By pinpointing problem areas and hot spots long before they cause critical shutdown, Predictive Maintenance (PdM) also increases productivity:
TESTIMONIAL: In the beginning, we had little to no predictive technologies in place. It was a regular occurrence to not make it through a week without sending a production line home due to critical equipment being down. ATS assisted in establishing a vibration analysis program with data collected internally and analyzed by ATS. ATS then introduced us to IR technologies and started collecting and analyzing photos of our critical systems. With these programs in
LOWER MAINTENANCE COSTS
Cost savings is one of the major motivations behind most Predictive Maintenance (PdM) Programs:
One manufacturer of heavy machinery reduced its repair expenses by $1.7 million with Predictive Maintenance.
Current estimates suggest that the average plant not currently using vibration analysis to monitor equipment can reduce its maintenance budget by 20% with PdM. This can save your company thousands-or even hundreds of thousands-of dollars each year.
A major supplier to the U.S. government’s Defense and Aerospace Program avoided more than $1 million in downtime by doing an infrared thermography scan of its electrical distribution system.
Remember when diagnosing a machine’s condition required nothing more than a screwdriver and a good ear? Well, technology has come a long way.
These days, a host of high-tech tools make it possible to accurately determine the condition of equipment as it operates. This information can then be used to make precise maintenance decisions. The results are improved productivity, lowered maintenance costs, and extended machinery life.
THE BENEFITS OF OUTSOURCING PDM
- No up-front capital required.
- Pay as you go with monthly Purchase Orders.
- You don’t have to worry about upgrades and software changes to PdM equipment-we take care of everything.
- Recognized leaders in Predictive Maintenance bring 230 years of combined expertise to your worksite.
- No vacations, no
lay-offs, no transfers, bumping to other jobs, or light-duty restrictions.
- You get all of the service-none of the hassles.
Like most industrial technologies, Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) units have grown increasingly affordable over the past few years and have become common in many facilities to better control processes. While there are many advantages to implementing VFDs on existing...
Every band relies on its bassline—that low, thumping sound that helps establish the rhythm, tempo and signature sound of a song. Your predictive maintenance (PdM) program should rely on a baseline, too—especially in the area of vibration analysis. Without a baseline,...
Hey, there! Bob here. You know, the guy from the comics? The 'What's with Bob?' guy? You've heard a lot from my co-workers, and I thought it was time I spoke for myself. I mean, they're great and all, even though they do eavesdrop a lot. But I thought you might like...
Bob got his bounce back. Sounds like Bob made a compelling case to management. Advanced Technology Solutions, Inc. is back on the job helping him get the most from his company's Predictive Maintenance Program. The newfangled system management put in place was only...
Why is Bob pulling his hair out? "Newfangled" isn't necessarily better. What Bob's coworkers don't know is that management's move to an online Predictive Maintenance Program means the collected data is overwhelming--and possibly unreliable. Bob needs to call his...
