  • IIOT, or Industrial Internet Of Things, is part of the Industry 4.0 revolution that is now sweeping through the global industrial landscape. Squadron specializes in guiding companies to implement such an IIOT evolution. Current production lines and processes are already highly automated. Increasing the productivity of existing machines ensures the greatest efficiency (gains).

    Just think about:

    • Predictive maintenance instead of periodic maintenance, or even instead of reactive maintenance.
    • Eliminate changeover times or waiting times of an automated production line.
    • Continuous live monitoring of the utilization rate of a CNC machine park in order to optimize production.

    Data plays a key role in this: the more data (live data or logging) you have about a production process, the easier and faster you can draw conclusions to increase productivity.


    Automated installations internally use many sensors, measuring instruments, PLCs, etc. to control the machine and monitor the process. Taking this valuable internal data outside the installation and centralizing it is the basis of IIOT.

    All production machines and processes in one factory are linked, as it were. In this way the ultimate 'Smart Factory' is created. The relevant process data is captured on every installation, transferred to the network and secured, whether or not in the Cloud.

    The continuous capture of process data provides an enormous wealth of information. Relevant machine parameters can be zoomed in from a central level to perform analyses. The OEE of installations can also be continuously monitored to analyze productivity.

    In short: the correct implementation of an industrial internet of things network can significantly increase the efficiency and productivity of a company.
