Low Or No Maintenance Industrial Machinery
When considering the ways in which maintenance can be improved across manufacturing operations, most would assume that more maintenance is better than less. Unfortunately, the inverse is actually true. Excess maintenance means excess downtime and increased costs. Which means that reduced amounts of maintenance, assuming the maintenance done is meaningful, is actually more effective. This requires a predictive maintenance strategy, which requires predictive maintenance technology. Predictive maintenance technology is capable of analyzing internal qualities of machinery to determine what maintenance is necessary and when it’s necessary. For example, temperature is a great way to tell if your machine is running correctly. Equipment will start to heat up as circuits malfunction, parts fail and create more friction, or safeties are failing. By using infrared technology, you can create a real-time heat map of the equipment that’s monitored around the clock. As temperature values get too high, you can perform predictive maintenance to prevent any machine failure. This is just one example of the ways that predictive maintenance and its technologies are making an impact on the manufacturing industry at large. To learn more about these technologies, take a moment to read on to the resource highlighted alongside this post for more valuable predictive maintenance information.
