Ice processing machine - Overview
About the project
The client wanted to develop a solution to make sensor data from its ice machines accessible to its customers with the help of a cloud platform. Using the WM Connect system, the ice rink staff and manager can keep track of energy consumption, wear and tear parts and running times of individual machine components in an overview. This makes it possible to plan maintenance work in advance, maximise uptime and save on energy costs. But WM's innovation does not stop there. In addition to the WM Connect system, engineers have developed a unique autopilot for the latest WM ice machines. Thanks to the developed application, the user can control and configure the autopilot remotely via direct communication between the device and the machine. The developed cloud platform also enables over-the-air updates to continuously improve the machine software and ensure safety. On-site service interventions can thus be minimised.

The successful development of the WM Connect system enables the monitoring of sensor data from the ice processing machines via a cloud platform. The connection to control the world's unique autopilot enables ice foremen to operate the machine remotely. The resulting increase in uptime, savings in energy costs and minimization of on-site service makes the project a success.
