KHD ProMax® Suite

Thanks to advances in connectivity and smart sensors, cement plants collect vast amounts of data every day. The challenge is how to utilize this digital datasphere to provide tangible improvement at machine, plant, and corporate level. KHD ProMax® is the solution to that challenge, empowering best‑in‑class performance, every day, every shift.

What is KHD ProMax®?

Integrate your existing data and systems with our Cloud‑based suite of digital optimization solutions, powered by state‑of‑the‑art digital twin and machine learning technologies.

KHD ProMax is a suite of Cloud‑based digital solutions that connects to and delivers real‑world optimization of your cement plant equipment and processes. But exactly what it does that mean? Well that is up to you. Because KHD ProMax is customizable and grows with your needs. We are also continuously developing new functionalities in response to client requests. It begins, however, with a secure connection from your plant to the Cloud via KHD ProMax Edge.

What is KHD ProMax®?

It begins with your data

Unlocking the value of your plant and process data is what KHD ProMax is all about. But first we have 
to collect that data, which is the job of our KHD ProMax Edge hardware. Data are collected from both 
KHD and third-party equipment and systems, and in multiple formats. The data are then homogenized 
into a single consistent structure, ready for the advanced data analytics used by our KHD ProMax application suite.

What is KHD ProMax®?

Security and data sovereignity

Your data are uploaded to the KHD ProMax Cloud via an end‑to‑end encrypted link and hosted on ISO27001:2013 certified data centers for the highest security standards. A single‑tenant architecture provides each client its own private application stack, completely secure and isolated from the data and applications of other clients. Your data remain your property: we will never share your data with third parties and will access your data only to the extent allowed under your KHD ProMax subscription agreement.

What is KHD ProMax®?

Flexible, smart solutions

Our KHD ProMax suite of cloud-based applications deliver unparalleled insight into and improvement of your operations. Based on a comprehensive and customizable digital twin of your cement plant(s), the KHD ProMax suite allows you to easily navigate through your plant(s) data, evaluate KPIs and compare production goals with current plant performance, improve maintenance planning and trigger workflows, order spare parts, browse manuals and data sheets, and access virtual tutorials. The net result?

  • More efficient maintenance workflows through predictive analytics and interconnecting process 
 chains, reducing plant operating costs.
  • Lower downtime thanks to its prescriptive maintenance solutions and built-in anomaly detection.
  • Increased employee productivity by collection all productive and equipment data in a single point of
 reference with a unified and intuitive user interface

The basic subscription comprises a range of standard options. Higher subscription tiers offers a choice of additional solutions with advanced functionalities and remote services.

Non-KHD supply documents must be provided by client.
3D models are only available for KHD equipment.
"KHD supply" can mean either a machine designed or supplied by KHD. 
Features, functionality
and pricing always apply on a per process department level, i.e. pyroprocessing department.

The Real-Time Optimizer

Our Real-Time Optimizer (RTO) for kilns and grinding plants is part of the KHD ProMax suite and combines the latest self-adaptive machine learning technologies with our extensive process engineering and experience.

Real-Time Optimizer

AI-based process optimization

Available as part of your KHD ProMax Suite subscription or as a standalone installation, KHD ProMax RTO first stabilizes and then optimizes your process to given optimization targets. The result is a significant improvement in KPIs. KHD ProMax RTO is easy to set-up and integrate into existing operations using existing historical data to train the non-linear composable AI models and constraints – which provide higher accuracy and stability. The models remain continuously updated through machine learning, ensuring your process remains as productive as possible, despite any change in conditions.
