Vapormatt 4.0

For any company to successfully achieve ultimate utilisation, efficiency and return on investment on a new or existing machine, they’ll need:

  • The resources to maintain and service the machine(s)
  • The correct and sufficient spares on site, with the right culture to replace them
  • Preventive software support to achieve the above.

Vapormatt 4.0 can help any company realise this, through a partnership approach.

So, what exactly is Vapormatt 4.0, or to give it its full description, ‘Industry 4.0’ and the ‘Industrial Internet of Things’ (IIoT)?

The fourth industrial revolution

Connecting the physical with the digital

Industry 4.0 takes the digital advances of recent decades, and combines them with physical ‘things’– machines for example – to create highly intelligent, efficient and interconnected systems and processes. An Industrial Internet of Things.

This revolutionary focus on interconnectivity, automation, machine learning, machine-to-machine communication (M2M) and real-time insights and analytics is creating manufacturing and industrial plants of the future – smart factories.

For example, AI can be used to detect corrosion inside a refinery pipe. Real-time production data can uncover additional capacity in a factory. Augmented reality (AR) can help workers operate construction machinery. And low-cost smart sensors can monitor maintenance needs, anticipating repair demands on production lines.

But Industry 4.0 and IIoT aren’t just about improving manufacturing efficiency. They’re about revolutionising the way your entire business operates and grows.

They’re about people too. Utilising the benefits of digital and real-world machines can better help your staff be more productive by automating tedious or lengthy tasks; freeing up their time for more important activities.

Higher productivity. Lower costs. Better ROI.

IIoT is an interlinked and holistic approach to manufacturing and the industrial sector. It brings together digital learning, real-world physical ‘things’, and people to deliver unprecedented levels of efficiency, all while reducing costs.
