Digital transformation in metal processing

Success story Deutsche Nickel

Learn how Deutsche Nickel implements its first productive use cases in already six weeks with the help of an actionable digital roadmap.

“We are simultaneously implementing a whole range of projects and use cases in the area of digital transformation. For this, we chose Cybus and their Connectware because they are the only ones that meet our requirements for brownfield implementation with a future-proof data infrastructure. Our first use case was implemented in a very short time.”


Wolfgang Raulf, Managing Director,
Deutsche Nickel GmbH

Traditional company meets digital transformation

The requirements for digital solutions in brownfield scenarios are high. The right approach and future-proof technology are therefore crucial.

Deutsche Nickel GmbH is one of the largest manufacturers of nickel and nickel alloy wire and rod. With digital transformation projects and an action-oriented digitalization roadmap, Deutsche Nickel successfully meets challenges such as increasing demand, high quality requirements and production efficiency. Together with Cybus, Deutsche Nickel implements the first IIoT use case in just six weeks and brings smart manufacturing and process transparency to its shop floor.

Towards digital transformation in just six weeks

Any digitalization project can be realized with the optimal data infrastructure

In just one and a half days, Deutsche Nickel has developed a digitalization roadmap with result-oriented and individually tailored use cases in the Digital Roadmap Workshop with Cybus. Where previously challenging requirements slowed down their digitization projects, Connectware’s industrial data infrastructure now makes it possible to implement all planned steps with the latest technology.



“Cybus enables us to implement parallel projects centrally and uniformly – even across different phases. At the same time, we remain strategically and technologically independent and have sustainable cost savings along our digitization roadmap.”


Felix Ebberg, Head of Industrial Projects,
Deutsche Nickel GmbH
