Digitizing Legacy Machines

Manufacturers that are upgrading their operations often deal with costly older equipment that is difficult to digitize. Replacing or modifying these legacy machines sometimes is too expensive or would disrupt production or void a warranty. Manufacturers need a solution to enhance the capabilities of their legacy machines without having to replace them.


The team developed a sensor retrofit kit that communicates data to a cloud dashboard. These turnkey kits are now commercially available and are compatible with multiple sensor types, making this a flexible option to help manufacturers gain transparency for a variety of use cases from cycle time tracking to machine health monitoring.
