Why Predictive Maintenance?
Most industrial equipment does not suddenly break down 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 condition monitoring technologies in real-time, including vibration analysis and oil analysis. This allows your maintenance team time to plan, schedule, and make repairs before you encounter equipment failures and unplanned downtime. With artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) technology, data can be gathered and analyzed with greater efficiency.
