This type of data analysis requires a certain infrastructure of hardware and software. For this reason, Schubert machines have been equipped, for several years now, with the highly secure GS.Gate industrial gateway. Schubert packaging systems can also be retrofitted with the GS.Gate. The data can be read out and evaluated via the gateway’s customer portal. The new 4YOU Services from Schubert are linked to the customer portal: The five digital CARE services expand the scope of services – module by module – and offer customers the right packages to meet every requirement, from the simple CARE IIoT ready basic version to the individual CARE Customized module. The selection can of course be regularly adapted to suit the changing needs and circumstances surrounding the asset.
CARE IIoT ready includes, for example, GS.Gate and access to the customer portal with a free OEE analysis in the weekly review and the option for extended digital services. With CARE Everywhere, Schubert customers receive more comprehensive data material, regular software updates, download options and mobile access to the customer platform. From the CARE Analytical package onwards, the Schubert experts support the targeted and individualised evaluation and filtering of data via internet access. Included are, for instance, a standardised OPC-UA machine interface for connecting further lines, as well as the calculation and display of the compressed air and power consumption of the Schubert machine. With CARE Data, customers also have the option of importing this data into their own systems. The last package, CARE Customized, offers the greatest possible freedom in the configuration of services. With CARE, manufacturers benefit from greater machine availability, more efficient processes and more sustainable production – all in line with their specific wishes and requirements.
