Smart Factory Solutions was set up to address the shortfall of Industry 4.0 data analysis solutions within the manufacturing industry. It captures, analyses and visualises key performance indicators from the manufacturing, logistics and utility sectors, using smart Industry 4.0 technology. Its smart solutions reduce the amount of time and resources required to capture and communicate critical information across an organisation and dynamically translate this data into actionable intelligence.
Secure OPC architecture
Smart Factory empowers employees to take the appropriate corrective action to help eliminate losses and promote a sense of ownership and collaboration. The company’s secure OPC architecture can communicate to virtually every type or brand of PLC. Smart wireless sensors facilitate the capturing of data from non-networked machines or semi-manual/manual processes. Intuitive mobile touch screen devices convert manual paperwork into lean digital workflows. Interactive smart digital displays eliminate the wasteful effort of preparing and printing paper reports and help to digitise the daily management process.

Innovation Partnership Feasibility Study
The Smart Factory & Nimbus partnership
Smart Factory approached the Nimbus Technology Gateway to implement an IoT platform to collect, store and visualise data coming from a factory setting and control devices through the OPC-UA protocol. The platform needed to be flexible to accommodate future deployments, provision redundancy and high availability. An additional project provides for visual assistance by illuminating relevant inventory containers during component packaging procedures.
“The work being delivered by the Nimbus Technology Gateway is pivotal to Smart Factory’s Industry 4.0 services offering. The team have been very innovative and the whole experience to date has certainly been worthwhile, amazing value and rewarding. We are currently planning further projects with the Nimbus Technology Gateway for 2019 and beyond.”
