Crate.io & Zühlke: your shortcut to an industrial ecosystem

Unplanned stoppages, poor material availability, servicing, set-up times, wastage, speed reductions, start-up losses – somewhere in your production department there are some big efficiency gains waiting to be found.

But unearthing these gains takes data and algorithms. You need your own digital industrial ecosystem. Learn about the quickest route to setting one up in our on-demand webcast.

The road to your own digital industrial ecosystem is not easy. It involves billions of pieces of data extracted from a range of different systems, from a wide variety of sensors, in different formats and of variable quality. 

The upshot is that lots of businesses get no further than pilot projects and POCs. Few go the extra mile to establish their own digital industrial ecosystem.

What if we could offer you a shortcut to your very own digital industrial ecosystem? 

Crate.io and Zühlke are bringing together their expertise to offer you a simple pathway to processing, storing, querying and analysing your data in real time.

We have successfully helped manufacturers:

  • increase their overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) by minimising downtime, optimising set-up times and reducing product faults
  • increase the proportion of product delivered on time
  • reduce inventories
Industrial Digital Ecosystem

Exactly how it works is something you can learn all about in a joint webcast by Zühlke, Crate.io and Microsoft.

The road to setting up your own digital industrial ecosystem is far from simple, especially for companies with multiple locations and lots of plant. The main stumbling block is high levels of data heterogeneity. And that’s where crate.io’s revolutionary Crate.DB database system comes in. For large data volumes, it’s not just significantly faster than competitor products, it also features:

  • easy scalability: easily scalable for more data and users
  • SQL for machine data: ANSI SQL with elegant JSON support, full text search and dynamic schemas
  • industrial time series database: optimised for industrial real-time data volumes
  • IoT interfaces: simple IoT integration via Azure IoT Hub, Telegraf and other tools

Zühlke has been helping businesses get started with industrial digital ecosystems for many years. Thanks to our unique interdisciplinary expertise, we support businesses all the way from the initial idea to development of new, data-based business models. Using agile DevOps practices, we start small, but always keep our eye on the bigger picture. This means you enjoy genuine added value very quickly while your production department is gradually integrated into your digital industrial ecosystem.
