Remarkably feedback from the special media to our joint presentation with Google and relayr at the Hannover Messe 2018
According to a recent release, Google and relayr, a provider of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) solutions, have teamed up to helped Aluvation, an aluminum heat treatment company, disrupt the way automotive companies traditionally process aluminum components for vehicles.
Through a “Heat Treatment as a Service” model, relayr’s IoT platform-connected heat treatment modules from Aluvation now take a few days to install, a massive improvement on the previously standard 6-12 months of installation time.
“The compelling IoT connectivity of our micro factories that relayr provides via the Google Cloud Platform is a crucial part of our business model,” said Markus Belte, CEO and founder, Aluvation. “The relayr solution not only enables basic tracking functions, it also provides sophisticated predictive maintenance allowing us to provide uptime guarantees to our clients, remote monitoring and adjustment of the production process from our central technology center, and the new business concept of aluminum heat treatment as a service.”
Relayr and Google are also announcing a kick-start program for IIoT startups and small to mid-size industrial organizations who manufacture, operate, and service industrial equipment, such as pumps, motors, elevators, and appliances. With access to relayr’s expertise and offerings ranging from technology and insurance to finance solutions, the kick-start program helps companies successfully transition from CAPEX (capital expenditures) to OPEX (operating expenses), as well as reach target business goals such as equipment uptime, service-level agreements, and uptime guarantee-based models.
“We are excited to partner with relayr to help industrial companies identify precise business parameters that can be optimized by using IoT. By offering credit for Google Cloud IoT Platform and relayr’s wealth of experience and technology solutions, we can help small and mid-size companies set clear ROI and business objectives prior to implementation,” said Antony Passemard, head of product management, Google Cloud IoT. “We believe this business outcome-focused kick-start program will enable industrial customers to confidently invest in their digital migration; and leverage the services provided by relayr and Google for financial success now and in the future.”
