Prym punching machine gets introducdd to the Internet of Things
One of the oldest german family-owned companys, Prym Fashion GmbH, transformed one of its traditional punching machines and introduced it to the Internet of Things with the help of the FIR at RWTH Aachen University. Es a result, the quality of the machine, which is used to prepare the insertation of snap buttons, increased. By making this machine compatible with the Internet of Things, Prym makes use of all the advantages the digitial connection of machines has to offer, such as the generation and collection of data, which helps companies to make decisions faster than before. Prym and FIR at RWTH Aachen University took this first step towards the Internet of Things together and created the first functioning IoT-Prototype in just twelve weeks.
