Mobius Institute recently announced that its two newest products, iLearnReliability and Mobius iVibe, were awarded the highest recognition in the Plant Engineering product of the year competition. The iLearnReliability received the gold award in the productivity and training category, while Mobius iVibe earned the grand award over all product categories.
The winners of the product of the year competition were recognized at an awards dinner in Chicago on March 31. The awards provide the highest recognition of innovation for newly introduced manufacturing products in 16 categories. The winners were selected by vote in December 2013 by the Plant Engineering readership.
Some of the best known industrial companies were finalists in this year's competition, including Eaton, Atlas Copco, Rockwell, Fluke, Siemens, GE, Schneider, Exair, SKF, Toyota Industrial, Invensys, Honeywell and others.
Mobius' iLearnReliability is asset-reliability-improvement online training for industrial plants that broadly targets everyone from top management to plant-floor operations and maintenance workers. The training modules range from management briefings and "toolbox talks" to very detailed training in reliability program management, condition monitoring and precision maintenance skills.
The Mobius iVibe is an extensive vibration analysis mobile application that assists machine analysts in identifying machine faults from various perspectives. It can help diagnose the most common machine fault conditions as well as obscure conditions such as cavitation, rubbing, eccentric rotating assemblies, resonance, soft foot, improperly installed bearings and drive belt issues.
"The grand and gold award recognition within this field of respected companies demonstrates the great quality and value the industrial marketplace associates with our training products," said Jason Tranter, Mobius Institute's founder and managing director. "We are honored to receive this recognition provided by Plant Engineering and the product of the year competition."
