In the May 2022 issue of the "Diplomatisches Magazin", we provided information about the value of machine data evaluation and the possibility to control and intervene via MES (manufacturing execution systems). Read the full article here!

For a long time, production management meant on-site monitoring to make sure that everything fit, that everything ran smoothly.

The Mühlbauer Group in Roding, Germany, offers solutions where it is particularly important that ultimately everything works perfectly. Because here, the safety of millions of people is at stake. We are talking about identity documents, the machines that produce them and the systems that make them work. It is essential that every production step is meticulously monitored, controlled, and that any error is immediately detected and eliminated.
