Accelerating and Transforming Manufacturing

Steamchain harnesses machine performance data to reimagine how manufacturers and end-users produce, invest and grow. Our Machine-as-a-Service solutions not only improve machine productivity and performance, but allow businesses to accelerate toward desired outcomes.


The Steamchain (Secure Transaction Engine for Automated Machinery) platform allows real-time equipment data to be used as the foundation for secure agreements and transactions between OEMs and end-users. From contracts and financing to warranties, service and more, Steamchain creates more post-sale revenue for OEMs and simplifies machine investments for end-user businesses. The result? More opportunities for both to collaborate and innovate.
