Sulzer Technical Review

 
 

Digital insights


Dear reader  

Speeding up processes is the key to success and industrial agility. That is why most of the industries are in the midst of digital transformation. For all customers using pumps in their processes, Sulzer has developed a smart tool to make use of their operational pump data. The BLUE BOX™ software can process data from all pump manufacturers, not only Sulzer pumps. The main principle of the BLUE BOX tool is easy to explain: acquire data, analyze data, act on digital insights. We also like to share our own experiences with digital transformation in our factories. Read how we gained speed and increased our productivity remarkably for our injection-molding machines around the globe. The Sulzer White Paper sheds light on digital simulations using finite element analysis (FEA).

Turning pump data into dollars


The BLUE BOX™ software can analyze data from any pump or pipeline equipment — not only Sulzer-made pumps. BLUE BOX combines the available data with Sulzer’s pump expertise and presents valuable insights. More
