SKF has launched a new fully automated condition-monitoring system, SKF Axios, in collaboration with Amazon Web Services.
The new system offers a solution that reinvents the fields of industrial machine reliability and predictive maintenance.
SKF Axios will allow manufacturers to monitor more equipment in their facilities through simple and affordable wireless technology.
The system is comprised of sensors, gateways and a machine learning system that is easy to install. The fast installation means the technology is operational within minutes.
SKF Axios detects anomalies and sends push notifications, allowing for quick action to ensure maximum machine productivity. This ensures that users never miss a problem and can react proactively ahead of time.
“With SKF Axios, we are able to provide a larger portion of the industrial market with actionable insights leading to improved decision making and more efficient maintenance planning and scheduling,” SKF president of industrial region Americas John Schmidt said.
SKF Axios will complement the company’s current portfolio of condition monitoring products.
“Through leveraging these insights and SKF’s knowledge of rotating equipment, customers can improve machine performance and overall reliability of their operations,” Schmidt said.
Vice president of AI services at Amazon Web Services (AWS) Vasi Philomin praised SKF Axios for delivering an opportunity for industrial customers to benefit from data-driver technologies.
“SKF Axios represents a tremendous opportunity for industrial customers of all sizes to benefit from scalable, data-driven, machine-learning technologies offered by AWS,” Philomin said.
“These solutions enable industrial customers to make better decisions faster, increasing operational efficiency, and reducing the costs associated with unplanned equipment downtime.”
SKF and AWS remain committed to offering their customers high levels of expertise and innovation when it comes to their products.
SKF Axios will be exhibited in the AWS booth at Hannover Messe 2022.
Inventory for SKF Axios is expected to be available globally in late 2022. More information can be found here.
