IoT-Based Anomaly Detection System for Japenese Plastic Molding Company

  • Industry: Manufacturing
  • Location: Japan


The client is a plastic injection molding company in Japan. The client felt the need for a sophisticated real-time equipment monitoring system. Due to the lack of a monitoring system, the client operated in a state of flux, with machine statuses slipping through the cracks and anomalies going unnoticed. Timely alerts for equipment issues, an essential link in the operational chain, needed to be more robust. This critical deficiency translated to a significant loss in operational efficiency, leaving the company vulnerable to prolonged downtimes and compromised productivity.

Imagine a bustling factory floor where every machine's status is a heartbeat of productivity. Picture the urgency of seamless communication, the need for instant alerts, and the uninterrupted flow of operations. This case study delves into a transformative initiative to revolutionize clients' manufacturing processes. Introducing a comprehensive system that helps solve machine problems and thus prevent system downtime.

Tntra designed a custom software application to help the client rapidly evolve with the help of cutting-edge technologies. Together with the client, Tntra envisioned an innovative solution anchored in IoT sensor technology. This provided real-time monitoring and swift anomaly detection, historical data access, and seamless communication channels, ultimately leading to heightened productivity and minimized downtime. This case study promised invaluable insights into how technology could reshape manufacturing workflows.
