CRL 1-hr: Nov 7 Introduction to Uptime Elements Reliability Framework and Asset Management System

– Azima DLI, the leader and premier provider of predictive maintenance (PdM) solutions, today announced that Cascade Machinery Vibration Services has joined Azima DLI’s expanding network of Authorized PdM Service Agents who sell and support Azima DLI products and services.

“We are delighted to have Cascade on board as a Domestic Distributor and Authorized Service Agent,” said Burt Hurlock, CEO of Azima DLI. “We welcome the opportunity to work with professional organizations like Cascade that share both our high standards for service and responsiveness as well as our commitment to reducing risk and cost, and improving safety and efficiency.”

Under the agreement, Azima DLI’s solutions will be available through Cascade’s product distribution network in Texas and the Gulf Coast, with expansion to Cascade’s other U.S. markets expected to follow. Cascade’s highly skilled engineers will also be available for local support to Azima DLI’s customers, including vibration data collection, balancing, and on-site troubleshooting.

Cascade will add Azima DLI’s line of TRIO™ portable vibration analyzers, WATCHMAN Online Systems™, and the ALERT™ family of vibration diagnostic software to its product offerings.

“Cascade is thrilled to represent Azima DLI in the PdM marketplace,” said Troy Broussard, CEO of Cascade. “We are already the master distributor for Easy-Laser® alignment systems, so our team can now offer a more comprehensive, total machinery solution to our customers by combining both laser alignment and vibration offerings.”

Cascade is also authorized to sell Azima DLI’s route-based, remote condition-based vibration analysis under WATCHMAN™ Services, which is backed by Azima DLI’s team of 40+ expert analysts. As an Authorized PdM Service Agent, Cascade will manage the customer relationships and data collection, and Azima DLI will perform remote vibration analysis and deliver comprehensive reports via the WATCHMAN Reliability Portal™

“Cascade has primarily focused its vibration efforts on troubleshooting and solving seemingly unsolvable issues on our customers’ most critical machines,” said Broussard. “With Azima DLI, we can quickly expand the number of customers to whom we can offer routine vibration services on the balance of plant. It really is a win-win situation for us and our customers.”

Cascade cites Azima DLI’s unmatched technology, experienced analysis team, and infrastructure as the driving factor in deciding to join. The ability to easily customize a solution for in-house, outsourced, or hybrid programs makes Azima DLI’s offering extremely attractive.

“Regardless of whether it’s an in-house, outsourced, or mixed program, everything seamlessly integrates, from data collection with the TRIO or WATCHMAN Online Systems, to automated vibration analysis with ExpertALERT™, to accessing machine health information and reports via the web-based WATCHMAN Portal,” said Broussard. “It provides a complete solution that can be deployed at one plant or across a fleet of plants, in whatever way the customer wants to operate it.”

Cascade is the fourth company to sign on as an Authorized PdM Service Agent. The Agent program is quickly expanding with Agents already located in Kentucky, Tennessee, and Canada. To learn more about becoming an Azima DLI Authorized PdM Service Agent, send an email to
