The project began in June 2022. The first task was to digitally connect the furnace and pouring unit, along with the sand plant, the two DISA moulding lines, the entire suction system and the shotblast machines.
"Monitizer | DISCOVER connects to all our equipment, not just our DISA machines, to securely collect and bring all our data together in a single cloud database we can access from anywhere – even from my mobile when I am at home," says Javier. "It was "plug and play" to install the NoriGate gateways ourselves. It was obvious this was a tried-and-tested system as the whole process went very smoothly and quickly."
Monitizer timestamps and merges new data, automatically populating a reliable, consistent single process view within its cloud database and calculating any required variables. The Monitizer team worked with Draxton to set up the database, creating its variables and the most useful KPIs.
As the data started to flow in, the dedicated Monitizer customer success engineer also helped Draxton create the different dashboards. But although support was always on hand, very little was needed as Monitizer is easy for non-technical users to customise and make it do exactly as they want.
