In an era of economic turmoil, businesses will need to innovate and keep cost of maintenance low. Asset location information and monitoring procedures are crucial for any industrial plants. This problem intensifies if the machines are old and legacy ones. Mechanical problems can start from nowhere, and go completely unnoticed leading to a production downtime. Since it is very difficult to keep check of such machines manually, monitoring these machines for any anomalies becomes important. On such important aspect of repair & preventive maintenance is to track locations moved, temperature, humidity, pressure and G-force of equipment, apart from the time spent in each location to understand utilisation.
Asset location based monitoring
So how do we track location ? And what all we can interpret from the collected data? Anomaly detection data can help the users correlate to various health issues of the equipment. Sometimes it can help us track specific issues of equipment.
The prospect has a large bread manufacturing unit, and they wanted to track over heating and humidity in their motors. From our onsite inspection, we found out that the overheating varied on equipments; some was due to the bearing defect, gear mesh damage and imbalance in the drive shaft. In some cases it was due to the loosened body parts such as nuts, bolts and clamps.
Indoor asset location & monitoring solutions
The production floor will be filled with all kinds of machines, ranging from agitators, compressors, extruders, flywheels to generator sets. Ripples IOT industrial monitoring solutions can be applied to any machines be it old, intermediate or new. Our visualization and anomaly detection instances would be on constant look out for defects and variations from the existing system vibration signature.
Easily deployable wireless mesh sensors
Our indoor location tracking and monitoring solutions can be attached to any machines easily and can form a mesh network of its own for data collection. It is no rocket science that proper monitoring can increase the life expectancy of the machines by many folds, including that of improved preventive maintenance and scheduled repairs.
