In making smart use of connectivity, data monitoring and business intelligence, Atlas Copco helps customers to get a better view on their maintenance needs, to keep up their production uptime and to improve wherever possible their operating cost in minimizing their energy consumption.
Until now, service of compressors and compressor rooms was either repetitive (service contracts ensuring regular visits from a service technician) or re-active (an unforeseen problem requiring an immediate intervention). This doesn’t need to be the case anymore: The SmartLink data monitoring program allows for either Atlas Copco and/or their customers to monitor their productivity 24/7.
SmartLink offers businesses a complete insight of their compressed air production. It helps to predict potential problems (and thus anticipate them); it shows how and where the production can be optimized and energy can be saved (and thus money can be gained).
SmartLink is an easy to install, efficient to consult, simple to tailor data monitoring program. Data are gathered, compared, analyzed on the fly and when needed, warnings are sent out in time. This allows local service organizations to plan and prepare their interventions. As a result service efficiency increases, precious time is gained and money is saved.
Over the coming years it is Atlas Copco’s ambition to integrate SmartLink into 100,000 air production installations worldwide and help customers benefit from the learnings and insights it offers. Not only will it improve our and their efficiency, it will make air production more sustainable.
