WOBURN, Mass. – July 12, 2016 – Azima DLI, the premier provider of predictive maintenance (PdM) solutions, today announced it will deliver global vibration condition monitoring services to SETECH’s customers as part of a global reliability partnership.

Tennessee-based SETECH’s new PdM business unit will use Azima DLI’s tools, expert diagnostic capabilities, and cloud infrastructure to deliver world-class vibration monitoring services on a global scale. The vibration services will complement SETECH’s oil, infrared thermography, and ultrasound services, making for a comprehensive reliability offering for its customers.

“Our choice for close collaboration with Azima DLI stems from our common values and beliefs in reliability,” said Steve Strayer, vice president of engineering and reliability for SETECH. “Along with SETECH’s other value-added solutions and services, this new initiative will challenge the status quo of how companies do business and produce valuable efficiency gains in production.”

Through this relationship, SETECH will provide its customers the advantage of Azima DLI’s WATCHMAN™ Reliability Services. SETECH’s services teams will deploy TRIO™ data collectors to acquire vibration data from machinery and will use Azima DLI’s cloud infrastructure to securely transmit the data to Azima DLI’s diagnostic team for analysis with ExpertALERT™, Azima DLI’s condition assessment software. Comprehensive machinery health reports detailing faults and recommended repair actions will be delivered to SETECH’s customers, in tandem with SETECH’s other PdM offerings.

“We are delighted to support SETECH in this strategic initiative,” said Burt Hurlock, CEO of Azima DLI. “We welcome the opportunity to work with professional organizations like SETECH that share both our high standards for service and responsiveness, as well as our commitment to delivering machine health information for insightful decision making to lower maintenance costs and improve plant reliability.”
