Brokk launches online platform for demolition robots
Brokk has launched an online platform for connected Brokk demolition robots. Brokk Connect is a hardware and software solution uniquely designed for Brokk robots, that connects the robots to an online portal where users can track and manage their machines.
In addition to providing real-time data, it analyzes information to help Brokk owners optimize their machine utilization and machine uptime. Combined with a Brokk Uptime service agreement, it enables Brokk customers to fully focus on maximizing the value of their business.
The Brokk Connect hardware installed on the machine is connected to both the control unit and all the sensors on the machine. The Brokk Connect software is uniquely designed to process and analyze all the data from the robot to help Brokk owners and operators to always be in full control. To provide the best coverage and always-on operation, the connection to the robot is over the mobile phone network.
Through the online platform, users can locate and manage the entire robot fleet, get precise information of every activity, and alert you of any needs for attention or any service requirement.
"Since Brokk Connect is a solution developed by Brokk, and not a standard system just added to the robot, it can be completely designed to create maximum value for Brokk owners. Whether the user's focus is to improve machine utilization and business operation or to maintain and monitor the machine health, the system supports that," says Martin Krupicka, CEO of Brokk Group.
Brokk Connect will initially be launched in Sweden, Switzerland and Italy. Later in 2021, it will become available in the rest of Europe and North America.
Brokk Connect will be available for delivery on all new Brokk robots but can also be retrofitted on older models.
