3DSignals, startup and pioneer in acoustic-based analytics for industrial machines, today announced completing an “A Round” of million, bringing the total investment in the company to million, to aid in the acceleration of manufacturing industry digitalization. This round was led by early-stage venture capital fund State of Mind Ventures, known for backing technology-driven, game-changing companies. Other investors included Grove Ventures, based in Israel, Mr. Enrique M. Aboitiz Jr. from the Philippines, and German Dive Digital.
The funding is testament to the early success of 3DSignals’ innovative Asset Performance Monitoring solution, and further strengthens the startup’s position and mission to bridge the gap to manufacturing digitalization, otherwise known as ‘Industry 4.0’.
Though digitalization promises to transform the manufacturing landscape, in reality, its fruition is reliant upon the surmounting of significant obstacles. Cisco* states, “By some estimates there are 60 million machines in factories throughout the world and 90% are not connected. Meanwhile, 70% of the machines are more than 15 years old.” According to European Parliament Think Tank**, “Large investments are needed if enterprises are to make the move to Industry 4.0…perhaps as much as €140 billion annually in Europe.” In addition, SMEs could be daunted by the size of such investments, “who fear the transition to digital because they cannot access how it will affect their value chains.”
3DSignals’ acoustic-based technology, coupled with AI and machine learning, powerfully bridges this shortfall by extracting operational performance parameters such as availability, speed, and health of industrial machines, and generates insights that improve utilization and increase machines’ productivity. The 3Dsignals solution can be installed in less than an hour, works with a variety of machines from different vendors, both old and new, and shows immediate value.
Founded in 2015, 3DSignals’ groundbreaking solution has already achieved worldwide recognition for its ability to monitor and maintain industrial equipment and processes. The startup achieved the accolade of “Cool Vendor 2018” from Gartner for its innovative cloud-based predictive monitoring solution that collects sounds from industrial machines and equipment.
German manufacturer, SAMSON AG achieved a considerable increase in its overall equipment effectiveness (OEE), with 3DSignals’ Asset Performance Monitoring solution, which was successfully installed and up and running in under an hour. “Each installation of 3DSignals’ system improves asset productivity 15%+,” said Dr. Andreas Widl, CEO, SAMSON AG. “Looking across the entire value proposition, one can systematically avoid bottlenecks and predict unanticipated downtime. This provides significant value for any production company. We are privileged to be part of 3DSignals’ journey.”
Since the deployment of the 3DSignals solution in its factories, the company reports a substantial improvement in daily operations, including workflow optimization, increased production efficiency and machinery optimisation, accomplishing a remarkable advancement towards full factories digitalization.
3DSignals management team includes Ariel Rosenfeld, CEO, Offer Affias, co-founder and CTO, Amit Ashkenazi, co-founder and VP R&D, and David Koren, VP Operations. Rosenfeld was the general manager of the USB Flash Drive division at M-Systems, the Israeli company behind the first flash drive, which later was sold to SanDisk in 2006 for .6B. Ariel worked at M-Systems under Dov Moran, Managing Partner of Grove Ventures and the inventor of the USB Flash Drive. Rosenfeld led the division to a leadership position and to sales growth from M to over 0M within only three years.
“This is an exciting time for 3DSignals,” said Ariel Rosenfeld, CEO. “There is a growing need for our solution as it has already shown remarkable results within existing customers. Enterprises are realizing they can significantly improve operational efficiencies and cut costs through digitalization, and this trend has only just started.”
“Our plans are to focus on growth by increasing 3DSignals’ install base significantly over the next few months across Europe,” concludes Rosenfeld.
“We, at State of Mind Ventures, are excited to become an investor in 3D Signals and to join its team on this adventure and help them realize their vision and mission. Industrial companies in Europe and North-America are experiencing tremendous economical pressure driven by competition from the east, as well as increasing economical and geo-political market fragmentation and taxation. Their best route, I believe, to remain competitive, is to adopt, as soon as possible, IoT technologies and used them to upgrade their existing infrastructure, without replacing it.” said Yuval Baharav, General Partner at State of Mind Ventures. “3D Signals’ talented team, led by Ariel Rosenfeld, whom we believe is a unique and proven leader, is delivering a transformative technology to its customers, showing great promise to it users and shareholders.”
