Building a Smarter Factory

The benefits of Industry 4.0 and Smart Factory are compelling. Let Sulzer help guide your journey.

Systems Integration

The average factory generates 1 Terabyte of data per day but evaluates less than 1%. Sulzer integrates all industry 4.0 data with enterprise ERP, BI, CRM, and Ticketing Systems to maximize usage and value, end-to-end.

Big Data & Analytics

The true value of data is reached when made accessible in its entirety for evaluation from anywhere in the enterprise. Sulzer combines data from production machines, enterprise systems, and supply chains and embeds it within the analytics process to create actionable insights.

AI – IIoT & Edge Computing

IIoT and AI are a perfect fit: they both need compute-intensive technology to perform from the DC to the edge. Sulzer efficiently integrates AI, IIoT, & edge computing with manufacturing processes to derive the high quality operational insights.

Cyber & Data Decurity

Industry 4.0 delivers undeniable value but it brings with it a hoard of new cybersecurity threats. Sulzer protects industrial systems, communications, and IIoT devices from potential cyber attacks, for secure and reliable operations.

Minimize operational downtime

Using AI, NLP, and ML, our solutions tap into vast quantities of unstructured data to intelligently manage performance and fault alarms. We predict bottlenecks, potential faults, and performance inefficiencies.
