Factry is a Belgian software company that brings the power of open software to the world of manufacturing. It develops tools to help its customers improve their operations. Together with its transparent approach, this guarantees modern and performant solutions without artificial limits.

Bringing open source to Industrial IoT

Factry helps its customers gain insights into their operations by bringing the power of open source software to the world of industrial IoT. To make this possible, Factry built Factry Historian, a solution which collects process data from industrial systems and stores it in InfluxDB.

A&S Energie

One of Factry's customers is A&S Energie, a Belgian biomass plant that supplies electricity to 55,000 households by burning 180,000 metric tons of non-recyclable wood per year—that’s 22 tons per hour. At its maximum output, the plant generates 26 megawatts of power. Factry replaced A&S Energie’s existing solution with Factry Historian, powered by open source InfluxDB. This allowed A&S Energie to increase use of the process data to make their staff more efficient as well as find failures faster.

Puratos

Puratos is a multinational organization, specialized in developing ingredients for the patisserie and chocolate industry. It has over 65 sites worldwide. Factry enables Puratos to centrally manage and easily access data from any location or manufacturing plant.

Vleemo

VLEEMO NV is a collaboration between the Flemish energy companies Aspiravi NV (50%) and Polders Investeringsfonds NV (50%). These companies specialize in renewable energy. VLEEMO built and operates 33 wind turbines on the Right Bank of the Port of Antwerp, with more turbines under construction.

Factry helps VLEEMO to optimize electricity output from wind turbines by enabling optimal adaptation to varying environmental conditions.
