Do you always know what tool is at which storage location or how much material still remains on the edgeband roll? Probably not. Then you are in good company.
Our goal with twinio is to provide you with an overview of where the tool or material is located and the condition of it.
For a tool, this is frequently the number of resharpening cycles or parts, running meters or square meters produced. For materials, we concentrate on properties such as remaining length or remaining weight.
twinio is only the web app on your mobile device or PC. In the background, there is a clever system running that can be used to store various information on tapio. Only in this way is it possible to create a tool or material only one time. This information is then available in all apps that are connected to tapio and allow you to access your data. As a result, there is nothing preventing a future connection to a machine. Thanks to tapio, you no longer need to update data multiple times, yet you still remain the master of your information.
How does the data reach the twinio app?
Creating something manually is still possible, but it would be much more efficient if the digital image of a tool or material were available automatically. This is where you benefit from the synergies of our tapio ecosystem. Thanks to LEUCO and other tapio partners, we can already provide most information automatically. You can scan the code on a tool or material, and the information provided by the manufacturer will then already be in your twinio app. If something is not recognized, you can fill the gap yourself and create the tool or material for your company.
For carpenters and furniture manufacturers, there is one location at which all of their physical property such as machines, materials and tools are together – their production.
Many have told us that it is precisely this location which must also be present in the digital world. Only in this way are they able to have an overview of everything and work efficiently with the solutions. Individual solutions for each physical item would make working with digital products difficult. For many, this one location with clear "rules" for the interaction among each item and with data was missing. Only with clear rules is it possible to share data and employ novel solutions. In this regard, who the owner of the data is must always be clear. You surely also believe that the data that your machine generates in your product also belongs to you, don't you? Why should this be otherwise; after all, you purchased the machine or the tool.
