Nederman is developing new products and services that offer increased value for its customers. To do this, the company needed smart connected products that required IoT engineering skills expertise that it did not have in-house. Etteplan (previously TekPartner*) helped create a new control platform for Nedermans industrial filtration systems. This project has enhanced Nedermans suite of products as well as its position in the value chain

"Etteplans (previously TekPartner's*) ownership of the technology meant that they could reuse it in our product development. This not only shortened the development cycle, it removed some of the risk too. That was an important factor in choosing Etteplan. It felt right and they showed that they had the edge.

Nederman Holding AB

Our customers are in the manufacturing industry. They are responsible for keeping their employees safe from the harmful effects of industrial processes. In addition to meeting strict environmental workplace standards, our customers face increasing regulatory requirements regarding the release of emissions into the environment.

This means that their operations need to be as safe, clean and energy-efficient as possible, and these are areas that we want our new products to address.

Connected products open up an opportunity for us to create safe, clean and energy-efficient operations for our customers and therefore expand our position in the value chain. Thats why we are developing smart products and services that offer remote monitoring for customers. Until recently, our electronic controls were made just for the running of the product a simple platform we got from another third-party supplier. There were no interfaces allowing connectivity through IoT. To upgrade the control platform for the filters, we needed a team with IoT engineering skills, which we did not have in-house.

Etteplan helped us build a new platform to control industrial filtration systems applicable to customers in many different industries, e.g. wood, foundries and metal fabrication. The solution includes a versatile energy management system that allows the air extraction process to run in a more energy-efficient way.

Etteplan was recommended to us because they had done a similar solution for another company. The great thing about Etteplans solution is that they own it. With a lot of other development houses, its usually the customer who owns the IP. But Etteplans ownership of the technology meant that they could reuse it in our product development. This not only shortened the development cycle, it removed some of the risk too. That was an important factor in choosing Etteplan. It felt right and they showed that they had the edge.
