AI, combined with Asystom technologies for capturing vibration and acoustic data, allows machines to alert, but also to diagnose the probable causes of their failure.
Asystom, a leading company in predictive maintenance for Industry 4.0 founded in 2016, announces the official launch of its new solution: AsystomAdvisor.
With this technological innovation, which is a first on the market according to Asystom, the Occitan company now offers a solution that goes beyond predictive maintenance. Indeed, combining sensors and advanced diagnostics of machine health assisted by artificial intelligence, AsystomAdvisor allows its users, not only to be alerted well in advance of a possible machine failure, but also to be able to visualize instantly, regardless of their level of skills, the probable causes of it.
Prediction of a failure and advanced diagnosis of its cause, at a glance
The latest innovative launch designed by Asystom, AsystomSentinel, already made it possible to alert users well in advance of a failure, thanks to the ability of Asystom beacons to monitor not only temperature and triaxial vibration, but also ultrasound (precursor of vibration and therefore damage to the machine).
Scalable and adaptable, AsystomAdvisor now goes even further and breaks the codes of predictive maintenance, constituting an innovation on the market. Based on innovative algorithms as well as multi-sensor tags entirely developed by internal R&D teams, all coupled with artificial intelligence, it is easily integrated (in open architecture) into existing infrastructures and can monitor all components of any industrial system. Universal, turnkey and autonomous, it is fully controllable remotely.
"With AsystomAdvisor, we are taking predictive maintenance to the next level. To put it simply, thanks to AsystomAdvisor, machines can not only alert when they are not working well, but also, thanks to artificial intelligence, provide a clear and readable diagnosis of the probable causes of their failure. We have designed and developed this innovation with our customers' needs in mind. They are the ones who inspired us, and whom we wanted to accompany even further, says Pierre Naccache, Founding President of Asystom. It is also for them that we have thought and designed a solution accessible to all, and intuitive to use: in a few clicks, different levels of information and accuracy of the data can be obtained. This allows each user, regardless of their need and level of knowledge or skills (novice or expert), to be able to quickly find all the elements they will need to prevent a breakdown and optimize their productivity. In a way, we go from the simple detection of symptoms, to the making of a diagnosis on the basis of symptoms ... »
Asystom is currently deploying AsystomAdvisor to all its customers, through a simple update (without requiring any additional tools or installation), and now offers the solution as standard to all its new customers, so that everyone can benefit from this technological innovation at no additional cost.
Unsupervised technology for the industry of the future
AsystomAdvisor is the result of three years of R&D. Its design was made possible thanks to the vibration and acoustic data capture technologies developed by Asystom since its creation in 2016, but also thanks to the continuous interactions of the Occitan company with its customers. Asystom has thus thought of its solution as a scalable technology, constantly improved according to technological advances but also to field demand.
In addition, Asystom differs from other market players by its specific approach: according to the company, the "traditional" approach would consist in seeking a solution for each problem encountered, based on an existing data history; Asystom, on the other hand, aims to offer a universal solution, capable of addressing a large – and constantly increasing – number of problems. And this, without the need to rely on a history of existing data, since Asystom technology generates data itself, thanks to its multi-sensor tags. Thus, by using artificial intelligence, AsystomAdvisor allows the machine to generate the necessary data itself, before Asystom algorithms take over to alert and provide very accurate fault diagnostics, and this, on any type of industrial equipment.
Added value for customers
Boehringer Ingelheim is an international group of German origin that is one of the world leaders in the pharmaceutical industry, acting for the benefit of both human and animal health. With a strong presence in France, with several industrial sites, the company proposed in 2020 to Asystom to integrate its Synapse Acceleration program, designed to face the challenge of e-health and accelerate the process of digitalization of the sector.
After a satisfactory pilot phase, which enabled Boehringer Ingelheim to concretely assess the added value provided by the predictive maintenance technology developed by Asystom, the group wanted to continue this momentum and become the first tester of the new innovation designed by the start-up: the AsystomAdvisor technology. A new stage that took place in total synergy with the internal maintenance teams and the R&D teams of the Occitan company.
Frédéric Dimur, Digital Open Innovation Director at Boehringer Ingelheim, said: " We are particularly proud to have been the first to discover and be able to test this innovative new technology. We are currently finishing the test phase, but we can already say that the relevance of the artificial intelligence developed by Asystom, coupled with the quality of the data produced by their vibration and acoustic detection beacons, has allowed our teams to detect defects and anticipate breakdowns sufficiently upstream to avoid production stoppages. »