“Digitalizing the factory floor is one of the biggest challenges and opportunities in Industry 4.0 innovation vertical.” Said Lotan Levkowitz, a partner in Grove Ventures, an Israeli VC that specializes in early stage deep tech investments with focus on the Industry 4.0 sector. Lotan added that “3DSignals’ unique acoustic based solution enables a frictionless integration to industrial environments and brings the right offering with a quick ROI for the industry. We are proud to back the company from the first day and to experience first-hand the market acceptance to their technology.”
“Digitalization in under an hour is a phenomenal achievement. This is a highly exciting area of investment right now”, said Mr. Enrique M. Aboitiz Jr. “3DSignals is creating next generation technology that will drive advancement and change for a connected future and a better world”.
Named “Cool vendor 2018” by Gartner and awarded “Entrepreneurial Company of the Year 2017” by Frost & Sullivan, 3DSignals pioneers acoustics-AI for industrial machines.

Archeio Technologies (Archeio), the leading provider of oil & gas content management and smart search technology, announces that it has signed a license agreement with Tourmaline Oil Corp. (Tourmaline, TSX: TOU) to deploy Archeio’s SkyWell® software company-wide. Following a two-month selection process that compared SkyWell to multiple enterprise content management solutions, the Canadian-based oil & gas company selected Archeio’s cloud software for its superior speed and energy data classification accuracy. Tourmaline over time plans to deploy SkyWell across its three business units to search large volumes of unstructured oil & gas data, which includes surface land files, engineering reports, and geological surveys. The producer has seen rapid results in its surface land team where the software has reduced key workflows from days to minutes. Tourmaline joins a large number of North American oil & gas producers who have adopted SkyWell and is Archeio’s first client in Canada.
Headquartered in Calgary, Alberta, Tourmaline is Canada’s second largest natural gas producer and the largest producer in the Alberta Deep Basin. With approximately 3,000 wells and an aggressive drilling program, the producer had amassed tens of thousands of print and digital files related to its operations. Inconsistent file naming, sprawling network folders, and physical filing rooms created barriers to information driven consumers. Tourmaline wanted to standardize its unstructured data sets and apply best-in-class technology to classify its asset documentation and allow staff to quickly locate the information needed to drive workflows across its diverse operations, including surface land, joint venture, accounting, and production operations.
“The Archeio team continue to be a pleasure to work with and we envision additional departments adopting SkyWell in the coming months for streamlining their records management. We continue to be impressed with the willingness of the Archeio team to listen to our various use cases and enhance their system in order to accommodate us,” said Rich Hodgkinson, Tourmaline’s ITS Project Lead on the SkyWell implementation.
Tourmaline evaluated Archeio’s SkyWell software in a head-to-head comparison with four other enterprise content management solution providers and large software vendors. The oil & gas producer selected SkyWell because it outperformed the alternatives on every level, including ease-of-use, ability to quickly find reliable information, expertise in classifying a wide variety of complex energy data types, and lower cost. Additional factors influencing Tourmaline’s selection include highly personalized service from Archeio staff and flexibility in modifying SkyWell functionality based on the needs of their end users.
“We are extremely proud to be a part of Tourmaline’s unstructured data management strategy and look forward to bringing the benefits of SkyWell to the Canadian market for the first time,” said Rex Womble, CEO and co-founder of Archeio. “It’s a true honor to be recognized as the best-in-class oil & gas content management technology, which is exactly what Archeio set out to do and something we continuously strive to live up to,” he said. Womble continued, “We would not be here without amazing customers like Tourmaline who have taught us so much along the way, and for that the Archeio team is especially grateful.”
SkyWell is being deployed throughout Tourmaline in phases, starting with the company’s surface land team. Utilizing SkyWell’s high-speed document processing technology, land and legal records have been classified according to a standard document taxonomy defined by the producer. Users are now able to perform powerful keyword searches on document metadata and file contents or locate information in real-time using a map-based interface from their PC or mobile device. Rapid results include accelerating delivery of the lease details needed by accounting staff for regulatory reporting, a process that now takes just a few minutes instead of days. SkyWell has also enabled Tourmaline’s three business units to adopt consistent surface land data management best practices and enforce data standards, such as lease and well naming.

