Pantec and IXON join forces to support machine builders with their digitalisation journey


IXON B.V. and Pantec Engineering AG are proud to announce their new strategic partnership. With this partnership, IXON and Pantec aim to better support machine builders in their IoT projects.

Today, Industrial IoT offers extensive opportunities for machine builders to develop new business models and optimise maintenance and sales processes. For Markus Hanefeld, Business Development Manager at Pantec Automation, the implementation of Industrial IoT solutions based on IXON technology means - above all - security for the OEM.

"Industrial IoT is becoming a key component for the competitiveness of machine builders. Through the partnership with IXON, Pantec now gains access to the most comprehensive IoT platform currently available on the market. Whether it's remote maintenance, machine availability or a new business model, the combination of IXON's extensive hardware and software product portfolio and Pantec's application proximity enables OEMs from the machine building industry to get started in a well-founded yet uncomplicated 'hands on' way."

As specialists in control technology and machine IT, Pantec has been dealing with the topic of Industrial IoT for several years and has developed corresponding concepts in customer projects and successfully implemented them with different technology platforms. Building on the IXON portfolio, Pantec offers machine builders a full-service solution to create additional value with data-driven services throughout the machine lifecycle.
With the introduction of their own branded customer portal, OEMs then have an excellent basis on which to establish new services and business models. The implementation of such an Industrial IoT project represents a major step for a mechanical engineering company in its digital transformation.

"To make such a project a success, expertise is needed in three main areas: Architecture Design, Security Expertise and Business Model Development. With a partner like Pantec, our customers in the DACH region can now rely on the right expertise and commitment before, during and after implementation."
