A Connected Reliability Journey in IIoT: Fluke Reliability Acquires Azima DLI

It’s no fluke that Fluke Reliability is on the forefront of industrial innovation. The Fluke line of testing and measurement tools helps keep businesses’ industrial operations up and running in more than 100 countries, as customers count on Fluke for their rugged, reliable, and accurate test instruments. As the Fluke team itself has said, “We offer test, measurement, and monitoring products and software used in electronic design, as well as manufacturing and network troubleshooting.” Making all of this happen in electrical, medical, process and calibration applications, Fluke – a wholly owned subsidiary of the industrial tech conglomerate Fortive, which accelerates transformations across high-impact fields with high-tech solutions and “high-touch human impact” – made more news at the tail end of August with an announcement:

Fluke has acquired Azima DLI, a 1966-founded company that now provides AI-powered vibration analytics software, as well as predictive, workload-expediting instrumentation for remote machine condition monitoring.

Given what Fluke and Azima DLI have in common? Again, certainly no fluke. This is a smart IIoT decision.

Here are the details:

  • The acquisition of Azima DLI amplifies Fluke Reliability’s connected reliability strategy, combining hardware for condition monitoring and alignment, asset management software, and remote condition monitoring services to address customers' myriad asset reliability needs.
  • Additionally, this purchase accelerates AI-powered predictive maintenance for Fluke customers. This means customers can now execute smart and proactive maintenance more reliably so they can shift towards predictive maintenance as needs arise.
  • Speaking of needs, this acquisition also addresses a key market need by helping alleviate current skills shortages; i.e. by utilizing an advanced diagnostic engine that analyzes approximately 93% of machine tests without human intervention.

Per Fluke Reliability President Ankush Malhotra: "By adding Azima DLI’s capabilities to our own, we empower customers with cutting-edge vibration diagnostic capabilities that revolutionize operations, optimize productivity, and enable data-driven decision-making. It is a natural fit for us as we continue to support businesses on their predictive maintenance and connected reliability journey, and it represents a significant step forward to drive our customers' growth and success in the industry."

“We are incredibly proud of this best-in-class vibration analytics and remote condition monitoring platform,” added Joe Van Dyke, VP of Engineering for Azima DLI, “and, as part of Fluke Reliability, we’re very excited to see more businesses benefit from our solution.”
