Before introducing the 3d Signals Asset Performance Monitoring (APM) solution, ROTHENBERGER monitored its 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.
ROTHENBERGER has been developing, producing, and marketing tools, machines, and equipment for use in the plumbing, HVAC, and pipeline sectors for over 70 years.
As the preferred partner of professional users, ROTHENBERGER offers complete solutions for pipe installation and associated service and maintenance work. With more than 6,000 products made by ROTHENBERGER, we offer the world's most comprehensive line of modern premium pipe tools and machines, as well as environmental technology.
Our constant commitment to research and design allows ROTHENBERGER to produce world-renowned tools and machinery. Using advanced and sophisticated technology, we develop and manufacture a comprehensive portfolio, comprising over 6,000 high-quality products.
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. This resulted in an average machine availability increase of 28% within four months of installation.
