Ensuring the well-being of machines is something that all industries want to focus on to avoid unnecessary production disruptions. There are different approaches and maintenance strategies, and in this post, we at DAZOQ want to advocate for predictive maintenance, something we assist you with through our connected energy meters that provide energy data as a basis.
Traditional machine maintenance can be expensive, time-consuming, and inefficient. Waiting for a machine to break down before repairing it can lead to production stoppages, lost revenue, and high repair costs. With our system and connected energy meters, we can work with predictive maintenance.
How to improve machine performance to save money and energy in the industry
Predictive maintenance is a method where machine performance is continuously monitored to detect potential issues before they cause major problems. With energy data as a basis, one can get an indication when a machine may need maintenance or repair, reducing the risk of unplanned downtime. Of course, preventive maintenance works with a predetermined schedule or after a certain number of operating hours. However, it is not a reliable method based on relevant data, so let us explain some of the benefits of predictive maintenance.
Benefits with predictive maintenance
Predictive maintenance has several advantages compared to traditional reactive maintenance methodology. Here are some of the main benefits:
- Reduces downtime: By detecting potential issues in advance, maintenance work can be planned appropriately to avoid unplanned downtime.
- Improves machine performance: By monitoring machine performance and detecting potential issues in a timely manner, preventive measures can be taken to improve machine performance and extend its lifespan.
- Reduce maintenance costs:By planning maintenance in advance, the need for costly emergency repairs can be reduced, thereby reducing maintenance costs.
- Increases safety: By anticipating potential issues, dangerous components can be removed before they cause harm to machinery or personnel.
