GAS - Grinding as a Service


Off you go with GAS


  • “Grinding as a Service” means a grinding machine provided by WEMA VOGTLAND, remote monitored with full maintenance services and guaranteed performance.
  • The machine is rented (on a monthly or yearly basis), instead of purchased, maintained and updated by the customer. This option of renting a machine instead of investing in buying one can often be the most suitable choice for end users
  • New technologies such as sensor, IoT, remote monitoring, cloud storage,  and analytics are considered to be the TRIGGERS to developing the “Grinding as a Service” business.

Why Grinding as a Service → GAS

Advantages and benefits

  • Profitability (from CapEx to OpEx, to adapt more easily to fluctuations in demand, without maintenance costs).
  • The customer can reduce or even shut down his own maintenance
  • The starting cost for GAS per machine is comparable to a single salary of a medium-high employee
  • Efficiencies (through OEE -OVERALL EQUIPMENT EFFECTIVENESS- developments, in energy production or consumption)
  • Agility (less problems and concerns, flexibility, outsourcing reductions) → choice of production offer
  • The small customer takes advantage of the easy cost even to start up.
  • The big customer benefits from the flexibility of this type of activity (production peaks / uncertain investments)
