Automation, where and when it is needed. This is Intermac's motto when it comes to the integration and automation of processes. The journey towards a perfect manufacturing process is not synonymous with the total replacement of the operator, but rather means applying intelligent automation to the process in an effort to reduce system inefficiencies to zero, avoid waste of time, and maintain human involvement where and when it provides an actual added value.
Thanks to SOPHIA, an IOT service platform, the process of factory digitalisation is further made a reality. This new platform, implemented in the wood sector and as of September also available for Intermac, provides, through an intuitive dashboard, real time information and data from machines distributed around the world. The data collected makes it possible to monitor production, analyse the functioning of the machinery, identify malfunctions, assist clients in maintenance operations, order replacement parts in less time, and conduct predictive maintenance.
