- Tractian’s detectors measure four things: vibration, temperature, energy consumption, and a horometer.
- Y Combinator has found the software and hardware package compelling.
- Including Investors such as Soma Capital, Norte Ventures, and angel.
- Tractian’s technology costs $ 90 for the sensors And software, It is an additional $ 60 per month.
TRACTIAN is a platform that analyzes tremor and temperature data collected by our sensors to reduce unplanned downtime inside industries. It was launched after noticing that Factories in Brazil aren’t equipped with Wi-Fi or gateways or other networking technologies that the newest solutions from companies like Siemens or Schneider Electric require. Integrations with existing enterprise resource planning software from companies like SAP.
Igor Marinelli and Gabriel Lameirinhas Develop Tractian for monitoring tools for industries.
Igor Marinelli and Gabriel Lameirinhas grew up around manufacturing plants. Marinelli’s father worked for International Paper in a plant outside of São Paulo. Lameirinhas’s father worked in a cement plant. Friends from their days at Uthe the university of São Paulo, Lameirinhas, and Marinelli kept in touch as Marinelli pursued a career in the U.S. as an entrepreneur. They reconnected in Brazil after the collapse of Marinelli’s attempt to launch a predictive chronic health condition service called BlueAI.
Throughout their lives, the two friends had heard their parents complain about the sorry state of maintenance and monitoring of the heavy equipment that their factories depended on to stay up and running. So the two friends decided to do something about it and set about to develop the technology that would become Tractian.
Y Combinator approves Tractian equipment monitoring tech.
Tractian’s sensors measure four things: vibration, temperature, energy consumption, and a horometer to measure how long a machine has been up and running. The company has also developed software that can analyze the data coming off of the sensors to predict when a machine might need maintenance.
Y Combinator found the software and hardware package compelling. Investors like Soma Capital, Norte Ventures found the same. Angel investors including Alan Rutledge and Immad Akhund are also backing the company. Traction’s tech costs $90 for the sensors and the analysis and software is another $60 per month, per sensor. Marinelli claims that the service can pay for itself in less than two months. The company has signed up AB InBev as an initial customer and has roughly 30 buyers using its sensors
