In the future, there will be a connection between the digital systems of ABP Induction Systems and Monitizer as part of the Norican Group (DISA, Simpson Technologies, Wheelabrator, StrikoWestofen and ItalPresseGauss). The two casting suppliers have agreed to work together to create an interface in which ABP Digital Services' furnace data will be exchanged with Norican's Monitizer® Suite.
ABP Digitalization Solution
ABP's online portal "myABP.com" is part of the ABP Digitalization Solutions. Casting plants are supplied here with documentation and special hardware and software to improve the intelligence of foundry plants and the communication of casting personnel. It also enables virtual emotional learning environments and a fully automated service application that includes a ticketing application and a 24/7 spare parts web store.
"Castings need to be able to bring their data together in one place, and everyone will benefit from this practical, constructive agreement," said Till Schreiter, president and CEO of ABP Induction Systems. "ABP and Norican are both highly motivated to contribute to the digitization of the foundry industry, and connections like this between different vendors are essential to supporting fully connected digital ecosystems. Without them, it's not possible for foundries to get full value from their data."
Monitizer is a modular, device- and brand-independent IIoT-platform for the casting industry and includes two main strands. Monitizer | DISCOVER collects, aggregates and displays data from multiple plants, lines or global locations, with easy-to-use reporting and visualization tools that quickly help drive significant process improvements. Monitizer | PRESCRIBE harnesses the power of AI to optimize the entire foundry process and has been proven to result in an average scrap reduction of 40 percent.
"I am pleased to announce that we will be working with ABP to support data transfers between our systems," said Nina Dybdal Rasmussen, head of the Monitizer brand at Norican. "The more data our customers can extract, the greater the potential for improvement - which is why we developed Monitizer as an IIoT-system that can connect all parts of the plant. ABP is enabling an important part of the foundry process and integrating data from their equipment will be of great benefit to our customers."
