Aru and her team are also focused on the digital transformation of Waygate Technologies, spearheading the company's evolution into a Digital Inspection Solutions provider; taking customers from inspections to insights; and from insights to innovations through a start-up business approach.
Waygate Technologies is part of Digital Solutions, a multi-billion dollar business of Baker Hughes, with offices and manufacturing facilities in the Americas, Europe, Middle East and Asia. With 120+ years of combined experience, they 'bring peace of mind to the world's infrastructure' by delivering customer outcomes through intelligent, connected technologies to sense, monitor, control and inspect.
In her talk on Digital Triplets, Anbarasu asks: "We pride ourselves as being the market leaders in the industrial inspection space. We come from a legacy that is more than a century old. We have the people who actually commercialised the first ultrasound for industrial use - the Krautkrämer brothers - is a major part of what we do. Same with Seiffert with X-Rays and industrialising that part," she said.
"And with that, one of the big aspects of this is inspection and the data we get from it."
Anbarasu reveals in her keynote speech that while no-one may want inspections, they produce high return on investment. She explains how Digital Triplets are the next next phase beyond Digital Twins and produce better lifetime value.
