Future-oriented service: symex Visual Remote Service

symex Visual Remote Service for mixing and homogenizing systems for the pharmaceutical and cosmetics industry

With the introduction of symex Visual Remote Service, which is based on the ADTANCE support solution, symex sets up its own service level once again. By using the latest IT technology, the manufacturer from Bremerhaven extends its established and fast service for mixing and homogenizing plants by a visual supported remote service.

Independent of location and with maximum transparency, symex thus guarantees reliable remote maintenance and fast immediate support. The service staff from Bremerhaven supports local service technicians and programmers via video transmission during installation. The service technician on site wears a user-friendly and easy-to-wear headset and has his hands free for the installation. This has significantly reduced the service and downtimes of the mixing and homogenizing plants. Especially in times of worldwide travel restrictions, the use of visual online support has proven its worth and helped to continue providing high service quality.

Further expansion of the solution

At the ACHEMA 2022, a leading International trade show for the Process Industry, symex presented the next level of ADTANCE Remote Service. Together with the latest generation of industrial wearables, the RealWear Navigator 500, and the latest software generation of the ADTANCE support solution. Here, the focus is clearly on user-friendliness and reduced language barriers due to automated translation functionalities.
"The combination of the latest hardware and software makes symex Visual Remote Service an indispensable tool for us and our customers," says Thorsten Panknin, Head of Service & After Sales, "the interaction of the highly efficient real-time communication, as well as the translation option available in 147 languages, reduces the service effort for all sides."
