The First Step to Industrial IoT – Machine Monitoring

A smart tablet with a 3d bar graph and pie chart extending from its screen accompanied by a CNC machine and text that says "Machine Monitoring".Industrial IoT is the future of manufacturing because it allows plans to reduce costs and improve productivity and profitability without compromising product quality. However, if you want to truly take advantage of what IIoT can offer, you need to have accurate and real-time data to work with. That is why machine monitoring software is so essential to have.

What is Machine Monitoring?

Machine monitoring is the installation of machine monitoring systems connected to your equipment throughout your factory. With machine monitoring, you can bring older machines onto the network to collect data from them. The easy to use software can collect, analyze and translate data automatically in a way the provides fast and reliable information. The type of information that can be collected through machine monitoring software includes production level, work order status, quality results, the condition of the machine, and even downtime data.

Benefits of Machine Monitoring

There are many benefits of installing machine monitoring on your machines. Smart machines are the basis of IIoT and the best way to give yourself a competitive advantage in the manufacturing world.

Not only can you reduce waste with machine monitoring, but you can also improve efficiency across your entire production process. With improved communication across the organization, the manager and operator can also improve efficiencies. It’s not just immediate, real-time access to data that matters, but machine monitoring in conjunction with IIoT can also provide essential actionable insights.
