Mainiway has demonstrated an industrial internet of things platform aimed at the manufacturing sector which will enable consumers to customise what is manufactured.
The company showcased its service at Hannover Messe 2016. The consumer to manfacturing (C2M) platform was taken through the process of customizing a gift.
The audience booked a gift on a tablet and logged in a customized E-commerce interface. After the order was complete, the audience was able to trace the whole process under backend big data center precisely – accepting direction, analyzing optimal manufacturing route, estimating timeline, choosing materials and arranging intelligent scheduling.
With the above preparation, the automation assembly line began the production.
The robot arms precisely grabbed a box according to the chosen color and placed it onto the assembling line. After CCD testing and seal cutting, it was delivered to the finished products zone and the audience was informed that it was to be delivered. It took 2 minutes for the audience to receive the gift with QR Code, and the process was totally transparent.
“Mainiway C2M is to overturn traditional C2B2M business model via connecting consumers to manufacturers directly and meeting the consumers’ customized demands,” says Ning Chen, CEO of Mainiway.
“It can find the best vendor with the help of big data analysis and industrial cloud, and allows consumers to trace the whole manufacturing process to guarantee the quality. Meanwhile, the precise manufacturing platform makes the automation assembly line more intelligent and informative.”
The US is said to have the most developed IoT and Germany tops the automation technology. Mainiway says its C2M combines the leading IoT and automation technology to shape a traceable e-commerce and intelligent manufacturing ecosystem.
