Tyrolit Teams Connect Construction Machines
The “Internet of Things” (IoT) enables intelligent communication between machines. This development has seen a new manufacturer-independent language for construction machines in concrete drilling and cutting technology being developed. Tyrolit is now implementing this innovation with the so named “MoveSmart” technology.
“Networked machines and digital solutions are becoming more and more important in our sector,” says Wolfgang Wiefler, managing director, Tyrolit Construction Products. “We see that our customers need a universal, cross-vendor solution. For that, the industry standard with ToolSense and DeutscheTelekom is ideally suited.”The development has seen one tool being used to seamlessly take over administration of the machinery. Machines that up to now have been isolated, and those which have only been used in offline operations, are now centrally connected by one single device. As a result, the barely digitalized concrete drilling and cutting technology segment has now taken a big leap forward.
The compact Tyrolit WSE1621 is a reliable and powerful wall saw system, and the first in the world that features the MoveSmart technology. The lightweight system components incorporate numerous digital equipment attributes that collect 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 develops solutions to enable contractors to react flexibly and quickly as they will know where MoveSmart-equipped machinery is located, when each piece was in use and for how long, whether there was unplanned downtime, or whether a service is pending. Research is underway wo retrofit older models with this new technology.
