SKF launches Axios, a fully automated condition monitoring solution

SKF announced the launch of SKF Axios, a solution which reinvents the  fields of industrial machine reliability and predictive maintenance based on a collaboration  between SKF and Amazon Web Services, Inc. (AWS). 

Manufacturers want to use simple and affordable wireless technology to monitor more  equipment in their facilities. SKF Axios is a fully automated condition monitoring solution  which fulfills this need. It consists of sensors, gateways and a machine learning service  that is easy to install, commission, and scale with no experience necessary, allowing sensors  and apps to be operational within minutes. It detects anomalies and pushes notifications  allowing for quick action to avoid unexpected machine failures.  

SKF will exhibit SKF Axios in the  AWS booth (Hall 5, Booth A54) at Hannover Messe 2022 until June 2.  

SKFโ€™s team of vibration analysts and engineers will continue to be an integral part of helping  customers improve the reliability of their equipment. SKF Axios complements SKFโ€™s current  portfolio of sophisticated condition monitoring products and now provides industrial  companies with a simple solution to broaden their rotating asset predictive maintenance  programs.  

 โ€œWith SKF Axios, we are  able to provide a larger portion of the industrial market with actionable insights leading to  improved decision making and more efficient maintenance planning and scheduling.  Through leveraging these insights and SKFโ€™s knowledge of rotating equipment, customers  can improve machine performance and overall reliability of their operations,โ€ said John Schmidt, president, Industrial Region Americas of SKF.

 โ€œSKF Axios represents a  tremendous opportunity for industrial customers of all sizes to benefit from scalable, data driven, machine-learning technologies offered by AWS. These solutions enable industrial  customers to make better decisions faster, increasing operational efficiency, and reducing  the costs associated with unplanned equipment downtime. We remain committed to offering  our expertise in cloud solutions, IoT systems, and machine learning to enable SKF to  constantly innovate and enhance their industrial products and services,โ€ said Vasi Philomin, vice president of AI Services, AWS.  

Inventory for SKF Axios is expected to be available in July 2022 in North America with other  regions expected to follow throughout the year.
