Many small and medium-sized companies face the same productivity issues caused by unpredictable downtimes or unused machine times. These seconds, minutes or sometimes even hours can add up to an enormous amount of wasted time. Fortunately, time is one of the factors that can be better managed at a company thanks to the fourth industrial revolution.
SRL Advantage’s goal is to help SMEs grow and perform better by finding their weaknesses and improve their key performance parameters. With Haris Digital on their side, the consulting company is now able to detect the issues and help solving the production problems.

Small tool, great opportunities
Vera and János Suri met Haris Digital’s solution during a meeting with one of their partners. “We were amazed how unique the solution was and we saw a lot of potentials in it. Since we mainly work with small and medium-sized companies where the easy-to-install automation options are very valuable, seeing the sensor made us want to find out more. – tells Vera Suri about her first impressions of Haris’ product. – With this compact and portable solution, we can offer a better understanding of the production and processes of the factory to our clients. During a consultation, we can collect real-time data about the machines and provide an overview of the potential improvements.” – she says about Haris Digital’s sensor and the software behind it.
With Haris’ smart sensor and kit, numerous older and traditional machining tools can be integrated into the data collection. Based on the gathered information, the process optimization can begin, which leads to better results. The app gives the opportunity to any company to collect real-time data and improve its processes by perfecting production parameters: “This application doesn’t need any special devices, only the sensor and a smartphone or a tablet.” – adds Suri Vera.
This wireless solution opens a wide range of possibilities: “Our clients who connected the sensor to machining tools and nailer cranes reported development in different processes. The only challenge is to find the perfect measuring spot for the sensor, where we can filter out the movements of the machine from its vibration. After installing the sensor on the machine and finishing the calibration, the collected data can immediately be used for analysis.”