Michelman is excited to introduce its new family of Unyte surface modifiers formulated specifically for manufacturers of technical textiles and pre-preg fabrics. Designed to help technical textiles and pre-preg fabrics achieve advanced form and function in both woven and nonwoven materials, this brand of water-based emulsions act as binders for carbon, glass, aramid, basalt, UHMWPE, natural, and other polymeric fibers.
“We are known in the fibers and composites industry as the interface adhesion experts,” explains Mr. Steve Bassetti, Global Marketing Director for the Industrial Manufacturing Group at Michelman. “Our expertise in formulating surface treatments such as sizings, binders, and film formers, strengthened by our understanding of end-use applications, provides technical textile manufacturers an unequaled set of solutions offering various functionalities that can be applied at the fiber level or as an oversizing. Specifically, we help the construction, ballistic, medical & hygiene, automotive, filtration media, pre-preg, and consumer products industries improve the performance and functional behavior of textile applications.”
The performance and production of technical textiles are enhanced through six distinct pillars of functionality: binding, adhesion, processability, heat resistance, print receptivity, and anti-blocking.
Unyte Bind offers multiple solutions that improve fiber-to-fiber adhesion. This improved binding of fibers creates a better structure for applications such as laid or woven scrim and pre-pregs.
Unyte Grip promotes the adhesion between fibers and polymeric matrices helping to improve mechanical properties. Increased fiber-to-matrix adhesion is beneficial to pre-preg fabric for composites and multilayer systems, such as roofing underlayment, that combine woven and nonwoven materials.
Unyte Glide is for manufacturers of pre-preg fabric and multilayer systems combining woven and nonwoven materials, who can use these grades to increase lubricity and slip and facilitate tow spreading of fibers in technical textile production. They are also used as over-sizing to improve release, drape, and fabric processability.
Unyte Heat operates at elevated temperatures without degradation and can withstand more thermal recycling operations. It provides heat resistance during primary and secondary processing, as well as in the end-use product, making it an ideal solution on braided three-dimensional structures where thermal insulation is required.
Unyte Print boosts ink adhesion for improved print receptivity and minimal color bleed. Fabrics that are over-printed for decoration and branding, or with identification codes where legibility is essential, can benefit from these solutions.
Unyte Slip produces outstanding anti-block properties making it perfect for fabrics, nonwovens, and pre-pregs which need to be stacked or rolled. It helps prevent finished goods from sticking together, and improve interlayer release and stack-ability.
Michelman is introducing its exciting new Unyte family in Hall 5, Booth C34 at JEC World 2019. The show is being held March 12-14 in Paris.

Founded in 2014, MicaSense is an American sensor company made up of engineering, optics, and agricultural experts who are passionate about precision farming and eager to contribute to its worldwide adoption. Today, the company reports its third consecutive year of 70% RedEdge sales growth and announces plans to increase its presence overseas and continue high levels of investment in research and development.
Successful Products, Strong Partnerships
Designed to be highly adaptable for integration with a variety of drones, MicaSense sensors are used by researchers, drone service providers and growers in the agriculture industry. As a member of the Parrot Group, a leading European drone group comprised of industry leaders (Pix4D, senseFly, etc.), MicaSense is positioned well as a major player in the agricultural drone sensor market. RedEdge, the company’s leading sensor, is in its fourth iteration (RedEdge-MX) with thousands of units sold. In addition to providing growers and service providers with valuable insights into their crops, data from RedEdge cameras has also been featured in over 100 research publications, establishing RedEdge as a trusted name in the industry.
MicaSense has also seen success with its newest sensor, Altum, released this past October. Benefiting from four years of ongoing development, Altum is the first of its kind in the industry. Among other patented technology, it features revolutionary synchronized capture of thermal and high-resolution multispectral imagery. This enables analytics that seamlessly combine multispectral and thermal data, enabling customers to monitor chlorophyll content and crop health while simultaneously providing insights into irrigation and water stress. In November and December, Altum sales accounted for over 35% of MicaSense sales revenue, pointing towards a strong adoption of this next-generation sensor.
“Altum was created specifically to solve pain points for our customers and to empower them to push the envelope of what already exists in agriculture. Whether it is a researcher devising a new way to monitor drought or a grower spotting pests before they’ve spread to an entire field, our vision is to build tools that offer unlimited opportunities for innovation.”
