IoT Customer Success Story

KELCH GmbH

Ensuring quality in pre-setters for high-precision tools

KELCH GmbH offers pre-setters for high-precision tools. The more precisely a pre-setter measures, the more precisely a customer’s machines will operate. To monitor and optimize the performance of their pre-setters, KELCH needed the ability to access setting tool data from anywhere and at any point in time. By integrating TeamViewer IoT into the pre-setters, both KELCH and their end customer can now monitor setting values and setpoint deviations — from any internet-enabled terminal device. Failure-prone processes can be identified and corrected immediately. As a result, KELCH customers can ensure product quality while proactively preventing imminent system failures and costly production downtimes.

Challenges

  • High-precision tool downtime or faulty tool settings are extremely costly for KELCH’s customers
  • Because KELCH pre-setters weren’t communication-capable, customers couldn’t detect possible issues in their production up front

Solution

  • KELCH integrates TeamViewer IoT into their pre-setters making them communication-capable through any internet-enabled terminal
  • End customers can remotely monitor the setting data of their high-precision tools in real-time
  • KELCH supports its customers in avoiding machine failures and scrap production, ultimately saving them both time and money
