Schaeffler buys digital CM specialist
17 October 2017
The Schaeffler Group has acquired Chemnitz-based IT company, autinity, which specialises in digital machine data recording and evaluation.
The availability of machine data and the near real-time recording thereof, as well as storage and analysis, is decisive for the digitalisation of production. For this reason, Schaeffler is focusing on technically simple and scalable integration of machines and equipment into a digital ecosystem for its production. Moreover, available analysis technologies are to be made applicable to production data.
Chief digital officer, Gerhard Baum said: “We have been using software solutions by autinity for many years now. The acquisition of this company will help us to intensify our collaboration and accelerate further developments in the fields of machine data recording and condition monitoring. Both topics are key essential elements of Schaeffler’s digital agenda, which are in strong demand both from internal and external customers.”
