The firm will use Samotics’ SAM4 technology to extend its asset health monitoring services to extreme environments
ABB has entered into a long-term partnership with industrial equipment technology provider Samotics. The deal aims to provide enhanced condition monitoring services, the companies have announced.
The partnership allows both companies to improve their capabilities by offering extra insight into machine health and energy efficiency. As a first step, ABB will integrate Samotics’ plug-and-play monitoring solution into its digital portfolio.
Samotics’ SAM4 technology, which is based on electrical signature analysis (ESA), is expected to complement ABB Ability Condition Monitoring service for powertrains – a sensor-based solution that analyses the health and performance of rotating equipment.
In late September 2022, John Deere said it was expanding its global battery production capacities and, later in the month, His Highness Sheikh Hamdan launched the Dubai Robotics and Automation Program.
As it does not rely on mounting sensors in the field it can be deployed on machines in harsh and submerged environments, expanding ABB’s asset health monitoring capabilities of motor-driven industrial equipment, the companies explained.
“Our strategy is to build an ecosystem with leading service providers who can contribute to our customers’ overall success. With Samotics, we share the ambition to co-develop digital services that will offer even greater insight across a wider range of applications to help our customers taking better decisions,” said Adrian Guggisberg, President of ABB Motion Services.
Jasper Hoogeweegen, CEO of Samotics added: “Entering into a strategic partnership with ABB will open doors with potential customers around the world and help us scale our business. At the same time, we share a mindset and commitment to help solve reliability and energy efficiency challenges.”
ABB plans to roll out Samotics technology to customers before the end of 2022, as part of its growing service portfolio for rotating equipment.
In early October 2022, M Glory Holding Group and Dubai Industrial City announced the opening of the 45,000sqft Al Damani Electric Vehicle Manufacturing Factory.
