AI, combined with Asystom's vibration and acoustic data capture technologies, allows machines to alert, but also to diagnose the probable causes of their failure.
Asystom, a leading predictive maintenance company for Industry 4.0 founded in 2016, announces the official launch of its new solution: AsystomAdvisor.
With this technological innovation, which Asystom believes is a first on the market, the Occitan company is now offering a solution that goes beyond predictive maintenance alone. Indeed, combining sensors and advanced diagnosis 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 instantly visualize, whatever their level of expertise, the probable causes of the failure.
Prediction of a failure and advanced diagnosis of its cause, at a glance
Asystom's latest innovative launch, AsystomSentinel, has already alerted 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 (a precursor of vibration and therefore of machine damage).
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 on multi-sensor beacons entirely developed by internal R&D teams, coupled with artificial intelligence, it can be easily integrated (in open architecture) into existing infrastructures and can monitor all components of any industrial system. Universal, turnkey and autonomous, it can be fully controlled 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 properly, but also, thanks to artificial intelligence, provide a clear and readable diagnosis of the probable causes of their failure. We 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, President and Founder of Asystom. CIt is also for them that we thought and designed a solution accessible to all, and of intuitive use: in a few clicks, different levels of information and data accuracy can be obtained. This allows each user, whatever his needs and his level of knowledge or skills (novice or expert), to quickly find all the elements he will need to prevent a breakdown and optimize his productivity. In a way, we go from simply detecting symptoms to making a diagnosis based on the symptoms... "
Asystom is currently deploying AsystomAdvisor to all its customers through a simple upgrade (no additional tools or installation required), and is now offering the solution as standard to all its new customers, so that everyone can benefit from this technological innovation at no extra 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 designed its solution as an evolving technology, constantly improved according to technological advances but also to the field demand.
Moreover, Asystom distinguishes itself from other market players by its specific approach: according to the company, the "traditional" approach would consist in looking for 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 growing - number of problems. And this, without the need to rely on an existing data history, since Asystom's technology itself generates data, thanks to its multi-sensor tags. Thus, using artificial intelligence, AsystomAdvisor allows the machine to generate the necessary data itself, before Asystom's algorithms take over to alert and provide highly accurate failure diagnostics on any type of industrial equipment.
Added value for customers
Boehringer Ingelheim is an international group of German origin and one of the world leaders in the pharmaceutical industry, acting for the benefit of both human and animal health. Strongly established 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 digitization process of the sector.
After a satisfactory pilot phase, which allowed Boehringer Ingelheim to concretely evaluate the added value brought by the predictive maintenance technology developed by Asystom, the group wished to continue on this path and become the first tester of the new innovation designed by the start-up: the AsystomAdvisor technology. This new step took place in total synergy with the internal maintenance and 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 test this new innovative 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 vibratory and acoustic detection beacons, has enabled our teams to detect defects and anticipate failures early enough to avoid production stoppages."
