Nexmatix to Showcase the First Smart Pneumatic Solution at World’s Largest Industrial Fair
Company will display groundbreaking pneumatic control-valve technology at Germany’s Hannover Messe
St. Louis, MO (April 24, 2017) –
Building upon its reputation as a leader in smart valve technology, this week Nexmatix demonstrates its offerings at Hannover Messe, the largest industrial fair and automation tradeshow in the world. For the demonstration, Nexmatix is collaborating with equipment- and energy-efficiency specialist Plethora IIoT as well as Xilinx, the leading provider of All Programmable semiconductor products, including FPGAs, SoCs, MPSoCs, RFSoCs and 3D ICs.. All three companies are members of the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC®) and are working together to advance machine learning and predictive maintenance for smart factories. The demonstration showcases the interoperability of components and the power of collaboration between companies.
To put it simply, this demonstration means the Smart Factory is here now.
The Nexmatix smart control valves are equipped with embedded sensors to continuously monitor for inefficiencies. Nexmatix CEO Victoria Gonzalez explained: “Tradeshow attendees will be able to see how the valves provide data on leaks, valve faults and pressure faults in real time. This immediate data stream helps original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) run smarter machines and help end users reduce energy cost and minimize downtime.” Javier Díaz Rozo, IIoT team leader for Plethora, said, “We are excited to partner with Nexmatix, as the company brings a unique, highly compelling offering that can be implemented across a variety of industries. This technology lets end-users take control of their efficiency concerns in a way that’s simply not possible with traditional valves.”
“The Nexmatix technology represents the type of industry advancement that will have major significance in the coming months and years,” added Dan Isaacs, Director of IIoT Corporate Strategy and Market Development for Xilinx. “These valves don’t just monitor the data – they also perform the analytics, in real-time. This enables factories to acquire, process, analyze and act on the data at the edge, without requiring a sophisticated data collection system to start implementing their ‘smart factory’ strategy. I see that as a game-changer.”
“This is the dawn of the 4th Industrial Revolution,” said Victoria Gonzalez. “We’re very excited to be a part of this breakthrough in manufacturing.”
Hannover Messe opens its doors today, with exhibits on view through Friday, April 28.
