DYWIDAG Introduces Smart Anchor to Simplify the Lifespan Management of Infrastructure  

 New Smart Anchor technology offers a simple, smart approach to infrastructure management providing data to Infrastructure Intelligence platform 

Unterschleissheim July 27th, DYWIDAG, a global technology group in the construction and mining sectors, introduced today a new Smart Anchor designed to simplify the lifespan management of critical infrastructure, offering a smart approach to new and aging buildings, bridges, and more. Smart Anchor data feeds into DYWIDAG’s cloud-based Infrastructure Intelligence platform, providing 24/7 access to detailed analytics and reporting, so users can easily monitor a structure’s performance remotely in real-time from any connected device.  DYWIDAG’s Smart Anchor’s unique, low-profile force measurement sensor monitors force distribution, inclination, and water level. It is secure and easily manageable from the cloud, built on Microsoft Azure technology, and delivers vital asset health data via plug-and-play sensors.  

Designed with asset owners, designers, and contractors in mind, and using the latest technology in sensor design, Smart Anchor data feeds into DYWIDAG’s cloud-based Infrastructure Intelligence platform. Information is shared via email and/or SMS alerts in real-time, giving infrastructure owners the information needed to focus planning and resources, complete maintenance, prevent major incidents, and minimize business disruption. 

“We currently configure and supply more than 11 million data points each day to asset owners and operators. This year we are upgrading our technology, making it simple to essentially create a digital twin of a structure or building. New and aging infrastructure needs to handle more stress than ever before,” said Matti Kuivalainen, CEO of DYWIDAG. “DYWIDAG Smart Anchors make the invisible visible by delivering vital health data to the right person or software, in the right format at the right time. Asset owners can plan for the future with confidence.” 

With the same strength and function as traditional anchors, but with smarter slopes and foundation, DYWIDAG’s Smart Anchor sets the new standard for anchor applications. It is a smart solution designed to support a more sustainable environment. For additional information on the DYWIDAG Smart Anchor go to https://dywidag.com/smart-anchors
