Benz has introduced a new digital application named i.com available for smartphones and tablets. The application scans, saves, and processes tool data and uses it to provide important information about the product's current condition. Benz i.com is located on a chip, which, depending on the application, is powered by an integrated generator or a battery, and saves the data where it is then transferred to the app via NFC and bluetooth, either in real time or after specific events. Using the Benz cloud solution, the user not only has access to the data they have scanned themselves, but to all of the product data saved in the cloud. Working with a receiver module, the transparent tool monitoring system communicates directly with the machine control system and can trigger automatic lubrication or the emergency stop function, if there is an emergency.
