Predictive Maintenance Overview
Most industrial equipment does not suddenly breakdown and stop working. The truth is equipment breaks down gradually, over a period of weeks or months. Furthermore, it gives off numerous warning signals along the way.
These early warning signs, such as slight changes in temperature, vibration, or sound, can be detected by predictive (PdM) technologies. PdM gives you time to plan, schedule, and make repairs before the equipment fails.
With a properly engineered PdM program, you can replace up to 30% of your Preventive Maintenance (PM) tasks. Find out more about right-sizing your PM program with the guide: “Are You Doing Too Much PM? 16 Ways to Save Time and Money on Preventive Maintenance”.
