How Axians & Ultimo make maintenance smarter and more efficient
Axians support their customers with asset management by processing real-time data from machines using machine learning. To do so, Axians has developed MAESTRO, an IoT platform developed on Microsoft Azure that enables the integrations between operational, strategic and tactical data flows. This way, sensors and machines can be managed and checked remotely, alarms and notifications can potentially be generated on the basis of machine learning, and a dashboard will be available to make all of this clear for the user.
With MAESTRO it is possible to enrich data from Ultimo with real-time operational data. This creates an integral image of the available data from your organisation, which allows you to improve efficiency.
With predictive maintenance you can carry out smart maintenance by looking ahead. This takes a lot of work off your hands and increases the uptimes of your machines. With MAESTRO manufacturers of machines and equipment can decide to no longer charge the customer for the purchase of the machine but on the basis of use instead.
Ultimo and Axians join forces to realize Smart Asset Management
Make your asset management smarter by combining Ultimo and Axians Maestro. The smart algorithms will prepare you for any upcoming maintenance, which is always based on facts and real-time data. This allows you to work more efficiently and make the necessary preparations in time, ensuring that parts or other resources are available when needed.
Axians about the partnership with Ultimo
Raymond Jansen, Sales & Operational Manager at Axians: “With the integration with Ultimo, our customer can fully set up end-to-end asset management and increase the uptime of the machinery with automated and real-time links between machines and Ultimo. Depending on the threshold values, alarms are sent to Ultimo in real time or to the operator with push notifications or text messages. The collaboration with Ultimo came about very organically; we complement each other perfectly on the customer’s shop floor. And the benefits show it: MAESTRO for the real-time data from machines and Ultimo for perfectly processing them in the EAM.”
Smarter asset maintenance in factories
Managing and maintaining assets is crucial for all organisations that are active in the manufacturing industry. Outside influences, such as rising energy costs and the COVID-19 pandemic, have increased the pressure to manufacture faster, cheaper but also more sustainable products, while at the same time maintaining the quality. One way of making the maintenance of your assets smarter is by monitoring the condition of assets and planning maintenance accordingly.
