Industries We Serve

There is no one-size-fits-all solution for machine health. Our team is made up of groups of industry-focused experts who understand your specific challenges and can help design the best-fit machine health solution for your business. Explore the custom solutions we’ve developed in a range of manufacturing industries.

  • Oil & Gas

    By monitoring over a million hydraulic fracturing stages across six shale basins in North America, we’ve learned that oil and gas companies that aren’t using machine health automation technology are willingly giving up at least 30% of their asset life.

  • Automotive

    Intermittently operating assets like conveyance systems are difficult to monitor for fault warnings. If these assets fail, the usual result is a full line stoppage that can cost $1M+ per hour. Our machine optimization platform gives automakers an advantage in a highly competitive market.

  • Forest Products

    Mission-critical forestry assets are extremely vulnerable to vibration damage due to high-speed operation and repeated loading and unloading cycles. Downtime can cost organizations millions of dollars per year in lost productivity and repairs.

Putting People at the Center

This feature article jointly written by Dr. Jeff Liker – Author of the Toyota Way, Dr. Jeremy Frank-CEO of KCF Technologies, Yahya Kahn – Regional Reliability Leader at Clarios, and Joe Li – Manager at Toyota dives into the transition from the lean movement and the technology advancements of Industry 4.0.

Readers will learn about the limitations of relying solely on automated systems for problem-solving, highlighting the enduring need for human intervention and adaptive problem-solving skills, especially as technologies evolve and more complex issues arise.

Insights from the authors illustrate the balance between predictive and adaptive problem-solving with the recommendation that manufacturing companies focus on developing the problem-solving abilities while integrating advanced digital technologies. This balanced approach, leads to more sustainable benefits and prepares for an industrial future where human intellect complements technological advancements.
