You can't manage what you don't measure" (Peter Drucker, 1954)

Connect600 uses Industry 4.0 technology to give operators and managers more control and insight into their machine shop, by providing information needed to drive increases in productivity, all at the touch of a button.

Connect600 is a cloud-based system that uses machine sensors to monitor and deliver real-time data and analytics, shown on virtual dashboards to monitor machine productivity, maintenance and production quality to drive optimal manufacturing performance.

As Cliff Brereton says within the interview embedded below: “Everybody wants and needs productivity. And you can’t manage what you don’t measure. Connect 600 gives you exactly that.”

The system can be fitted on any machine type, vintage or make to seamlessly integrate your factory, resulting in:

  • More uptime
  • Faster throughputs
  • Higher yields
  • Fewer rejects
  • Less maintenance overhead

And ROI is measurable within months!
