Improved performance with Industrial Internet - already today
Industrial internet for Valmet means the ability to capture and share data and information from the pulp, paper and energy production machines and processes, and to utilize it for the benefit of our customers.
Valmet has the infrastructure to gather and analyze the data from our customers’ machines and processes. Together with our customers we move their performance forward by utilizing the data to adjust operations and to plan preventive maintenance. We have already implemented hundreds of solutions utilizing our Industrial Internet capabilities.
Evolution of Industrial Internet
The movement towards advanced Industrial Internet has been an evolution. Industries have step by step moved first from monitoring and controlling separate production process components to plant wide data collection and control, and later towards cross system optimization. This has enabled the sharing, analyzing and utilizing data between whole systems in a plant or a mill.
Over the past decades, these steps have significantly changed the production at mills, and is revolutionizing whole industries.
Today enabled by advanced communication technology and big data analysis, Industrial Internet is already moving to the next level– outside the production facilities. We believe that in the future we will see networks of different systems impacting each other, connecting different value chains, and thus changing the whole society we live in, in ways that we can hardly envision today.
