Rexnord has launched its DiRXN, its new digital productivity platform, the company said in a recent press release. The system – which is pronounced ‘Direction’ – integrates industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and e-commerce technologies with a portfolio of tools, products, and services.

The DiRXN platform “delivers on operational savings and metric-driven goals,” said Rick Morse, Vice President of Digital Solutions at Rexnord’s Process and Motion platform. For example, DiRXN can help to improve mean time between failures and mean time to replace, as well as overall equipment effectiveness.

According to Rexnord, DiRXN is designed to help customers maximize production uptime and lower maintenance costs when using the company’s products and services. It does this by simplifying and accelerating the design, selection, ordering, and re-ordering of components.

“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.”
