To enable us to provide this more effectively, we offer the MBO Remote Access Service. All that is required to utilise this service is internet access. Once the RAS has been activated through a switch in the electrical cabinet, our service technicians will be able to establish a secure connection directly to your machine. This will allow our technicians to quickly resolve errors with your operator’s help, leading directly to lower service costs and shorter unintended downtimes.
