Engel Presents New Customer Portal and App

Engel Austria GmbH, Schwertberg, Austria, has presented its new customer portal and customer app e-connect during the NPE 2015 in Orlando, Florida/USA.

With the help of 3-D models, the needed spare parts can be selected very easily and quickly via the new customer portal (figure: Engel)

With e-connect, the injection molding machine manufacturer and automation expert intends to make processing service requests and ordering spare parts easier and faster, while also adding more transparency. With e-connect plastic processors can now request quotations and place orders online at any time. It is not necessary to know the exact designation of the spare parts that are needed.

In the system, all machines and manufacturing cells that Engel has delivered to a respective company are documented along with the corresponding parts lists. There are animated 3-D-models of many machine components, so the part that must be replaced, can quickly and easily be found and selected, with just a click. In addition, the online-catalog also contains the current prices for the parts as well as availability information. Should personal advice be needed, or if there are any questions, a number of diverse communication tools are provided such as text and video-conferencing modules, as well as an electronic whiteboard.

Via the Engel e-connect app, machine status and other operating figures can be kept track of in real time (figure: Engel)

Placing service requests via the Engel e-connect portal, is just as easy as ordering spare parts. Immediately after the order has been placed by the user, the request is automatically sent to the respective service team and processing can begin without delay. The system also provides the service technicians with access to the complete history of the plant, which speeds up their search for the solution. Once submitted, the processors can track the status of their service requests, making it possible to plan more reliably.

Service Requests via Smart Phone

The new customer app – which also carries the name Engel e-connect – makes it possible to send service requests to Engel from any location, directly from a smart phone. If the injection molding machines, robots and system solutions are linked via network, the app provides a complete overview of the machine park at all times. Machine status, alarm lists, production volume, cycle times and other operating figures are transmitted in real time to the mobile phone. In the case of unplanned downtime or in the event of a fault, the person responsible for the process can immediately initiate corrective measures via the app, without having to be physically present on site. Commencing with NPE2015, the app will be available in German and English for iOS and Android.
