Learn from your machines in the field to reduce costs on future machines
Have you ever looked at which machine parts are overperforming? Do you know if your machines are really used at the limit of their capacity? You might not realise it, but overperforming parts can cost you a lot. Collect and analyse machine data on IXON Cloud to learn from your existing machines and discover which parts never fail. Save costs while keeping a high quality, design cheaper machines and stay ahead of the competition.
Discover unexpected cost savings
Would you like to gain a competitive advantage over your competitors? Or are you feeling restricted by the high costs you have now? Find out how you can redesign your machines at lower cost by gathering and analysing data from your existing machines on IXON Cloud with limited investments and quick ROI.
Visualise the collected data from multiple machines in clear dashboards in the IXON Cloud, and perform advanced analysis to learn about the performance of your machines. The key is to not only look for information about failures, but also about things that are going too well.
Reconsider your safety margins
Use feedback from your machine's entire lifecycle to compare expected versus actual machine usage. Determine if machine parts are overperforming or if they are running below expected design criteria.
The first is surprisingly common, because machine builders often set wide margins for a safe bet. While this doesn’t sound like a problem, it's a serious waste of money. Monitor, compare and analyse data in the IXON Cloud to learn where to save costs in your redesign.
Feedback to design
Incorporate feedback from your installed machines into the design of a next-generation machine. Lower their safety margins or design criterias and make major savings on expensive high-quality machine parts without the risk of quality loss. Cost savings in your machine design allow you to lower the prices of your machines, giving you a major competitive advantage. Need help rolling out a new business model?
