Digital Lab

Advanced IIoT solutions that deliver: sustainability, efficiency, transparency.

Bringing together technical expertise and digital know-how

Digital technology can transform industry. It can unlock new potential for improvement, unearth new insights, boost sustainable production, provide never-before-seen transparency and traceability. However, in our customers’ industries, digital generalists quickly reach their limits.

To build meaningful digital solutions that have a genuine impact on performance, you need a deep understanding of the technical processes you are looking to improve – as well as digital know-how.

Our Digital Lab combines both. Based in Munich, it provides a central global resource for the latest in digital tech, and works closely with technical experts at our four brands to apply digital technology to the right customer challenges, in the right way.

Our digital solutions

The Digital Lab team evolves and enhances the digital infrastructure that underpin our solutions, as well as developing the core building blocks of our modular IIoT platform, Monitizer.

Our data gateway NoriGate together with Monitizer | DISCOVER can digitally enable almost any type of industrial equipment, streaming, displaying and analysing data from all across production - or stand-alone from a single machine.

Specific tools and applications are built on top of this, to address specific challenges. Whether it’s detecting the causes of scrap on a moulding line, optimising energy use of a holding furnace or slashing abrasive consumption of a shot-blast machine.

Many of our process-specific tools have been co-developed not just with experts at our brands, who form part of the Digital Lab team, but also with our customers.

The latest version of Monitizer | DISCOVER has been completely redeveloped to make it much easier for customers to adapt and configure the solution, build their own dashboards and mini-applications, empowering them to accelerate their move to data-driven production.
