Feature New Record
With field engineers servicing sophisticated tire production machines around the globe, tire machine specialist VMI felt the need to secure access to the Programmed Logic Controllers on installations. This leading Dutch tire machine manufacturer realized that a centrally administered password key protection scheme would safeguard intellectual capital and machine investments for the future.
The VMI Group, a division of the TKH Group, is a proven market leader in the professional supply and service of machineries for the tire, rubber, can washing and product handling businesses. The company, now a global organization with over 1000 employees throughout Europe, Asia, North and South America, began its work helping to rebuild the Dutch industry after WWII. Manufacturing expanded as the company entered the rubber and tire industries in the early 1960s. Can machinery soon followed. VMI Care is the last business unit added to the corporation, and, just like all others, it has become the market leader in high capacity cotton pad machinery.
World’s largest industrial automation specialist Rockwell Automation and Wibu-Systems worked together to produce the ideal solution. Deploying the advanced coding technology of Wibu-Systems’ CodeMeter, passwords are no longer saved unencrypted on a local machine, but encrypted in a CmContainer. Wibu-Systems License Central allocates software and hardware keys to secure access for local engineers at remote sites.
Emerging (technology has been on the market for > 2 years)
VMI can fully capitalize their own intellectual property development efforts by minimizing the risk of fraud.
Password storage and management is now supported by a robust storage technology, a strong authentication capability and remote password handling.
