Automation Delivers Concrete Results
IoT Solution for Concrete Mixer
A concrete mixer manufacturer wanted to automate the concrete production process and eliminate human error. The goal was to offer a concrete mixer that could provide accurate and reliable reports of the product being poured while preventing excess costs for their buyers.
By installing sensors to track various aspects of machine operation and cement production via IoT, the manufacturer was able to bring more accuracy to the production process. Pressure sensors measure the critical slump component of the concrete, drum speed and total revolutions are tracked, and flow meters precisely measure how much water is added. Additional sensors were installed to decrease mixer downtime through predictive maintenance.
With their IoT solution in place, the manufacturer can help cement contractors eliminate the error and variability of the final cement product while delivering a more advanced machine. In addition to a more accurate system, the manufacturer utilizes maintenance tracing features to recommend and support aftermarket services. By counting drum revolutions, they can set up service intervals for parts like fins, chutes, and hoppers.
Applied Fluid Power CONNECT™, an industry-leading IoT solution built to manage your mobile or industrial machinery in the field or from the office.
