Monitizer® | GLOBAL

Monitor melt and much more

Unlock your data potential

Powered by Norican Group, Monitizer® | GLOBAL is a powerful, easy to use platform that enables die casting foundries to access and analyse performance and operating data from any piece of equipment - including non-Norican equipment – wherever and whenever needed. Even if your equipment is not yet IoT enabled, it doesn’t matter. 

Want to see how your StrikoMelter is performing in real time? No problem. How its performance compares to furnaces at other sites. Easy. How that data relates to complete foundry performance through analysis of wider equipment and sensor data? Read on.

Track, troubleshoot, improve

This enables something special. With Monitizer® | GLOBAL StrikoWestofen customers can not only access complete process data (including data from legacy software systems) from different lines and foundry locations. You can also compare and contrast information to benchmark performance of different machines, die casting lines and production plants worldwide. Whatever you need is at your fingertips.

Detailed data analysis and easy-to-digest dashboards - tailored to monitor and present the KPIs that matter to you - make casts completely traceable, and troubleshooting performance-improving adjustments, simple.

Track KPIs over time. Spot when seemingly identical lines or sites are performing differently and understand why. Receive notifications when under or overrunning set limits. Intervene before unplanned stoppages and defects occur. It all adds up to less scrap, less downtime and optimised processes.

How it all works

1. Recopilación 

Icono de recopilación 

  • NoriGate recopila los datos, les aplica marcas de tiempo y los cifra antes de enviarlos a la nube.
  • Al centralizar y almacenar todos los datos en la nube se mejora la accesibilidad de los datos.
  • Definición del acceso de los usuarios con la gestión de usuarios.
  • Exportación sencilla de los datos a través de API RESTful.

2. Procesamiento

Icono de procesamiento

  • Los cálculos matemáticos se pueden aplicar a cualquier dato para generar datos significativos nuevos.
  • Hay determinados KPI que se pueden calcular y almacenar como datos nuevos.

3. Visualización

Icono de visualización

  • Acceso rápido a datos históricos y en tiempo real fáciles de leer.
  • Creación de paneles de control personalizados de manera sencilla.
  • Diseño de widgets propios.
  • Supervisión y monitorización de los datos del proceso y del estado de la máquina.

4. Notificación

Icono de notificación

  • Definición de umbrales y recepción de notificaciones por exceso o por defecto.
  • Supervisión y monitorización automáticas de los datos.
  • Notificación por correo electrónico o Slack (aplicación móvil).
  • Avisos solo para el personal definido.

Monitizer® | GLOBAL for StrikoMelter

As soon as NoriGate technology is installed and connected to the internet you can easily access your StrikoMelter performance data via your browser using the Monitizer | Global platform. Create your own KPIs and display them in real time. Receive notifications in case of exceeding or falling short of specified limit values. Intervene before deviations or unplanned downtimes occur.

Here’s just a taste of what you could see and do:

  • Ensure foundry managers and/or maintenance teams are notified immediately if furnace cleaning or charging times have varied from protocols, scenarios which – if unchecked - could otherwise result in unplanned downtime or reduced productivity.
  • Keep an eye on energy consumption, for instance through instant alerts linked to hot gas baffle closure during free melting. Automated reporting on free melting can also be set up to ensure your foundry manager can always check maximum savings are being achieved. In fact, with Monitizer® | GLOBAL for StrikoMelter you can set up automatic calculations to run constantly in order to better understand gas consumption over a set period of time, or overall energy consumed per shift.
  • Troubleshoot technical issues before they have a chance to develop. For example, by monitoring temperature ratios throughout the furnace it becomes easy to spot potential problems – perhaps a thermocouple that has been drawn into the bath and requires attention to avoid unnecessary wear on the refractory. With Monitizer® | GLOBAL for StrikoMelter, your foundry manager will know the minute a reading is off so that necessary action can be taken.
