3DSignals and SAMSON Announce New Strategic Partnership

By Ken Briodagh March 29, 2017

In a recent announcement, SAMSON, maker and developer of control valve technology, has said it will invest in and leverage sound-based predictive maintenance company 3DSignals’ deep learning technology to develop smart valves with embedded predictive process intelligence and maintenance capabilities.

3DSignals and SAMSON will use this strategic partnership to integrate 3DSignals’ artificial intelligence-based acoustic monitoring technology into SAMSON flow control devices and systems.SAMSON will begin offering smart valves with embedded acoustic monitoring capabilities for process intelligence as soon as Q4 of 2017.

“The SAMSON name has become synonymous with low-maintenance products for the most challenging industrial applications,” said Dr. Andreas Widl, CEO, SAMSON. “This is the right time for us to begin collaborating with companies like 3DSignals that are driving innovation in IoT and artificial intelligence. This will enable us to go beyond devices and into new services such as adaptive predictive maintenance, and gain process control insights that are rapidly becoming a must in today’s digitized manufacturing environments. Our customers will see immediate value through smart data, and SAMSON intends to increase cooperation with technology innovators to spearhead this trend.”

3DSignals’ system includes airborne ultrasonic sensors that detect anomalies in the sound that machines make while running. The platform’s deep learning and predictive analytics software is designed to process these sound signals and aggregate the data, allowing authorized users to receive real-time alerts 24/7 from any remote location.

“It was very clear from our initial discussions that SAMSON is extremely focused on advancing the flow control space through innovation,” said Amnon Shenfeld, Co-Founder and CEO, 3DSignals. “The synergy was obvious. 3DSignals identifies, learns and sends alerts of phenomena that are strongly correlated with equipment deterioration or indicative of process control inefficiencies. Also, we are seeing adoption by the same industries SAMSON operates in: energy, oil and gas, and chemicals and petrochemicals. With SAMSON’s reputation for uncompromising quality and our innovative approach to applying artificial intelligence in the plant, we see a great fit and win-win for both sides.”
