"S.M.A.R.T. Dialog transmits process data and production key figures permanently and in real time to any end device belonging to our customer. Operating statuses and sensor data are saved permanently, and can be called up at any time to analyze machine efficiency or to document the product quality. This enables processes to be improved quickly, thereby reducing costs and increasing productivity.“

Together with SCS as an equal Industry 4.0 partner, NGR implemented a system that gave the company real-time access to its machine data. The objective of this was to analyze and interpret this data for end customers. Building on this, functionalities should be implemented for predictive maintenance.
