Norican Group’s Monitizer intelligence platform will have a customized link to ABP Induction Systems’ digital control technology, and the two suppliers will collaborate to create an interface that will share furnace data from ABP Digital Services with the Monitizer® Suite of control technologies.
“I am delighted to announce that we will work with ABP to support data transfers between our systems,” stated Nina Dybdal Rasmussen, who heads the Norican Monitizer brand. “The more data our customers can extract, the greater the potential for improvement – which is why we built Monitizer as an IIoT system capable of connecting all parts of the line. ABP enables a vital part of the foundry process, and integrating data from their equipment will be a huge benefit for our joint customers.”
Monitizer is a modular, equipment- and brand-agnostic IIoT platform for metalcasting. Monitizer | DISCOVER collects, aggregates, and displays data from multiple equipment, lines, or global sites, with reporting and visualization tools to suggest process improvements. Monitizer | PRESCRIBE uses artificial intelligence to optimize foundry processes, e.g., reducing average scrap by 40%.
ABP’s “myABP.com” is a portal that allows foundries to gather digital documentation from process equipment, with specialized hardware and software that improve equipment management and skills while enhancing communication between foundry personnel. It also offers virtual “emotional learning environments,” digital twins, and a fully automated service application that includes a ticketing application and a 24/7 spare parts web store.
“Foundries need to be able to bring their data together in one place and everyone will benefit from this practical, constructive agreement,” according to ABP Induction Systems president and CEO Till Schreiter. “ABP and Norican are both highly motivated to help digitalize the foundry industry and linkages like this between different suppliers are vital to support completely connected digital eco-systems. Without them, it will be impossible for foundries to extract the full value from their data.”