Since its founding, MicaSense has committed to ensuring its products stand up to use in the field, allocating increased budget to research and development each year. All MicaSense’s products are manufactured in Seattle, Washington, allowing for high levels of quality control. This commitment to quality has helped MicaSense forge partnerships with leading drone integrators and manufacturers, such as Wingtra, Delair-Tech, PrecisionHawk, and BirdsEyeView Aerobotics, providing growers and drone service providers a wide variety of compatible drone platform options. Recently, the company announced its participation in the DJI Payload SDK program, a program allowing for seamless integration between DJI aircraft and sensors. Both RedEdge-MX and Altum are now fully integrated with the DJI M200, DJI’s leading professional drone, completing a fleet of professional multi-rotor and fixed wing drones for precision farming.
Increased International Distribution and Investment in R&D
Building on another year of strong growth, the company plans to expand international sales channels and dedicate additional sales and marketing resources to Asia and Europe in an effort to better serve a rapidly expanding customer base.
“Growth in Asia-Pacific and Europe exceeded our expectations last year and we anticipate even higher demand in 2019. Customers there appreciate the usability and accuracy of RedEdge and have responded incredibly well to our new sensor designs. We’ve placed a high priority on getting more of our sensors to these areas this upcoming year.
MicaSense also plans on continuing high levels of investment in research and development. Making use of partnerships with prominent agricultural research institutions, the company intends to focus on data driven tools that support growers and bring the future of analytics to agriculture. For example, vineyard producers with access to analytics from thermal and multispectral imagery could identify not only which vines need water, but at what time during the day they need it the most. For growers in drought prone areas, this information may become vital as water becomes more scarce.
“Our research and development does not begin or end with sensor hardware. We are constantly looking at ways to streamline the data collection, processing and analytics workflow so better operational decisions can be made at the field’s edge, by growers themselves.”
MicaSense is at the forefront of drone sensor development for precision agriculture. Passionate about producing the right tools for their customers, MicaSense solutions enable growers, agronomists and researchers to make the right calls at the right time. All MicaSense products are designed and manufactured in the USA.

For those looking to convert their traditional wood burning fireplace into something more efficient and economical, a gas fireplace insert may be the perfect solution. Upgrading the old fireplaces with fireplace inserts in Fremont and Hayward can give one a new living place with comfortable warmth.
Made up of cast iron or steel, these inserts give you a sense of warmth and comfort with an efficient burning. Available according to the type of fuels such as coal, and EPA certified wood, these inserts utilize latest technologies to save on the utility bills while enjoying the warm atmosphere of the room.
With boastful features such as fans, blowers, thermostats, and blowers, these fireplace inserts can be an excellent option for the household. Those who have an older home with wood burning inserts can benefit from a new insert. The wood fireplaces were designed with open combustion for effectiveness in low heating.
Usually, wood fireplaces acquire more air and result in quick burning and also wasting the energy quickly. However, using the fireplace inserts, the closed insulated glass doors slow down the burning and increase the temperature that results in stable combustion without wasting much energy.
This will bring an agreeable change in the energy bills when it comes to heating the room. Apart from providing one with protection and peace of mind, professional gas fireplace installation is essential to ensuring the unit's efficient function and performance, as well as making sure that installation mistakes don't compromise the gas fireplace warranty.
At Mister Chimney & Nova Fireplaces, the professional installers bring their extensive knowledge and experience into installing gas inserts, while providing beautiful conversions. They will work diligently to accomplish the right fit for a seamless aesthetic. The professional technicians will perform an inspection of the entire system to ensure the safe and comfortable operation of the gas insert fireplace.

LifeSaver®, a UK-based manufacturer of portable and reusable water filtration systems, proudly announces it has passed compliance testing for NSF Protocol P248 Military Operations – Microbiological Water Purifiers. This certification means LifeSaver’s filter technology meets the high standards of the U.S. Military, and places the brand among an elite few to have achieved this benchmark.
