HEI Productivity: New Service Offering from Heidelberg Ensures Smooth Press OperationMay 16, 2013
At China Print in Beijing from May 14 to 18, 2013, Heidelberg will be presenting the Remote Monitoring function, the next stage in the expansion of Remote Service technology and an option available to customers as part of their service contract. Thanks to the Remote Monitoring function, Heidelberg Systemservice can continually monitor presses fitted with Prinect Press Center via a secure Internet connection and identify any irregularities early on. If the system picks up on potential malfunctions, a Heidelberg expert evaluates the data and summarizes it in a list of tasks. This list is worked through during the next scheduled service callout. The aim is to minimize unplanned downtimes. By intelligently combining all the tasks to be done during a service callout, the necessary measures can be carried out during one single visit. In addition, Remote Monitoring users also receive detailed reports on the status and performance of their presses.
For customers who require ultra-high press availability and have to be able to rely on their production systems around the clock, Remote Monitoring is an attractive way to boost their competitiveness.
"To ensure we can meet our customers' requirements by significantly reducing costs while also improving productivity, we are moving our entire service approach away from a more reactive malfunction process to increasingly active, planned callout management," said Bernhard Steinel, head of the Systemservice business area at Heidelberg.
