Success story

Swedish OEM supplier reduces costs with resource and energy monitoring

Company Snapshot

A leading manufacturer of vacuum formed products in Europe. The product range consist of trunk liners, trunk and tool boxes as well as wind deflectors for trucks and parts for construction equipment.

Challenges

  • Small project team with limited resources
  • No live transparency on the shop-floor
  • Only historical OEE

Outcome

Live OEE and operation status on machines
Energy monitoring for LCC analysis of production
Reduced stops due to live alerting on critical machine
Environmental data collection to improve working conditions

Sonnländer increased asset productivity with OEE monitoring

Company Snapshot

Sonnländer, a subsidiary of EDEKA, is a leading producer of fruit juices and fruit-based products in Europe. With over 400 employees and 4 production facilities, it processes over 400,000 tons of fruit annually.

Challenges

  • Heterogeneous machine park
  • No live feedback from the shop floor
  • Internal resources need to focus on use cases, not infrastructure

Use cases in Automotive

OEE and Condition Monitoring

Optimize production, reduce costs, and improve quality through transparency and insights generated with configurable dashboards and detailed analytics

  • Increased OEE by easily identifying optimization potential

  • Increased machine availability with real-time data monitoring and alerts

  • Increased speed of root-cause problem solving due to increased transparency

Open-Source
Historian

Store and access your enterprise data in a state-of-the-art, open-source database instead of an outdated historian. Modern databases offer more stable capabilities at a fraction of the cost. Visualization tools like Grafana allow the automation engineer to explore and analyze shop floor data similar to historians.

  • Reduce licensing cost by leveraging open-source databases

  • Reduce data exploration time by consolidating OT and IT data sources into a single database

Energy & Resource Optimization

Reduce overall energy consumption and related costs with energy monitoring of each asset.

  • Reduced operating costs and energy consumption by analyzing influence of individual products and machine parameter settings

  • Meet regulatory requirements (ENEFG / Energy Efficiency Directive) to achieve energy consumption transparency by 2026

  • Reduced reaction time in case of faulty equipment due to alerts

Other industries

Pharmaceutical

Ensure regulatory compliance and enhance batch traceability

Food and Beverage

Improve food safety and streamline production

Chemical

Optimize process operations and improve safety protocols
