Bühler Group recently live tweeted for 48 hours straight from its IoT edge gateway, which was installed on an in-process Aeroglide dryer. The tweets highlighted the company’s AeroPro Moisture Control (MC) and AeroPro Process Monitoring (PM) Internet of Thing (IoT) products.

Bühler tweeted diagnostics every 10 minutes to demonstrate the flexibility, possibilities and transparency gained from IoT data. The company also answered questions and interacted with users.

“Connected machines leveraging IoT sensors, cloud-managed big data and analytics are disrupting the norm in the drying machinery sector,” said Doug Beloskur, Bühler Aeroglide product manager for automation and IoT. “This technology is paving the way for advanced machine intelligence and machine/process AI formation.”
