The VOLLMER IoT Starter Package

The VOLLMER IoT Starter Package makes your introduction to the world of digital production extremely easy. It contains the IoT Gateway as a necessary hardware component, the preconfigured VOLLMER Dashboard and the Node-RED system. This prepares your machine to be used with current and future digital VOLLMER solutions.

Take the first step towards digitalisation and make the IoT Starter Package an integral part of your new machine. For existing machines, you certainly have the option to retrofit the IoT Gateway and its associated digital services.

  • 12 month trial package
  • IoT Gateway (Hardware for machine interface)
  • Software Licenses, certificates and updates


The VOLLMER Dashboard for Visualisation of machine data

Live access to detailled information about machine status

  • Any time, any mobile device - worldwide
  • Keep an eye on machine data and utilisation
  • Achieve a new level of transparency on the shop floor

Vollmer Dashboard

Always informed: All the relevant machine parameters at a glance and under your control.


  • Overview of machine status
  • Alerts and error warnings
  • Further performance related KPI such as feed rate, coolant temperature, spindle speed

Compatibility on all levels

Standardised interfaces and protocols such as OPC UA or MTConnect enable fast and simple data exchange between our machines and your applications.

Furthermore, you can integrate VOLLMER machine data in pre-existing dashboards or further third party applications. You can continue working in your established IoT environment.

VOLLMER is part of the UMATI initiative, as lead by the German manufacturing association VDW, helping the development of a universal interface for machine tools based on the platform-independent standard OPC UA.

Node-RED: Out-Of-The-Box Logic Programming

Node-RED is a graphic programming tool for wiring together hardware, devices, open developer interfaces (APIs) and online services. The browser-based editor relies on a library of graphic logic blocks with which you can depict complex work flows easily and without hard coding. In short: Programming without extensive coding knowledge.

Deploy the programming tool Node-RED and define the work flows in your IOT surroundings with the simple building block system.

  • Define communication flows and link these to machine parameters. Receive automated notifications on different end devices, analyse standardised data. Use our preconfigured processes or customise your own work flows.
  • Create yourself an alarm notification with only few clicks and get updates straight from the machine tool to your email inbox or dashboard.
  • Create your own evaluations and analyses in your familiar environment. Node-RED supports the export of data to databases or external memories and thus enables you to work in familiar programs such as Excel.
