Hapman, a global manufacturer of standard and custom bulk material handling equipment, announces an initiative with Dattus, an industrial Internet-of-Things (IIoT) platform, to bring Industrial IoT value to its customers.

The sizeable investment in this initiative allows Hapman the ability to bring new solutions to customers that will ensure equipment performance, availability, and reliability. By working with Dattus, Hapman is continuing its long-standing tradition of customer support and innovation in material handling and processing.

“Our goal is provide our customers with the tools they need for predictive maintenance and the prevention of unplanned downtime,” said Greg Patterson, Hapman’s vice president. “We will provide powerful integration capabilities for our customers, who will then be able to integrate valuable data from their machines into their existing platforms.”

IIoT is a rapidly-growing tech revolution that is best known on the consumer-side for fitness trackers, smartwatches, and smart home equipment. IIoT refers to a whole world of small, affordable, and connected computers and sensors that enables organizations to create a “nervous system” for their operations.

The Hapman/Dattus IIoT solution provides the infrastructure and software necessary to collect and analyze data from virtually any end-user connected device, such as a PC, smartphone, or tablet. Their robust analytics capabilities enables real-time monitoring and predictive maintenance, as well as operational insights that can be applied back to the factory floor.
