ELK GROVE VILLAGE, IL, April 1, 2022-

Shibaura Machine Company, America’s Digital Services Division introduces machiNetCloud to empower customers to build their own smart factories with the power of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).

Shibaura Machine Company, America announces the formation of their new Digital Services Division along with the launch of machiNetCloud. The Digital Services Division will serve customers with solutions to digitally transform their operations, starting with the launch of machiNetCloud which improves manufacturing productivity and efficiency through a suite of applications offering seamless, secure connectivity.

The machiNetCloud solution provides customers improved utilization by connecting machinery and providing real-time machine data at the user's fingertips. “By utilizing cloud computing and processing analytics, machiNetCloud’s “Customer Portal” offers a suite of applications to allow our customers a dependable and secure method to measure and track data to improve overall equipment efficiency (OEE),” explains Michael Werner, IIoT Customer Success Manager of the Digital Services Division.

The Customer Portal brings secure web and mobile applications for reviewing key performance indicators (KPI) safely to show the operating status of a factory, even in remote locations. Customers and authorized technicians can remotely access the HMI of machine controls for remote troubleshooting and operational data of any connected equipment in the cell, which is stored and analyzed on the cloud. Alerts notify both third-party technicians and internal users via email or SMS regarding operational setpoint deviations, production alerts, machine alarms, maintenance reminders, and more. This proactive “remote-enabled” service approach leads to reduced downtime and maintenance costs.

The machiNetCloud solution also provides a Downtime Tracking app which allows customers to easily capture and analyze machine downtime automatically from the machine. Customers can maximize OEE and plant productivity by analyzing downtime events with the use of this app. Downtime Tracking helps managers decide how, when, and where to focus their resources to get the best ROI of continuous improvement programs aimed at increasing asset utilization and reducing downtime events.

The machiNetCloud solution provides a vertically integrated, secure way for factories to adopt IIoT with low risk and high ROI. Contact the machiNetCloud team at Shibaura Machine, America to learn more about the industry-leading suite of applications which allow for real-time visibility of your operational efficiency anytime, anywhere.
