ICL Expands its Machine Health Program, Building on Million Dollars in Savings in First Ten Months

Share

Augury, a leading AI-based Machine Health solution provider, today announced a major expansion program with customer ICL - a global manufacturer of products based on unique minerals. ICL has seen great success using Augury’s Machine Health solution, avoiding more than $1,000,000 in production losses and downtime costs in only 10 months. As part of the global roll out, Augury's technology will be implemented across ICL factories located in Israel, Europe, North and South America.

Augury’s Machine Health solutions have transformed and improved ICL’s manufacturing operations by reducing unplanned downtime and providing prescriptive insights into the health and performance of ICL’s production assets. The two companies will continue working together to advance ICL’s quality and productivity goals by digitizing ICL’s world class production processes and improving Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) across all facilities.

“ICL is always looking to innovate and improve the way we manufacture and produce our products,” said Eyal Yaffe, VP Operational Excellence & Innovation Potash Division. “Augury’s Machine Health technology has changed the way we approach reliability and maintenance across our organization by improving the predictability and visibility regarding how our machines are actually performing. Expanding this technology to more facilities globally will help us improve our throughput, reliability and overall production capabilities.”

Augury’s end-to-end solution encompasses the benefits of predictive maintenance by providing industry leaders with prescriptive machine health insights to improve machine performance and overall production. Upon installation, machine operators are notified at the first sign of any developing issues with detailed malfunction analysis and maintenance recommendations. Even the slightest changes to a machine’s health status are carefully diagnosed and filtered so customers only receive meaningful and actionable notifications, not noise. These actionable insights help users correct machine malfunctions before they cause unplanned downtime or production delays.

“ICL’s company-wide dedication to improving the reliability, productivity and resiliency of their manufacturing sites through Machine Health has helped them garner transformative results in a short period of time,” said Saar Yoskovitz, co-founder and CEO of Augury. “ICL’s team has been a pleasure to work with and elevating our partnership will only enable us to show greater success together, further proving that Machine Health is a foundational principle of the future of manufacturing.”

ABB: Q3 2020 Results23.10.2020 06:46:00 CESTPress release

“Third quarter revenues in all business areas were still dampened due to the impact of COVID-19, although a strong recovery in China and ongoing cost mitigation efforts supported a strong underlying performance. On the upside, the integration of GEIS and turnaround of Installation Products in Electrification is starting to bear fruit and Motion is performing robustly. Robotics and Industrial Automation, on the other hand, are taking more time to recover,” said Björn Rosengren, CEO of ABB. “We are pushing ahead with the decentralization of the group and the ongoing review of our portfolio, while carrying out our share buyback program as planned. We look forward to presenting further details on our strategic progress at our Capital Markets Day on November 19.” KEY FIGURES CHANGE CHANGE ($ millions, unless otherwise indicated) Q3 2020 Q3 2019 US$ Comparable 9M 2020 9M 2019 US$ Comparable Orders 6,109 6,688 -9% -8% 19,509 21,702 -10% -7% Revenues 6,582 6,892 -4% -4% 18,952 20,910 -9% -7% I
