Ensuring uptime and safety with PdM
Whether your company manufactures durable or
non-durable goods for automotive, consumer products, industrial machines, fasteners and food & beverage industries–predictive maintenance can reduce downtime and increase productivity.
Critical assets to monitor
Industrial manufacturing presents a unique situation in terms of reliability, primarily due to the nature of production. While a wide range of other industries can run at reduced loads or output after suffering unexpected downtime, nearly all assets in industrial manufacturing can be viewed as critical. All assembly line style of manufacturing equipment is dependent on other equipment up line or down line to be operating during production. Even a small issue can severely cripple or entirely halt production. Therefore, it is highly critical to monitor any asset that has the potential to slow or halt production to reduce or eliminate unplanned downtime.
In any manufacturing operation there should be zero tolerance for unplanned downtime. Specifying the appropriate PdM technologies for each specific industry will greatly reduce or eliminate unplanned downtime, thereby maintaining maximum uptime and profitability.
