Predictive maintenance directly detects the condition and performance of tools during normal operation to reduce the chance of failures. It seeks to keep prices low by decreasing the frequency of maintenance tasks, lowering unplanned breakdowns and removing useless preventive maintenance. By using predictive maintenance, organizations constantly detect and test conditions such as lubrication and corrosion. Techniques for achieving predictive maintenance include infrared testing, acoustic (partial discharge and airborne ultrasonic), vibration analysis, sound level measurements and oil analysis.
Predictive Maintenance solutions retrieve multiple data sources in real time to estimate asset failure so that your organization can ignore costly downtime, reduce maintenance prices and upgrade operational efficiency. Operated by predictive analytics, these solutions monitor even slight anomalies and failure patterns to control the assets and operational processes that are at the high risk of failure or that can result to an enhanced number of faulty products and warranty claims. This early identification of issues aids you to deploy limited maintenance resources more efficiently, maximize tool uptime and increase quality and supply chain processes.
How does predictive maintenance perform work?
Predictive maintenance estimates the condition of a tool by performing periodic or continuous (online) tool condition monitoring. Most predictive maintenance is represented while the tool is operating normally to minimize disruption of everyday operations. This maintenance plan leverages the principles of statistical process control to regulate when maintenance tasks will be needed in the future. Special types of predictive maintenance include:
- Vibration analysis: Vibration sensors can be used to monitor degradation in performance for tools such pumps and motors.
- Infrared: Infrared cameras are usually used to identify uncommon high temperature conditions.
- Acoustic analysis: Acoustic analysis is executed with sonic or ultrasonic tests to detect gas or liquid leaks.
- Oil analysis: Oil analysis regulates asset wear by measuring an asset’s number and size of particles.
The benefits of our Predictive Maintenance include:
- Decreased Maintenance Costs
Each asset has multiple correlated prices, and unexpected failure cost provides remarkably to the total price of ownership of any asset. Therefore, companies can save money by being able to estimate and ignore equipment. Hence, enhancing maintenance planning can result in huge savings. IOT-based predictive maintenance uses historical data from multiple sources including IOT devices and sensors to make perfect predictions about asset health, utilization, and the chance of failure, allowing you to take action based on this information. IOT-based predictive maintenance enables you to systematically schedule the optimal maintenance and inspection routine to ignore unplanned downtime and unnecessary effort. Avoidable prices can be reduced greatly and you can also decrease the amount of time the machinery or tool is down for maintenance.
. Increase Asset Usage
Unexpected downtime due to equipment failure, costs sustain due to production delays, and expensive maintenance and repairs drive down positively. IOT-based predictive maintenance allows more efficient use of existing assets by giving the ability to estimate machine failures and reduce maintenance issues. It can help to find the reasons for delays and aids to set up processes to address these reasons. You can also monitor equipment issues before they become operational, and give early warnings thus improving asset availability, reliability and performance.
- Expand Asset Life
IOT-based predictive maintenance allows you to monitor, maintain, and improve assets for better availability, utilization and performance. You can get better visibility into assets via real-time monitoring, enabling you to estimate machine failure and identify parts that need replacement. You can plan maintenance and repairs, estimate events before they occur, and get real-time notifications that allow you to take quick action, thereby expanding the life of your assets.
