You can't improve what you can't track. Nowadays everything is about analytics and having all the data possible to make better decisions. This type of thinking has been making its way into the industrial world. Coined as Industry 4.0, which is the 4th revolution that has occurred in manufacturing, manufacturers are taking advantage of today's technology to optimize their factories.
Great machines produce great products, but smart machines produce bigger margins. If you had access to all the data of your machines, you'd be able to see exactly what's going on in your factory from a screen in your office. Such data can lead to making better decisions, as explained in blog post Understanding Data to Make Better Decisions for Safety/Growth.
Ecogate smart systems offer such data and analytics. Users can see their overall system performance with key data such as fan load , fan/filter pressure, average number of active gates and VFD frequency. Users can even review and compare their system performance based on different date ranges.
Our analytics platform also lets users see their workstation utilization, which can give them valuable insights such as whether or not their system can support additional CFM. The data can also optimize workflow, when it comes to machine relocation, advance workstation investment, adding workstations, troubleshooting and maintenance.
