asia’s most active elevator/escalator suppliers, who has installed over 3,500 elevators/escalators in Taiwan alone, not to mention their growing business base in mainland China and other Asian countries. Imagine the complicated management and huge resources involved in their repair and maintenance works. Leveraging EIS solution, our customer successfully developed a proactive elevator/escalator maintenance system that collects real time operation data from the elevators/escalators, automatically halting the operation of elevators or escalators where monitored parameters reach dangerous thresholds, and alerting the company for needed repairs or component renewals
