Acquisition amplifies Fluke Reliability’s connected reliability strategy, bringing together condition monitoring and alignment hardware, asset management software and remote condition monitoring services to address customers' reliability needs.

EVERETT, Wash. (August 29  2023; Fluke Reliability release)  Fluke Reliabilitywhich empowers reliability and maintenance teams with the hardware, software and services they need to optimize asset performance, has acquired Washington-based Azima DLI, a market leader in subscription-based remote condition monitoring and AI-powered vibration analytics software.

Azima DLI's solution enables industrial businesses to increase asset uptime, reduce reactive, and unnecessary preventive maintenance, optimize manufacturing operations and asset health while maximizing revenue through accurate, predictive insights.   

Their Watchman 360 vibration analytics platform detects specific faults, predicts time-to-failure and recommends corrective action. With the most advanced automated diagnostic engine on the market, their solution has been developed over 30-plus years and analyses up to 93% of machine tests without human intervention. The algorithm filters out issues that don't need expert analysis, helping industrial teams prioritize during the current skills shortage.   

The acquisition includes their remote condition monitoring solution, where a team of Azima DLI experts perform complex vibration analysis. The analysis provides teams with reports on maintenance actions, enhancing operations, reducing downtime/cost and alleviating teams that are expertise constrained or operating with reduced headcount.   

This announcement means Fluke Reliability is further poised to help customers shift from reactive, low fidelity, low-volume analysis into advanced and scalable predictive maintenance and reliability programs. It reinforces its strategic commitment to advancing connected reliability while continuing to bring innovative solutions to customers, harnessing the transformational potential of artificial intelligence and innovative SaaS technology.  

Fluke Reliability president Ankush Malhotracommented: "This business will empower our customers with cutting-edge vibration diagnostic capabilities that revolutionize operations, optimize productivity, and enable data-driven decision-making.
