Case Study: Felss

Building a foundation for smart,
digital connectivity with Nerve

"Nerve Blue provides a foundation for smart, digital connectivity of machines and also forms the basis for Felss’ Smart Services, which act as an entry point for customers into Industry 4.0.”

  • The Felss Group is constantly engaged in optimizing its processes to deliver resource-efficient, highly-reliable customer solutions in the form of machines and components.

    As Felss rolls out new innovative Smart Services, the company faces the challenge of accessing real-time data from its machines installed around the world.

    In order to support its Industry 4.0 vision, Felss has decided to work with the Nerve Blue software platform from TTTech Industrial.

  • Felss is shipping Nerve Blue with all of its new machines. The software can also be retrofitted into previously installed machines with minimal effort, as it runs on the edge device located in the control cabinet.

    With Nerve Blue, all critical machine, production, process, and component data is recorded and saved securely. This enables real-time analysis, data filtering, and knowledge generation directly at the source, thereby considerably reducing the volume of data transferred to IoT platforms.

    In parallel, the Nerve Blue Management System offers centralized administration for a variety of supporting functions in production, process monitoring and maintenance.

  • Nerve Blue provides a platform for Felss to offer its customers secure data connectivity on the machine, in the factory, and to the cloud. It opens up new avenues for the development and deployment of Smart Services such as the innovative Felss “Wear Detection Software”.

    The Nerve Management System also enables easy installation of new applications and software updates to ensure that Felss customers are always receiving the highest levels of service.
