Alstom Transport India Ltd is a part of the Railroad Rolling Stock Manufacturing Industry and has been a strategic partner in supporting India's freight revolution and passenger movement. Alstom has been at the forefront of introducing several breakthrough technologies in India, including world-class rolling stock, rail equipment and infrastructure, signaling and services.
Alstom, Coimbatore carries out special processes of welding and adhesive bonding, which require the chemical materials to be stored at a specific temperature to maintain the quality of the products.
|For example, the company uses Anabond adhesives for their processes, which are required to be maintained at 20 degrees Celsius.|
Alstom to deliver a perfect product needed to maintain all the components in its perfect condition.
Alstom had a system in place where the concerned person would go to the refrigeration room twice in 24 hours and note down the temperature values manually.
This method was highly reliant on manual work, which slowed down the entire manufacturing process and did not allow the company for any data analysis. This raised questions about efficiency and reliability.
Automation of such processes became a necessity to keep up with the precision of products and technology. Alstom wanted a robust, reliable and quick way to monitor temperature conditions of their storage. Their current system of monitoring had more cons than pros, which made them look for an alternative solution.
Alstom started to look for a device with an alert system and explored their options for a better manufacturing process. During this research, the company considered multiple options, including procuring an IoT module and making the alert system itself. The client came across Bolt IoT, a company offering IoT-based enterprise solutions.
- Bolt IoT Blake is a product that alerts the user in case of temperature threshold crossing while constantly logging the data on the cloud. Alstom's basic problem of unreliability and inconsistency in monitoring was solved by Blake.
The technical features of Blake, including alert system through different media such as:
made remote monitoring of the Alstom manufacturing components easier and more efficient.
Blake does not just stop at alerts but provides cloud storage facilities for logging of data, which allows the user to backtrack the data and analyze it.
VIEWING THE DATA
Alstom's journey to Bolt IoT was not focused on one reason. Multiple turns and rounds created this journey. Despite having an ideal product, Bolt IoT responded to the customer request the quickest which made the initial impact on the client. The client service was carried out excellently, and Bolt IoT provided OTA (Over-The-Air) updates to the device which kept the company in line with the new features.
A device with a plethora of features with upscaling functions at a reasonable price and a comfortable lead time-maintained customer satisfaction and brand loyalty.
Blake temperature and humidity monitoring solution is an automated internet-connected device that cancels out the cons of manual-driven monitoring.
Blake temperature and humidity monitoring solution has improved the entire process of business. The device has not only replaced the traditional process of manual monitoring but has added value to the business with its data analysis and upscaling feature.
RECEIVING THE ALERTS VIA CLOUD
Alstom's partnership with Bolt IoT has brought innovative solutions to their manufacturing processes, improving the efficiency and reliability of their operations.
With the help of Bolt IoT Blake temperature and humidity monitoring solution, Alstom has been able to eliminate the shortcomings of their previous manual-driven monitoring system and streamline their operations.
The success of this partnership highlights the importance of seeking out innovative solutions and collaborating with industry experts to drive business growth.
