Rexnord announces digital productivity platform
Rexnord has announced the launch of DiRXN, its new digital productivity platform based on the integration of innovative Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and ecommerce technologies.
DiRXN directly connects customers to data and information that allows them to optimise productivity across all stages of their lifecycles.
“From the procurement of new equipment, through its installation, use and asset management, customers can expect a return on mission-critical investments,” said Rick Morse, vice president, digital solutions, of Rexnord’s Process & Motion platform.
“The DiRXN platform delivers on operational savings and metric-driven goals, including mean time between failure (MTBF) and mean time to replace (MTTR), as well as overall equipment effectiveness. These are key performance indicators that DiRXN can positively impact for global customers.”
“Rexnord has been a vital part of industrial infrastructure for more than 125 years,” said Kevin Zaba, president of Rexnord’s Process & Motion Control platform. “We’re digitising over a century of application expertise and applying it to traditional tasks and problems allowing customers to solve them in smarter, more efficient ways, while giving Rexnord more visibility to customer and product behaviors that will further improve our portfolio of industry solutions.”
DiRXN is designed to help customers maximise production uptime and lower maintenance costs when utilising Rexnord products and services. Some initial and near term examples of valuable productivity enablers include: selector, configurator and drawing tools that use robust criteria and logic to quickly and accurately guide users to the right products for their needs, and an ecommerce centre allowing users and partners to fill a shopping cart, view their transaction history, and track individual orders in a streamlined process.
The DiRXN platform designs follow a set of digital technology standards and use a common IT infrastructure to ensure a consistent user experience and allow for future expansion of the initiative. DiRXN will drive digital transformation, new business models and allow customers to solve smarter with Rexnord solutions.
