InduSoft Educational

A partnership with a focus on the exchange of ideas and knowledge!

Click here to view examples of Student Work! 

InduSoft is passionate about education of any kind. We love to learn, and we feel that the best way to do that is to get a hands-on experience. Nothing excites us more than facing the challenges of integrating with new technology and developing exciting solutions. We want to offer this same experience to educational institutions and research groups by allowing them access to licenses and training in our HMI/SCADA platform.

In addition to allowing new users to learn, we also hope to learn from them. We see the relationship between educators and researchers as a partnership where there is a mutual exchange of ideas that could not occur without offering institutions the use of our tools.

We offer licenses for InduSoft Web Studio free of charge for individual students, or a full class attending a course program that uses InduSoft Web Studio as a tool for teaching. We teach educators how to use InduSoft Web Studio, who are then able to teach classes how to develop and maintain HMI/SCADA systems.

We also offer licenses to research teams who wish to use our software to conduct research in the field of SCADA technology and monitoring. We will provide as many licenses as are necessary for the study, and in return, we use the data that the study produces to make a better, more robust software.

Educational institutions who also wish to use InduSoft Web Studio in practical applications on the campus are eligible for licensing privileges. This is ideal for universities, technical schools, or even high schools that want a way to monitor things like energy use, and share the data with faculty and students who are excited by the possibilities an HMI/SCADA system can provide.

InduSoft is currently being used in primary schools in Europe, and Universities worldwide.

Licenses: Licenses for workstations used in laboratories and classrooms.

Training: Training on the latest version of InduSoft Web Studio for professors and coordinators (subject to availability).

Real Applications: Licenses for the development of real world applications for universities and technical schools, which is a unique and innovative way to let students experience the development and use of InduSoft Web Studio in real projects while helping educational institutions increase efficiency.

Students: Temporary licenses for the development of educational projects.

Technical Support: Technical support free of charge for educational institutions.

Máquinas Fix Develops Industrial Solution for the Manufacturing of Ecological Bricks

Awareness is growing globally for the need for more ecologically sustainable methods of production. One company in Brazil, Monteiro Tijolos, produces ecological bricks that have a much smaller carbon footprint and can be used in sustainable architecture instead of resource-heavy traditional fired bricks. Monteiro Tijolos’ ecological bricks are produced with a mixture of gravel and cement, and adhere to the standard NBR10834. Monteiro Tijolos contacted Máquinas Fix to develop an industrial solution for the manufacturing of their ecological bricks.

Surry Chemicals Creates Brilliant Results for the Garment Industry

Organic and synthetic fibers are not naturally a consistent shade of white. Imperfections in the fibers and the result of the handling process means that fibers used in the garment industry must eventually be bleached to produce a brilliant, even shade of white. For large hosiery producers such as Hanes, consistently producing the exact shade of white for a particular line requires a controlled dose of chemicals that will deliver the same result for every batch of socks produced.

Automated Batch Process Analysis for the Food and Beverage Industry

Few industries are regulated as closely as the food and beverage industry. Food safety standards are particularly critical to public health, and there are many regulating bodies that audit and dictate the standards that food manufacturers must meet. Among these regulatory bodies are the FDA (Food and Drug Administration in the United States), and independent organizations such as the GFSI (Global Food Safety Initiative). Manufacturers of food products are often audited by these agencies for food safety, and as a result, recordkeeping for food manufacturers is vital to the process of food manufacturing and packaging.

Saving Lives and Property With Sandbags

During natural disaster situations, sandbags are used to protect people and property. In addition to becoming lifesaving tools during floods and storms, sandbags are also used to provide a steady base for oil, gas, and water pipelines. Sandbags are used in these situations because they provide consistent, flexible weight that enables them to become effective barriers and ballast in a variety of applications. One sandbag manufacturer, Sandbags, enlisted the aid of Quantum Automation in creating a system that would improve the monitoring capabilities and control of their existing sandbag machine.
