Maximising Production Efficiency

Digital transformation enables TOMRA to gather and analyse vast amounts of data from sorting and grading machines.

The Digital Operations Center remotely monitors equipment, alerting customers to any unusual behaviour. In case of technical issues, its Remote Assist service allows service engineers to access machines remotely, minimising downtime and ensuring efficient troubleshooting.

Augmented Reality for Enhanced Support

TOMRA’s remote experts provide specialised support to customers and service engineers. With the app, experts can virtually guide technicians through troubleshooting processes, just as if they were physically present. This augmented reality tool enhances efficiency, reduces travel costs, and serves as a valuable training resource for on-site personnel.

Real-time Data Insights

TOMRA Insight as a cloud-based customer portal and data platform extracts real-time data from sorting machines and presents it in easily understandable graphics. This empowers users to make instant improvements in line efficiencies and product consistency. Additionally, detailed retrospective data allows TOMRA and its customers to collaboratively identify further efficiency gains and make informed operational and strategic decisions.
