EVERETT, Wash., Aug. 29, 2023 – Fluke Reliability, a wholly owned subsidiary of Fortive Corporation [NYSE: FTV], which empowers reliability and maintenance teams with the hardware, software, and services they need to optimize asset performance, has acquired Azima DLI,a market leader in subscription-based remote condition monitoring and AI-powered vibration analytics software.
Azima DLI's solution enables industrial businesses to increase asset uptime, reduce reactive maintenance, and optimize manufacturing operations while maximizing revenue through accurate, predictive insights.
The Watchman 360 vibration analytics platform detects specific faults, predicts time-to-failure, and recommends corrective action. With the most advanced automated diagnostic engine on the market, their solution has been developed over 30+ years and analyses up to ~93% of machine tests without human intervention. This means the algorithm filters out issues that do not need expert analysis, helping industrial teams prioritize during the current skills shortage.
The acquisition also includes remote condition monitoring services, where a team of Azima DLI experts perform complex vibration analysis. The analysis provides customers with reports on maintenance actions; enhancing operations, reducing downtime/cost, and alleviating teams that are expertise-constrained or operating with reduced headcount.
Today's announcement means Fluke Reliability is further poised to help customers shift from reactive and low-fidelity analysis into advanced and scalable predictive maintenance. This reinforces Fluke Reliability’s strategic commitment to advance connected reliability while continuing to bring innovative solutions to customers, harnessing the transformational potential of artificial intelligence and innovative software as a service (SaaS) technology.
Fluke Reliability President, Ankush Malhotra, commented: "This business will empower our customers with cutting-edge vibration diagnostic capabilities that revolutionize operations, optimize productivity, and enable data-driven decision-making. It is a natural fit for us as we continue to support businesses on their predictive maintenance and connected reliability journey and is a significant step forward to drive our customers' growth and success in the industry."
Joe Van Dyke, VP of Engineering for Azima DLI commented: "We are incredibly proud of this best-in-class vibration analytics and remote condition monitoring platform. As part of Fluke Reliability, we are excited to see more businesses benefit from our solution."