NSF Protocol P248 was developed with the U.S. Army Public Health Command (USAPHC) based on the EPA Guide Standard, with the goal of providing deployed military personnel the capability to produce sustainable quantities of safe drinking water in any environment. Compliance is required before a manufacturer can market to the U.S. Military. LifeSaver achieved compliance after rigorous testing of its Jerrycan product, which was tested to more than 5,000 liters of sustained usage. P248 testing uses two strains of virus to ensure effective removal by the filtration system and pushes the filter to the point of clogging to make sure it continues to protect the user after that occurs, effectively measuring the filter’s failsafe technology.
“This certification gives us the green light to sell directly into the U.S. Department of Defense without any further performance evaluation required,” says Joe Lovegrove, Technical Manager for LifeSaver. “This is a landmark result for us as a commercial business and production facility and moves us into a different league than almost all our retail competitors. It should also be noted that although we tested Jerrycans, all of our filters are made to exactly the same standards using the same materials as those with which we passed this test.”
LifeSaver was created in 2007 following back-to-back natural disasters in southeast Asia (Indian Ocean Tsunami) and the United States (Hurricane Katrina). Since then, the company has expanded from working solely in the humanitarian realm to offering a variety of consumer-friendly products ideal for backpacking, adventure travel and emergency preparedness. LifeSaver products previously achieved NSF Protocol 231, or “highly protective tier,” standards for drinking water, and effectively remove cysts, bacteria and viruses with no chemicals or electrical power required.
Founded in the UK in 2007, LifeSaver came to life following back-to-back natural disasters: the Indian Ocean Tsunami and Hurricane Katrina. Inventor Michael Pritchard felt compelled to address the resulting need for access to clean drinking water. The first LifeSaver prototype was developed in Pritchard’s garage, and became the world’s first portable water filter capable of removing the smallest known waterborne viruses. Since that time, LifeSaver has established itself as an effective and long-lasting solution to drinking water issues in the humanitarian and military sectors, as well as for outdoor enthusiasts. www.iconlifesaver.com

Cummins Selects Agility Warehouse Park in Ghana for Regional DC Agility facility to stock parts for Cummins regional operations in West Africa ACCRA, Ghana – May 22, 2018 – Agility, a leading global logistics provider, has leased warehouse space in the Agility Warehouse Park in Ghana to Cummins for a new West African Distribution Center.
Cummins, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of diesel engines, generators, filtration and associated engine components, will use the facility to stock and distribute a range of over 10,000 spare parts for Cummins operations across West Africa.
Cummins joins other multinationals and small and medium-sized Ghanaian companies that have chosen the Agility Warehouse Park at Tema because its secure, convenient location provides international standard warehousing and services for their West African operations.
Location was a significant factor in Cummins’ selection. The Agility park is eight kilometers from Ghana’s main seaport and is adjacent to the Aflao highway connecting Ghana to Ivory Coast, Togo, Benin, and Nigeria.
Felix Bani, Cummins Operations Manager – Central Supply Chain Operations (CSCO), said: “Product distribution can be fast-tracked, either by road, sea or air. By choosing the Agility Warehouse Park, Cummins has addressed one of the biggest constraints to companies doing business in West Africa – the lack of quality infrastructure.”
Bani said Cummins was also attracted to the facility because it meets international environmental standards and features eco-friendly construction materials. Agility used energy efficient roof and side insulated panels; wind-driven roof fans; skylights for natural lighting; LED and energy-saving bulbs; and solar-powered streetlights. The site will recycle paper, plastic, metal, and carton waste. It provides eco-friendly waste management services and carbon footprint reporting.
The Agility Warehouse Park in Ghana is part of a network of international standard warehouse parks that Agility is funding and developing across key markets in Africa to support the development of domestic and regional trade.
Geoffrey White, CEO Agility Africa, said, “We believe that the provision of international standard warehouses in Africa for storage, distribution and light manufacturing is one of the fundamental building blocks necessary for economic growth. The Agility Warehouse Parks enable companies, whether multinationals such as Cummins, or small and medium enterprises, to access quality infrastructure easily, quickly and cost effectively.”
Agility is one of the world’s leading providers of integrated logistics. It is a publicly traded company with more than .6 billion in revenue and more than 22,000 employees in over 500 offices across 100 countries. Agility Global Integrated Logistics (GIL) provides supply chain solutions to meet traditional and complex customer needs. GIL offers air, ocean and road freight forwarding, warehousing, distribution, and specialized services in project logistics, fairs and events, and chemicals.
