The Industrialist: Trends & innovations - Aug 2021

  1. 1. Innovate—Trends and innovations that matter
  2. 2. Know more about the latest announcements impacting industry, from an AI that helps salvage auto parts to the wind propulsion solutions set to slash shipping emissions.
  3. 3. Industrial is a front runner in combining human ingenuity with technology and innovation. Thomas Rinn Managing Director, Global Industrial Sector Lead, Accenture
  4. 4. Alfa Laval + Wallenius advance sustainable shipping The two companies have formed joint venture AlfaWall Oceanbird to create wind propulsion solutions for shipping vessels in the next five years. The landmark collaboration seeks to help companies meet the International Maritime Organization’s target of reducing shipping greenhouse gas emissions by half, by 2050. The Oceanbird solution uses an array of rigid, steel and composite wing sails to generate forward movement. The sails will be up to 80 meters tall, integrated with intelligent controls, and will move 360-degrees in order to capitalize on wind power from any direction. The first installation will be on a car carrier with a 7,000-vehicle capacity that will cross the Atlantic in 12 days. The technology promises an average speed of 10 knots and could cut emissions by up to 90 percent compared to the most energy-efficient vessels in use today. 01
  5. 5. Rockwell acquires Plex Systems for $2.2bn Rockwell Automation has acquired Plex Systems, a leader in cloud-based smart manufacturing solutions, for $2.22 billion. The industrial automation specialist will combine Plex Systems’ platform with its own digital solutions to drive new value with clients and accelerate its software revenue growth. Plex’s enterprise resource planning platform for manufacturers is highly scalable and provides more than 700 customers with services. The system helps manufacturers connect, automate, track and analyze their entire operations and gain a greater overview of connected supply chains. In total, Plex manages more than eight billion transactions each day. The acquisition further bolsters Rockwell Automation’s cloud offerings, following its acquisition of Fiix maintenance software. 02
  6. 6. Otis reveals next gen IoT-native elevators Otis unveiled the next generation of its smart elevators, the Gen3 and Gen 360, at its global virtual Welcome to Tomorrow event. The two models are based on Otis’ Gen2 model, which uses flat-belt technology to provide smooth, quiet, energy-efficient rides. However, the Otis ONE IoT digital platform is embedded in the new elevators. It means they continuously collect and analyze data from smart sensors to deliver real-time performance metrics and predictive insights, enabling remote problem solving. The elevators come with air purifiers, voice and gesture capabilities, a sleep mode to save energy, and the option of viewing screens for information, entertainment, and even video chats with support centers in the event of an emergency. 03
  7. 7. Kalmar extends remote services for container terminals Kalmar has launched a series of new remote services for both manual and automated container terminals, building on its Kalmar Remote Service offering. The new additions include Kalmar Maintenance Remote Support, Kalmar Automation and Software Monitoring and Kalmar Remote Automation Engineer. The services enable operators to continuously optimize equipment and software performance from anywhere, reducing downtime. Three types of support will be provided: regular equipment health checks and recommendations, continuous proactive monitoring with support from Kalmar experts, and predictive support and monitoring. Customers that use the Kalmar One automation system can add the new capabilities to their service agreements. Kalmar has also revealed a new generation rubber-tyred gantry with a stronger, lighter and simpler design that comes in customizable sizes and with intelligent capabilities. 04
  8. 8. Epiroc acquires MineRP software Epiroc has acquired, MineRP, a software company that specializes in increasing productivity in the mining industry. MineRP’s Integrated Mining Platform consolidates and standardizes operations data and can integrate with a company’s enterprise resource planning system. In doing so, it provides a full overview for technical and financial planning and control. Its Master Business Schedule, for example, integrates all mining activities to produce a short-term schedule, taking into account everything from production and maintenance to HR and finance. AI, analytics and 3D visualizations are used to help managers turn MineRP data into actionable insights. 05
  9. 9. Tractable AI optimizes auto parts recycling LKQ is partnering with Tractable to optimize the recycling of salvage vehicles. The London startup’s artificial intelligence system has been trained on millions of images and uses computer vision to assess vehicle damage and estimate the parts that can be usefully recycled. The company claims the technology can make those decisions with the same accuracy as a human – but far faster. LKQ is a specialist in sourcing alternative parts for vehicle repair and upgrades and claims to be the first recycled parts provider to apply AI to the procurement process. Tractable recently raised $60 million in funding to expand its technology. Tractable is often used by insurers to assess damaged vehicles, but the funding will help it move into other areas such as online car sales and property-related insurance claims. 06
  10. 10. ZF launches AI suite to advance driver assistance systems Mobility technology provider ZF has launched a new suite of data and AI services aimed at advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS). The cloud based ADAS.ai suite will help accelerate the development of ADAS for all types of vehicles, commercial and passenger. It is based on a super-high resolution, multi-sensor, synchronized data set developed from all possible driving and mileage scenarios, and AI technology developed with Israeli company Cognata that translates that data set into vehicle sensor inputs. ADAS.ai expertly combines virtual driving scenario data with real world test drive data, to accelerate system learnings and validate ADAS systems faster. 07
  11. 11. Samsung + Baker Hughes zone in on zero carbon Samsung Engineering has joined with global energy technology company Baker Hughes to collaborate on low to zero-carbon projects that will advance carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) and hydrogen technologies. The two companies will home in on development opportunities that stand to reduce emissions for energy and industrial customers, for example flexible pipes for hydrogen transportation and reservoir studies that focus on maximizing carbon storage. While the focus will be on low carbon solutions for refineries, petrochemical plants, and environmental facilities across the globe, the collaboration will kick off with projects for two Korean customers. 08
