What Clouver can do you can see at the bullmer showroom in Mehrstetten (Germany). Four monitors present the data that Clouver has evaluated, how the IoT solution prepares information for decision-makers, machine operators, and production managers and the added value that production operations can get from it. The demo system uses live data from running machines.

Clouver from ProCom GmbH is an Industry 4.0 product for knife, laser, plasma, and waterjet cutting that makes processes more transparent and production more efficient. Clouver links production with its digital image. For example, production processes can be analyzed in detail, hidden production costs can be identified, and bottlenecks can be detected at an early stage.
