With socialProduction, the mobile app and web application for injection molding machines, KraussMaffei combines the advantages of social media with state-of-the-art production monitoring technologies. The machines report live to users in secure chat rooms. socialProduction independently detects deviations in the production process earlier than ever before and takes machine monitoring into a new age.


Your benefits

Process Monitoring

The machine overview guarantees a quick overview of the machine park and helps to efficiently monitor each connected machine with intelligent production key figures. The history of the machine status is displayed in the form of a machine-time profile. The progress of current production orders is made transparently traceable. With socialProduction, every connected machine becomes an active team member: Via chat messages, the machines inform about important events such as parameter changes and alarms. The chat is also used for communication between employees and facilitates collaboration across production shifts and locations.

Production support

The production process of the injection molding machines is continuously monitored by a patented, self-learning method. Relevant anomalies in the process are detected at an early stage on the basis of all recorded machine data and communicated proactively to the users via notifications. The evaluation of the process parameters takes place completely autonomously and without any pre-configuration by the process owner.
