Clouver gives machine manufacturers the chance to offer their customers added value and increase machine availability. The IoT solution for Industry 4.0 implements this by collecting important production data in real time, stores it in the cloud, and makes it available for evaluation. An essential functionality from Clouver for manufacturers is the new Maintenance Monitor. It provides the basis for condition-oriented servicing. By using the operating hours count, the oil level, or other criteria specified by the machine manufacturer, it determines the optimum time for the next service. Servicing and maintenance are therefore easier to plan and more cost-effective to the machine owner than with fixed maintenance intervals. Machine users also benefit from reduced downtimes.
The Maintenance Monitor provides the ability to define warning and alarm thresholds and transmits corresponding information via neat dashboards or through other channels. This creates additional reliability. In addition, machine manufacturers can use Clouver to compare machines of the same type with one another or to monitor prototypes. For detailed analyses, the measurement data from arbitrary sensors can be recorded alongside conventional usage data, for example in order to visualize vibrations, consumption, or wear and tear, as well as to analyze trends.
