In the article of Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Technology and Advanced Materials IFAM you can read how the use of our Smart Service Software simplifies and optimizes the processes in adhesive technology. In use are mobile devices as well as modern smartglasses. In combination with our Smart Service Software, supporting instructions and important data are provided in real-time.

At the Hannover Messe we are presenting, together with SALT AND PEPPER, how existing plants can be networked intelligently, in order to show mechanical and process data inside VIOS. A connection to the plant is established with the Beat Monitoring System (BMS) of SALT AND PEPPER. With the BMS and VIOS, mechanical and process data can be captured fully automatically and in real time. Inside VIOS, the Expert gets an insight in the data of the machine. This way you can increase your production efficiency and improve processes.
Visit us in Hall 11, Stand C15 and experience Industry 4.0 with the BMS and VIOS.
Is Augmented Reality (AR) the future of industrial maintenance? In March at the CeBIT in Hanover we presented possibilities for using AR in service and maintenance processes. The visitors could experience an industry-related scenario, supported by the Microsoft HoloLens glasses and VIOS AR.
Our demo was about the process of examining an aviation component for material deficiencies.
The component could be examined by using an Ultrasonic Measurement Device. The procedure is called Non-destructive testing (NDT) – evaluating the properties of a material or component without causing damage. Usually a technician has to look at the monitor of the device, which the Measurement Device is connected to, in order to see results. With the HoloLens there is no need to do this, which allows for more efficient work. Within the demo the technician can see suspected damage areas as well as the scan results. This way he is guided through the inspection process. Continue reading “VIOS AR: The future of industrial maintenance?”
At the CeBIT in Hannover visitors could not only try our remote maintenance solution VIOS, but for the first time also VIOS Augmented Reality (AR) on the Microsoft HoloLens.
We are pleased about the great interest in our solutions and the many interesting conversations.
We were also very happy to welcome prominent guests: Among others were the Minister President of Lower Saxony, Stephan Weil, and the Mayor of Osnabrück, Wolfgang Griesert, at our booth and tried our AR solution on the HoloLens.
You can find interesting facts about VIOS AR at the CeBIT and about the future of industrial maintenance here.
Bitnamic develops mobile Smart Services for Industry 4.0, to improve and cheapenclassic service processes.
At CeBIT 2017 in Hannover we present our remote service solution VIOS, that allows companies to make expert knowledge available wordwide without delay.
But Bitnamic thinks one step further! At our booth we are simulating possible scenarios for the future of industrial maintenance by using augmented reality. Experience the next step of digital service processes with the Microsoft HoloLens AR-Glasses.
Visit us at the CeBIT in Hall 6, Booth A18 and experience VIOS and VIOS AR live.
On Saturday, January the 14th, Bitnamic co-hosts a Hackathon for Augmented, Mixed and Virtual Reality.
Together with Osnabrück’s startups Adaptvis, Forestage Technologies and Virtual Spice, we want to show how much potential there is in the Osnabrück and Weser-Ems region.
Participants and guests will get an introduction to those new technologies. They will work together closely with well-known companies like FRIMO, Testia, Anlagenbau Habeck, GiS and Salt&Pepper to create exciting proof of concepts.
In Industry 4.0, companies are always facing new challengens and they always have to (re)consider bussines opportunities in a clever way. With Augmented, Mixed and Virtual Reality, there are lots of exciting scenarios and use cases. The hackathon offers a unique way to connect those companies with motivated developers and minds to work closely on those use cases and scenarios together. All results will be published on GitHub!
We, the team of Bitnamic, are looking forward to this event to have a nice, friendly, collaborative and efficient day.
In the current issue of the magazine i-Quadrat for intelligent maintenance, we present a scenario to make remote maintenance smarter and more efficient. An example created by Bitnamic and GiS (Gesellschaft für integrierte Systemplanung) shows the advantages of combining enterprise asset management and remote maintenance systems for service and maintenance.
Using modern remote maintenance solution VIOS in combination with solutions like enterprise asset management systems or additional systems like SCADA, SAP or BDE offers a comprehensive view of the problem. Experts get audiovisual and data based state descriptions, and technicians on site get precise instructions. A positive side effect comes from the documentation of the executed tasks. Using VIOS allows records, artefacts, images and actual data to be added to the documentation history. This way the data can be accessed later and records can be used as manuals. This is an important aspect for machine manufacturers, for example while handing over or in after sales service in remote regions. Using the knowledge gained, documented as cause of error analysis in the knowledge database, machines and service processes can be optimized continuously. Guarantee cases can be solved remotely. The distribution and usage of third-party provider knowledge is another advantage.
You can find additional information on combining VIOS with EAT systems as well on the consequent advantages in the i-Quadrat article online (link below) or in the print issue 02/2016.
Industry 4.0 intelligently connects people, machines and industrial processes by using modern communication and information technology. It affects many different areas like production, logistics or maintenance. Industry 4.0 is also a main topic of the digital agenda of the government of Germany. Under leadership of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) the Plattform Industrie 4.0 shapes the structural change together with businesses, unions and sciences. The Platform also supports businesses with an online map, which shows where Industry 4.0 is already implemented today, by means of about 250 examples.
For Bitnamic, Industry 4.0 is a very important topic. VIOS is a modern communication technology and connects people and machines in various service and maintenance processes. This is why we are very happy about VIOS being accepted as a practical example in the Industry 4.0 map.
The acceptance emphasises the meaning of VIOS as an Industry 4.0 solution in practical use, and shows why it is worth to invest in digitisation. With VIOS Bitnamic is supporting companies in optimising and modernising maintenance and service so they can avoid downtimes and reduce travel costs.

The world’s leading trade fair for industrial technology, the Hannover Messe, takes place in Hannover on April 25 – 29, 2016. Bitnamic is presenting VIOS this year as part of the „Young Tech Enterprises“ showcase. At our Stand in Hall 3 you can try out VIOS and find out more about VIOS and Bitnamic. We look forward to your visit! If you want to schedule a meeting or want to get a free ticket you can reach us at email@example.com or +49 541 3470090-0.
