Before introducing the 3d Signals Asset Performance Monitoring (APM) solution, ROTHENBERGER monitored their assets with traditional tower lights and 24V controls provided by the machine vendors. As part of their transition to the industry 4.0 era, ROTHENBERGER looked for a solution that would enable accurate visibility and full transparency into the production floor.
About The Customer
The ROTHENBERGER Group is a world leading pipe tool and pipe machining tool manufacturer, offering end-to-end solutions for pipe installation and associated services and maintenance work. The ROTHENBERGER Group unites 65 companies. The ROTHENBERGER Group is committed to innovation and a forward-thinking approach aligned with their convictions and entrepreneurial spirit carved on their banner.
The 3d Signals APM solution was chosen and gradually installed on selected critical assets as of August 2020. With the use of 3d Signals, ROTHENBERGER now has reliable and trustworthy visibility, providing them with accurate and real-time status of machine availability across their factories. Unlike their previous solution, 3d Signals highlighted major gaps in productivity, where once identified, such gaps were addressed and resolved through data-driven decision making.

Predictive Maintenance for Industrial Chillers
For global leaders in the industrial chiller manufacturing, reliability of the entire production process is of the utmost importance. Chillers are refrigeration systems that produce ice water to provide cooling for a process or industrial application. One of those leaders sought a way to respond to asset performance issues, even before they occur. The intelligence to guarantee maximum reliability of cooling devices is embedded (pre-alarming). A pre-alarming phase means that the cooling device still works, but symptoms may appear, telling manufacturers that a failure is likely to occur in the near future. Chillers who are not internet connected at that moment, provide little insight in this pre-alarming phase.
