How do manufacturing companies use IIoT to save millions?

It’s not unrealistic. On this episode of the Industrial + Manufacturing podcast, Spencer Cramer, CEO and President of Ei3, shares how Ei3 is using technology like AI and IIoT to save millions and generate large savings for their industrial customers.

We covered topics like: how companies like Hilton have generated $1B in savings with IIoT, how manufacturing companies are applying IIOT to generate savings, and how you can use IIoT to create a better experience for your customers.

To match the exponential growth, Milacron is tripling its work force for its digital solutions to further monitor projects and provide proactive customer engagement. At Milacron, we believe that all manufacturers should have access to the tools to make the best production decisions. M-Powered is fully customizable, agile and flexible intelligence software, designed to be intuitively used through analytical dashboards and reports to allow manufacturers to interpret problems and uncover opportunities to make optimal business decisions.

The dashboards include basic predictive, prescriptive and analytics capabilities for key Milacron machine components like Heater Bands, Hydraulic Pumps, and Feed Screws. These predictions enable service teams to turn unplanned downtime into planned downtime, to improve machine availability.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]On the request of the users, Kurtz technicians can also connect to the machines to upgrade programs, trouble-shoot problems and provide remote assistance.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”35049″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][vc_single_image image=”35046″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css=”.vc_custom_1571400349897{margin-right: 8.5% !important;margin-left: 8.5% !important;padding-bottom: 3% !important;}”][vc_column][vc_column_text]“We are pleased to partner with ei3, who enables us to deliver IIoT services at the highest quality with a high level of compliance and IT security for our customers,” says Uwe Rothaug, Managing Director at Kurtz Ersa. ei3 operates in compliance to some of the most stringent security requirements and privacy controls, including the International Standard Organization (ISO) 27001:2013 and NIST 800.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]EXPANDED APPLICATIONS

ei3’s latest innovation in AI and IIoT through its dedicated Data Science center in Zurich, Switzerland paves the way for new – applications to support preemptive part stocking modules and expanded lifetime-tracking for mold, tooling and auxiliary components. Building on these capabilities, Milacron’s M-Powered is now able to interpret the data to determine impending failures, maintenance needs, or incorrect recipe settings of the machine. Addressing those issues leads to reduced unplanned downtime, and improved OEE

These features boost existing M-Powered capabilities, valued by countless customers in everyday operations.

Key Production Reporting features that IIoT delivers:

  • Real-time reporting of production information
  • Integrates work orders, production orders, quality, downtime and process parameter results
  • User configuration tools
  • Automatic scheduled email delivery of configured reports to users and groups
  • Variety of formats including pdf, excel and text
  • Many standard reports available
  • Custom reports can be created upon request

ei3 makes it incredibly easy to reap immediate benefits from your data set. Without much learning, investments, or waiting or large sets of data to collect, at a click of a button you can unlock ei3’s extensive production reporting capabilities. Comprehensive reports give you information on the status of your operations, allowing you to see what is going on at an unprecedented level of clarity, and take decisions based on facts and figures rather than hear-say.

Each report can of course be adapted to fit your needs, both from a content perspective but also graphically (for example, it will come with your company logo on!), or you can define an entirely new report template. Reports can be browsed in HTML format on-line, sent automatically on a regular basis (daily, weekly, quarterly, yearly), or created when specific conditions warrant it – on trigger.

Any Milacron machine can be enhanced with ei3 AI capabilities in less than two weeks. This system will improve equipment productivity and any process ran on the machinery.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]DATA SECURITY IS KEY
