New Milacron M-Powered Suite of Connected Services - European DebutMilacron's M-Powered suite of connected IoT solutions makes its European debut at Fakuma 2018. M-Powered is a portfolio of easy-to-use observational, analytical and support services that allow molders a competitive advantage through insight. M-Powered provides unique intelligence on a molders current operations and future needs, sharpens manufacturing quality and productivity, and optimizes uptime.
Milacron Chief Marketing Officer Giovanni Spitale stated, "Plastic parts: Making them better, faster and cost-effectively - That simple statement is at the core of everything Milacron does. Where does our IoT and connectivity offering play into all this? IoT optimizes our service availability by creating a technical link between our customers and Milacron technical experts. We use technology to be faster, more efficient and always available for our customers. We call it M-Powered."
M-Powered enabled machines currently include remote service capability with OEE and downtime analytics, and data collection with maintenance and parts recommendation intelligence. M-Powered also includes full API integration as a standard setup in addition to applicable hardware such as our Red/Green Boxes and dedicated network security.
Milacron M-Powered is based on "Big Data," qualitative art, and quantitative science and aims to continuously improve asset utilization and production efficiency. The Milacron M-Powered product offering will continue to advance and evolve, and Milacron is currently scheduling releases later this year to include services such as the M-Powered Fingerprint.
