PREDICTIVE MAINTENANCE STARTUP PROAXION FINALIST AT 2018 NC TECH AWARDS

November 16, 2018

Research Triangle Park , N.C. -- ProAxion© leverages the latest in IoT technology to provide predictive maintenance tools for both large and small industrial facilities. Their innovative TACTIX™ 24x7 predictive maintenance system maximizes industrial uptime. The company was recently recognized as a finalist in the “Internet of Things” category at this year’s NC TECH Awards.

The TACTIX system is unique in how it drastically simplifies the process of measuring, transmitting, and analyzing vibration and temperature data for remote monitoring of rotating machines. The quick and easy plug-and-play installation removes many of the barriers of entrance into a wide variety of manufacturing facilities, because it requires zero integration with control systems or IT networks.

“While Industry 4.0 and IIoT have become common industry jargon, the complexity of most systems makes it to difficult for many manufacturing facilities to take advantage of the up-time improvements those words promise.,” explains Elliot Poger, CTO and Co-Founder of ProAxion, Inc., “TACTIX, on the other hand, is an incredibly simple yet impressively reliable way to become more data driven with maintenance activities.”

Last night, ProAxion attended the annual North Carolina Technology Association (NCTA) awards gala at the Sheraton Imperial Hotel & Convention Center, presented in conjunction with title sponsor Cherry Bekaert. The NC TECH Awards is North Carolina's only statewide technology awards program, recognizing companies and individuals who have characterized excellence, innovation and leadership. ProAxion was honored to be included in the “Internet of Things” category along with some very impressive competition: K4Connect, Republic Wireless, SAS, and VitalFlo. K4Connect won the top prize in the category.

“The NCTA put together a very competitive ‘The Internet of Things’ category this year, and we are just happy to be included among so many innovative companies,” adds Justin Rothwell, CEO and Co-Founder of ProAxion, Inc.

About Proaxion
ProAxion was founded in 2015, with the mission of leveraging the latest in IoT technology to provide easy-to-use and cost-effective predictive maintenance tools for both large and small industrial facilities. The company’s innovative products bring the benefits of data-driven operations and maintenance to the millions of machines that keep our society running and are helping to define the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). While that is useful jargon, we are dedicated to developing practical applications for technology by starting with the business need; not the other way around. To date, the company has saved customers hundreds of thousands of dollars by alerting them of impending equipment trouble and allowing them to address those problems before operations are negatively affected.

ProAxion Unveils TACTIX Predictive Maintenance System to Maximize Industrial Uptime, Overall Equipment Effectiveness

Innovative Startup Leverages Industrial Internet of Things to Help Create More Products in Shorter Amount of Time with Fewer Defects, Unplanned Machinery Stops

January, 2018

RALEIGH, N.C. -- ProAxion©, developing practical applications for technology by starting with the business need, is pleased to unveil its innovative TACTIX™ 24x7 predictive maintenance system.

TACTIX maximizes industrial uptime by drastically reducing the cost and simplifying the process of measuring, transmitting, and analyzing vibration and temperature data for remote monitoring of rotating machines. 

“At its core, TACTIX helps manufacturers create more products in a shorter amount of time with fewer defects and unplanned machinery stops,” explained Justin Rothwell, CEO and co-founder of ProAxion

Combined with total predictive maintenance techniques, TACTIX enables companies of any size (even small manufacturing operations under $1MM) to maximize up-time by decreasing equipment down-time, increase employee morale, decrease accidents, and reduce manufacturing costs while improving overall productivity and the quality of items produced.

While some sensor systems require additional hardware to integrate with a local network and require significant time and expertise to setup, the ProAxion TACTIX system is "plug & play" and does not require any customer integration, with setup to monitoring live data in literally just minutes.

Many vibration sensor systems produce raw vibration data which must be integrated with software to process and filter the data for meaningful analysis. Considering the cost of additional software analysis tools, and more importantly, the expertise required to set up and tune for meaningful alerts, the ProAxion TACTIX system produces instant value as all of this is built-in and live on installation. 

There are other 3-axis sensors on the market, plus 2-axis and 1-axis. A key benefit with 3-axis sensors is that you can measure vibration from all directions with one sensor. 2-axis and 1-axis require multiple sensors to get the same level of data, and therefore drive up the cost of deployment. ProAxion's TACTIX sensor measures 3-axis vibration.

TACTIX was specifically designed for the manufacturing environment. All materials, metals and plastics, were chosen to handle a wide range of chemical exposures and typical manufacturing cleaning methods (IP68).

ProAxion is actively developing products like TACTIX for the demanding environments of the industrial world using the latest in wireless sensor, cloud-based analytics and mobile communications technology. The company leverages extensive knowledge and expertise in predictive maintenance (PdM), using non-intrusive continuous monitoring to assess a machine asset's condition. PdM can be "route-based" with scheduled measurement by operations staff OR accomplished via installed sensors, which is also known as Condition Monitoring. The Industrial Internet of Things (IIOT) is being driven by new developments in sensor and wireless technology.

ProAxion was recently selected as a Top Ten Startup at the 2017 North Carolina Technology Association’s NC Tech Awards, recognizing companies and individuals who have characterized excellence, innovation and leadership.

Predictive Maintenance Startup ProAxion Wins Big at 2017 NC Tech Awards

Recognized as Top Ten Startup by North Carolina Technology Association

December, 2017

RALEIGH, N.C. -- ProAxion (www.proaxion.io), inventor of the innovative TACTIX™ 24x7 predictive maintenance system to maximize industrial uptime, was recently selected as a Top Ten Startup at the 2017  North Carolina Technology Association’s NC Tech Awards. 

With quick and easy plug-and-play installation, TACTIX drastically simplifies the process of measuring, transmitting, and analyzing vibration and temperature data for remote monitoring of rotating machines. 

“Industry recognizes the tremendous improvement in up-time with continuous monitoring rather than reactive maintenance or even scheduled inspection and measurement,” said Robert Oliva, CFO of PMI Ash Technologies, adding, “For improved plant reliability, lower maintenance costs, higher product quality, and enhanced safety, TACTIX is an incredibly simple yet impressively reliable way to achieve this.”

ProAxion was recognized at the annual NCTA awards gala at the Sheraton Imperial Hotel & Convention Center, presented in conjunction with title sponsor Cherry Bekaert.
