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 analyses information to help Brokk owners optimise machine utilisation and machine uptime. Combined with a ‘Brokk Uptime’ service agreement, it enables Brokk customers to fully focus on maximising the value of their business.
Brokk Connect is an online platform developed especially for connected Brokk robots. The solution includes both hardware and software that are unique for the specific requirements of the operation and management of a customer’s robots. The Brokk Connect hardware installed on the machine is connected to both the control unit and all the sensors on the machine. The software is uniquely designed to process and analyse all the data from the robot to help Brokk owners and operators to be in full control, with the connection to the robot being over a mobile phone network.
Through the online platform, users can locate and manage the entire robot fleet, get precise information on every activity, and receive alerts regarding any service requirements. “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 utilisation and business operation or to maintain and monitor the machine health, the system supports that,” said Martin Krupicka, CEO of Brokk Group. “In fact, more and more of our customers are discovering the value of simply letting Brokk take care of their robots, while they focus on running their business.”
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, then followed by the rest of the world. Brokk Connect will be available for delivery on all new Brokk robots but can also be retrofitted on older models, meaning that Brokk customers can get their entire fleet connected.
