Konecranes x Process Genius

Konecranes had been following the machine tool world for almost 25 years, and there was a clear change in what customers, regardless of the company size, expect from service providers. During these past few years, the following questions had also been asked frequently within the industry: “How could we visualize production?” or “How is digitalization visible at Konecranes?”

Solution to these questions was technology partner Process Genius. The partnership started in 2021 by inventing Smart Factory -product. It’s based on technology provided by Process Genius and substantive knowledge by Konecranes. Smart Factory was tested by implementing it to Konecranes’ plant in Hyvinkää and received good results.

“The application has also revealed where waste hours occur. This consisted of, for example, set-up times, waiting, small alarms and other issues that disturb production. Now we are able to determine how waste hours are created, and are in a better position to reduce them and to improve the processes.”

Tuomas Patanen factory manager at the Konecranes component plant in Hyvinkää.

Konecranes found out that nobody had just a single system, they all have to use a number of different systems to get data about what was going on at their plant. In addition to this, various levels of the plant had very different needs. What’s more, various digital twins were already in use and also different portals, but nobody had a complete overview from a single location.

By combining Konecranes’ deep industry knowledge and expertise with Process Genius’ technological prowess, the Smart Factory solution is changing the game for manufacturers worldwide.

Konecranes and Process Genius offer a comprehensive solution that addresses the evolving needs and challenges of the manufacturing industry.
