Case Study

Global tool manufacturer reduces energy costs

About the project

A leading company in tool manufacturing digitizes its production processes and uses data to reduce energy costs. To improve energy efficiency and visualize energy consumption, real-time energy data is made available on dashboards by Cybus Connectware.

The globally leading company in the field of precision technology with several production and sales locations worldwide specializes in solutions for clamping and gripping technology.






Energy data access in real-time


Machinery and tool maker





For us, this project was another step towards making production more efficient and also more intelligent. It was particularly important to us that we remain strategically and technologically independent.

It will be exciting when we connect even more solutions via this approach. It is all the more pleasing that we created a reference case which others can also benefit from.”
