The collaboration agreement between the three companies makes it possible to bring together their capacities to be able to provide a set of tools that will continuously analyse the operational status of machines installed in any part of the world. The fact that machine are connected in the "cloud” will make it possible to collect a large amount of information, the analysis of which through the use of big data techniques will facilitate the anticipation and prevention of potential failures and will thus result in an improvement of the productivity of manufacturing systems and in the optimisation of the consumption of energy, coolants, tools, etc.The Guipuzcoa industrial group, part of the Mondragon Corporation, is embarked on an ambitious project to offer all possibilities provided by implementing new information and communication technologies in manufacturing systems - also known as Industry 4.0 —. In addition to continue developing machinery for industries as demanding as the aeronautics, automotive, energy, railway, etc., we are working with companies from other sectors whose activity is complementary and allow us to offer comprehensive manufacturing solutions which have made us a business leader on an international level.The collaboration agreement between Danobat Group, IPF and CYRIL represents an example of collaborative innovation: where the knowledge of a “young” company that has over 50 facilities worldwide, and a new solution in the capture and processing of information is added to the experience in the supply of machines with cutting edge technologies integrated and of turnkey handling and manufacturing lines.The Danobat Group is the first Spanish machine tool manufacturer and supplier of advanced manufacturing solutions. With close to 1,200 employees, Danobat invests more than 9% of its turnover in R&D&i activities, exports over 90% of its production, and is represented worldwide with a sales network and technical service in 11 countries.IPF develops turnkey projects for the manufacturing industry of flexible polyurethane foam, and has developed management systems specific to this sector, but transferable to other areas of activity.CYRIL DATA SYSTEMS offers technology and developments for monitoring systems and Big Data and has developed a series of advanced systems that connect one or more machines, regardless of their location, in order to constantly transmit information regarding their status. With all this information stored, it is impossible to predict the behaviour of the machines and optimize their availability and productivity.
