Kelkheim, Germany and Kfar Saba, Israel, 8 September 2020.
Rothenberger Group, a world leading pipe tool and pipe machining tool manufacturer, announced today that it selected the 3d Signals Asset Performance Monitoring solution for the digitalization of its shop floor. The 3d Signals sensors and edge computer will be installed on some of its critical assets in order to leverage real-time data and visibility to improve machine availability and productivity.
With courage, efficiency and entrepreneurial spirit carved on their flag, the Rothenberger Group is committed to innovation and a forward-thinking approach. The quality, reliability and durability of its products have earned the Rothenberger Group a market leadership position in many of the markets in which it operates. To maintain their competitive edge, managers of the group have decided to perform a digital transformation in order to enhance productivity and reduce operating costs. This process has become more urgent and significant in the last few months, following the COVID-19 situation that increases the financial pressure on manufacturers, and creates a greater demand for remote-management capabilities and efficiency improvements.
3d Signals, an Israeli-based startup with German headquarters in Langen, Hessen, is providing a plug & play machine digitalization solution that enables machines of any make and model to be network connected in just a few hours. Using non-invasive sensors and an edge data acquisition system, the 3d Signals solution collects signals from the machine and generates valuable insights on a cloud-based monitoring system, complete with live views, reports and alerts. The solution is in use in a sister company of the Rothenberger Group, and has been proven to provide fast results, enabling managers to have access to real-time manufacturing data, and to take data-driven decisions that promote transparency and employee motivation.
Dr. Helmut Rothenberger, Chairman of the Supervisory Board, Rothenberger AG: “The Rothenberger Group has always been an innovator and early adaptor of new technologies that enabled it to spearhead its industry.
