Connected machines and cloud-based data storage are transforming how businesses collect, access and analyze data, according to Tomra Sorting Recycling, a sensor-based sorting equipment manufacturer based in Germany. The company has released a new e-book, “Digitalization – Connect to Enhance Productivity in the Recycling Industry,” that looks at machine connectivity and data-driven process trends in the recycling industry.
Through embedded sensors and cloud-based reporting, optical sorters can provide data that drives strategic management processes, Tomra Recycling says in a news release on its new e-book. Near real-time data provides insights into production gaps, allows companies to react fast to change and improves recycled product quality and throughput.
Tomra says its new e-book is free to download. The e-book examines stored service reports, spare parts orders and product manuals that improve machine maintenance efficiency. The e-book also discusses how leveraged production data, combined with advanced analytics, may result in the development of new sorting technologies and processes.
