The Context

Tosibox provides secure remote access solutions to facilities that are looking to implement, upgrade or improve their cyber-security systems. 

In this instance, Digital Manufacturing Ireland (DMI) faced the challenge of developing a cutting-edge digital manufacturing factory. As a greenfield project, the goal was to create a state-of-the-art showcase of digital manufacturing technologies, highlighting what is possible with the latest advancements. 

The Tosibox Hub provided DMI with a robust, secure, and scalable control system to demonstrate innovative manufacturing processes and serve as a benchmark for the industry. 

This system also had to ensure cybersecurity-safe access for remote staff, allowing them to connect securely and efficiently – making the Tosibox Hub the ideal solution. 

The challenge was to design and implement a solution that would allow for the seamless integration of advanced technologies while ensuring operational efficiency and providing a scalable platform for future technological demonstrations. 

The Response

To address these challenges, BONNER implemented an advanced MES-based control system that utilised the Tosibox Hub System. 

The Tosibox Hub provided a secure and scalable infrastructure essential for the project. The implementation involved deploying multiple Tosibox Locks and connecting various equipment through the Tosibox Hub, creating a unified and secure network.

The Tosibox Hub facilitated seamless remote access and control, significantly enhancing operational efficiency and security. BONNER’s expertise in installing and configuring the system ensured a smooth implementation tailored to DMI’s specific needs. 

This setup allowed DMI to effectively showcase advanced digital manufacturing technologies, demonstrating their potential to industry stakeholders. 

The Results

Benefits of the Tosibox Hub include: 


  • Enhanced network security and reliability, ensuring uninterrupted demonstration of technologies. 
  • Scalable infrastructure to support the integration of future advanced manufacturing technologies. 
  • Improved control and monitoring of demonstration processes, facilitating better decision-making. 
  • Time and cost savings through efficient management and maintenance of the control system. 
  • During the control system’s development and testing phases, Tosibox’s secure remote connection was used to coordinate with various teams and machine builders, ensuring efficient integration and comprehensive testing.
