getPlus®: The electronic software delivery ecosystem supporting factories' transition to industry 4.0

Behind the buzz of the industrial internet of things and smart factories is a convenient and cost saving software quietly helping factories move towards industry 4.0

LONDON, April 17 2018 - London based company NOS Microsystems is making the transition to industry 4.0 seamless for industrial automation customers around the world with its electronic software delivery (ESD) solution, getPlus.

The software delivery manager is lightweight at just 200kB (<1MB) on the client side, so small that it does not even require installation, but it packs an incredible punch. It is not only a software manager, but an intelligent ecosystem that fully and easily integrates into clients existing databases—SAP, Oracle, any all others—to establish ESD or enhance the ratio of existing ESD with easy, self-service access to software updates.
getPlus links clients with their customer by perfectly connecting to suppliers current web interfaces. There, it provides an easy to use platform that automizes the updating process for customers. Upon software delivery, it generates a unique targeted sales point based on user data collected by the tiny titan. The end result ensures convenience, reduced support costs, superior life cycle maintenance of products, and revenue recognition right across the supply chain.
"System integration gets complicated when you have hundreds or thousands of different systems of various ages cooperating with each other. But the getPlus ecosystem makes it simple. It knows all user dependencies and entitlements, runs prechecks before download, and bit-by-bit identical ESD is guaranteed even in areas of limited bandwidth. It bypasses tax and customs regulations and the automation provider has a direct platform to inform customers of new devices or updates they may want or need," explained CEO of NOS Microsystems and engineer, Oliver Wessling. "getPlus automizes the automation process. It is the missing link between automation provider and client."
getPlus is a sophisticated tool that performs like no other technology on the market, having been developed by experts in data security and solutions for delivery and transfer management. It already services over one billion downloads annually for clients around the world across several industries, including for Rockwell Automation and Nokia.
"It is the smallest, fastest and most user-friendly transfer manager available and it allows providers to securely distribute any kind of digital content to clients. No maintenance, upgrades or retention are required and getPlus works across all proxies and firewalls," added Mr. Wessling.

Features and benefits of getPlus ecosystem:
• Fully integrated: getPlus does all the work on both client and customer side. Can build entirely new system or upgrade existing environment including advanced customer dependencies and entitlements detection.
• No extra staffing needed: No manpower required from automation provider. Low implementation and maintenance costs with full front-end and back-end support by NOS Microsystems.
• Cuts costs: Eliminate cost of physical delivery of software. Greener and more cost effective. Reduce support costs thanks to increased user convenience and automatic handling of proxies and firewalls.
• SAP, Oracle and cloud compatible: getPlus works seamlessly with all database systems, existing delivery system or cloud service.

• Guaranteed download: Thanks to the smallest and smartest data transfer tool within getPlus, users can install and launch software sooner. Even in areas of low bandwidth.

T.J. Davies' Retention Knobs

T.J. Davies' Retention Knobs

Our retention knobs are manufactured above international standards or to machine builder specifications. Retention knobs are manufactured utilizing AMS-6274/AISI-8620 alloy steel drawn in the United States. Threads are single-pointed on our lathes while manufacturing all other retention knob features to ensure high concentricity. Our process ensures that our threads are balanced (lead in/lead out at 180 degrees.) Each retention knob is carburized (hardened) to 58-62HRC, and case depth is .020-.030. Core hardness 40HRC. Each retention knob is coated utilizing a hot black oxide coating to military specifications. Our retention knobs are 100% covered in black oxide to prevent rust. All retention knob surfaces (not just mating surfaces) have a precision finish of 32 RMA micro or better: ISO grade 6N. Each retention knob is magnetic particle tested and tested at 2.5 times the pulling force of the drawbar. Certifications are maintained for each step in the manufacturing process for traceability.
