What is Predictive maintenance and precision maintenance?

Predictive maintenance (yellow area on the diagram) is performed using sensors to understand the state of wear level of electromechanical equipment, while precision maintenance (green area on the diagram) involves acting to eliminate the causes of failures.

For example, it is worth running precision lubrication (7 on the diagram) on bearings (using ultrasound or vibration analysis) to avoid over-lubrication which will also soon damage the bearings.

What are the integrated systems?

We offer:

What sensors / technologies do you apply?

What diagnostic benefits can I get?

The areas of application covered are summarized:

Is diagnostic maintenance involved in energy saving and hygiene and safety issues?

Is there anything more in your approach than we know to date?

Are you trading or producing (or both)?

What software do you use?

What analysis capabilities are offered?

The diagnostic techniques used on the platform are based for standardization and interoperability purposes on international standards and open good practices. That is exactly what most of the diagnostic maintenance community uses. Their combination may cover all your needs.

We are looking for a specific diagnostic technique. Can you help us?

In case there is a need to support a particular technique that you wish to apply, we can integrate it.

We have measuring devices (vibration pen, low-end ultrasound devices, tachometer, thermometers etc.) with optical output, we write data on paper and pass it in a spreadsheet. What can we do?

Use the devices you have. In conjunction with our proposed approach (instructions will be included on how to perform the measurements) in order to insert the measurements where they are performed. Once the smartphone is on a wireless network, all measurements are automatically available for monitoring on the platform.

We have invested in branded analysis equipment (vibration analyzer, hi-end ultrasound device, thermal camera etc.). What is the point in moving forward with the proposed approach?

The proposed approach has been developed based on trends that appear to dominate in the coming years, it is based on simplicity, speed, ease of use and integration of many diagnostic technologies into a single operating environment. You can set up a diagnostic maintenance plan as described above and use the equipment you already have for troubleshooting or even repairing difficult cases.

What opportunities are there for cooperating?

What about network / data security?

We are interested in the security of your network. Regarding the portable systems, the smartphone used for the measurements and their synchronization are not personal. They are part of the system. Those devices are from branded manufacturers, with the latest security updates and contains only our own software or affiliate tested software. This ensures that the device does not pose a risk to the rest of the network. Similar protocols are followed with our permanently installed systems. Their operating system contains the latest security updates and communicates only with our or your partner server (CMMS, ERP) when required. Upon request we can install a wireless network for application-only use or even implement a GSM solution.

Practically how can we see the application of the possibilities provided?

We visit you and show you all the possibilities in your equipment. Alternatively, we have designed a demonstration room in our facilities which includes a series of fixed assets (pumps, fans, compressors, electrical equipment, pneumatic system, steam boiler / steam traps) to enable realistic evaluation.
