Robot & Device Monitoring Platform

Alerts & downtime reports

Tend monitors your factory robots and equipment, sending alerts when maintenance is needed or an alarm is triggered, with the ability to remotely diagnose the cause of problems.

Receive weekly health reports that measure servo stress over time. As performance degrades, anomolies will be detected and you'll be notified before a catastrophic failure occurs.

Machine Learning

Predict robot failures

Tend creates a behavioral model for each axis in the robot or other factory equipment that is used to identify problems over extended periods of time.

Rather than having a servo failure bring the entire production line down, Tend continuously monitors and compares the performance of each axis to the historic profile to identify early signs of mechanical failure.

Secure Remote Access

See more than just the robot

Monitor an HMI from a mobile device or connect directly to a PLC to investigate a problem as if you were in the factory.

Our Cell.Mate edge device provides a secure channel for communication without exposing ports to the internet, preventing any unwanted access.

Secure Edge Analytics

Easy setup, no sensors required

The Tend Cell.Mate™ communicates with your robot in minutes, without programming. Our machine-learning software then self-teaches a baseline of normal robot operation and begins monitoring.

Tend provides exactly what you need to stay on top of your production – even if you’re nowhere near the production line.

Prevent unexpected downtime.
Reduce time to recover from failure.
No programming. No sensors. No nonsense.

At Tend, we believe in keeping things simple. From our low monthly fee to our quick setup process,
our goal is to help our customers realize value right away.

Do you live on the edge? For Industrial IoT, It’s Better

Edge computing is rapidly becoming the most critical component of industrial IoT, replacing pure cloud-based systems in large manufacturing environments.  Over 72% of American manufacturers are already investing in Edge computing solutions, according to Futurum Research: The reasons shouldn’t surprise you. We all started hearing about the Internet of Things (IoT) early in the last […]

Great Minds Think Alike: Shouldn’t Robots?

A few months ago, The International Federation of Robotics announced that “Global industrial robot sales doubled over the past five years.”  While this is no real surprise to most of us, what is surprising is that none of them speak the same language. For the most part, the industrial robot industry is still stuck in […]
