A common misconception we hear about IIoT and Industry 4.0 is that these technologies are the future of the manufacturing industry or just beyond manufacturers grasp. Many think the transformation is too costly, too challenging, or both!
Getting Started is Easier Than You Think
We understand that even for manufacturers who are ready for industry 4.0, the process can seem overwhelming. What do I need? How do I get it? Where do I begin? Starting your digital transformation doesn’t have to be so hectic.
With FreePoint, here is all it takes to begin your digital transformation:
- Connect Machines
- We non-invasively connect FreePoint sensors to your machines
- Transfer Data to the Cloud
- We connect your machines to our ShiftWorx software through a PC on your shop floor
- Visualize Data
- You display the collected data on the shop floor using LCD screens
The Sooner, the Better
These first, small steps are really all it takes, and the sooner you can get started – the better! By deploying these technologies today on your shop floor, you will be able to establish baselines and collect data that will help you make more educated, data-based decisions in the future. It’s honestly never been easier!
Rather than a months-long process, FreePoint solutions can be installed non-invasively to any machine over the course of roughly 20 minutes – without the need for your IT people’s involvement. Once connected to the ShiftWorx platform, you can start purchasing whatever tablets, or LCD screens you need to visualize your data and engage your operators on the shop floor.
At FreePoint Technologies, this can all happen within 24 hours, and less than 20 minutes of machine downtime. To get a free quote or schedule a live demonstration, contact us today!
