Connected Factory Solutions powered by Digital Blanket® platform

Digital Blanket®, FlamencoTech’s Digital IoT Platform, edge appliance and professional services spearheads an organization’s digital transformation journey linking IoT data with real-time analytics and digital twin to model and to create Connected Factories. Our platforms and edge solutions connect and collect information from machines, equipment, sensors, meters, pumps, motors etc, then analyse and act on that information to control machines, maintenance, processes, logistics, assets, energy, safety, environment & facilities.

We help factory managers extract more out of their physical assets digitally and make it possible to bring data-driven decision making to new realms of human activity thereby optimizing the performance of systems and improving the performance of factories and its workers.

Connected Factory 4.0 solutions apply to various manufacturing processes across industries. Standardized processes lends itself to IoT led Digital transformation.

Some core drivers for Connected Factory 4.0 are:

  • Predictive maintenance
  • Asset tracking & Worker safety
  • Tracking of pharmaceuticals to reduce counterfeits
  • Fleet & logistics management
  • ESG compliance
  • Effective utilization of assets & space
  • Lower operational costs
  • Interoperability & security of legacy or proprietary systems

Challenges and Solution Model: Connected Factory 4.0

Connected Factory and Industry 4.0 solutions apply to discrete or process manufacturing, core manufacturing across Oil & Gas, Automotive, Cement, Pharma, Energy and more. Standardized processes in play in manufacturing lend itself to IoT led Digital transformation. Predictive maintenance of manufacturing equipment, location tracking of inventory, tracking of pharmaceuticals to reduce counterfeits, worker safety zones and lone worker tracking, managing fleet and logistics, machine OEE, meeting energy goals and ESG compliance, effective utilization of assets & space, operating at lower cost and factory compliance norms have become core drivers for a Connected Factory.

Interoperability & security have become primary concerns and challenges that needs to be addressed while working in these environments. Some of these systems have a legacy background and many are walled¬ garden proprietary systems.

Our Digital Blanket® Platform and Edge solutions address these needs to help factories and plants become smart and intelligent. The Platform can readily complement & integrate with existing manufacturing support Systems (ERP, CAM, CIM, CMMS, IBMS, BIM) and connect using range of protocols.
