Sentient Science (Past Sponsor)
Sentient Science is the first in the machine prognostics market to accurately predict the life cycles of major systems and components like the drivetrain, powertrain and gearbox. DigitalClone Live, offered as a Software as a Service, uses a proprietary materials science-based approach to simulate thousands of test points on high performance computers, running 24/7 on 8,000 microprocessors.
We have three offerings: DigitalClone, which is a computational test lab, that performs an almost unlimited amount of tests and trade off design studies and acts as a complement to the physical test process, ensuring only the best designs move on to the costly industry standard validation phase. Sentient is now also applying its DigitalClone technology to the field of Additive Manufacturing, meeting a critical industry need to predict life expectancy and reliability of components created using additive manufacturing procedures.
Our DigitalClone Live product accurately predicts the failure rates of rotating systems under actual operation conditions over the lifespan of fielded assets. This provides visibility across three levels: short term, what’s happening on your machines now. Mid-term, from 3 months to 5 years, is a rolling forecast into the health of your major systems and components, which allows asset managers to compare supplier offerings to enable Buy on LifeTM. The long-term visibility predicts the failure rates over the lifespan of the asset, which could result in a substantial reduction in warranty and insurance rates.
Finally, our DigitalClone Live for Suppliers gives access to operators needing replacement parts and services.
