All HOMAG machines sold after LIGNA are already ready to be connected to tapio.

Existing HOMAG machines as well as non-HOMAG machines must be rechecked in advance before they can go online. We will be happy to help you in this process.

You can use tapio on all smart devices such as smartphones, tablets, smartwatches and PCs.

As soon as your machine is connected to tapio, you can use the following four products: serviceboard, machineboard, mesboard and datasave.

HOMAG tapio products like MachineBoard are available free of charge with the purchase of the machine. You can buy other products like ServiceBoard and DataSave either as part of a service package or on their own. You can buy MESBoard in combination with an MES system from HOMAG.

The same requirements apply in order to connect a machine with tapio as with TeleService. All you need is an Internet connection.
