Tyrolit cooperates with ToolSense in smart interconnectionPublished 16/9 at 14:43
Tyrolit is working closely with the Viennese start up ToolSense GmbH and Deutsche Telekom to help connect construction machines.
The ‘Internet of Things’ (IoT), enables intelligent communication between machines, with Tyrolit now implementing this innovation with ‘MoveSmart’ technology. “Networked machines and digital solutions are becoming more and more important, also in our sector. We see that our customers need a universal, cross vendor solution. For that, the industry standard with ToolSense and Deutsche Telekom is ideally suited,” says Wolfgang Wiefler, managing director, Tyrolit Construction Products.
Machines that have worked in isolation, and those which have only been used in offline operations, are now centrally connected by one single device. As a result, the barely digitalised concrete drilling and cutting technology segment has taken a big leap forward. “It is our goal to design the construction site of the future to be networked, fully digitalised and highly industrialised. This requires machines that speak the same IoT language. Only then can the customer realise the desired increase in productivity,” states Alexander Manafi, chief executive, ToolSense GmbH.
Tyrolit’s WSE1621 compact, reliable and powerful wall saw system is the first to feature MoveSmart technology. The all-rounder with its particularly lightweight system components as well as numerous digital equipment attributes, collects important data for optimal and smooth operation. Via its intelligent communication interface, the data is available anytime, whether in the office or on mobile devices, simplifying work for the user.
ToolSense enables contractors to react flexibly and quickly as they will always know where their machinery, when equipped with Tyrolit MoveSmart, is located. Furthermore, they can assess which machine was in use, and for how long, whether there was unplanned downtime, or whether a service is pending. All this data supports a more economical and ecological operation and allows customers to plan more efficiently.
