Looking to improve the reliability, productivity and profitability of your manufacturing operations? In this informative white paper, learn how comprehensive condition monitoring can work economically using cutting-edge technologies – and how this can be accomplished with such ease that your entire maintenance team can implement this solution without possessing any prior specialized knowledge.
Regal Rexnord Corporation has announced the new Perceptiv Sentry S2100 platform for cost effective wireless vibration and temperature monitoring. Users, primarily in light duty applications, will benefit from early detection of asset problems for predictive maintenance, resulting in increased productivity and efficiency as well as reduced downtime and maintenance costs.
Downtime, downtime, downtime. When it's
planned, it's bearable. When it's not, it's not. To maintain machinery, planned downtime is necessary.
To fix broken equipment, unplanned downtime is excruciating,
especially when your factory is running closer and closer
to full capacity.
Chain and sprocket drives of one form or another have been driving machines and
conveying materials for over a thousand years. The chain manufacturing industry has developed numerous types and sizes of drive chains. Although it is a mature form of power transmission, there are still many industrial applications for which drive chain is suited. It is economical, resistant to shock loads, easy to install, has the ability to transmit high torque, operates in hostile environments, and is efficient. Chain and sprocket drives are highly engineered and manufactured within close tolerances.
Health monitoring or condition monitoring has been used for many years on machines and in plants where the cost of an outage is high. It allows failures to be anticipated and maintenance or repairs to be
scheduled for the least loss of production, as well as avoiding unnecessary periodic maintenance.
As manufacturers continually search for ways to cut costs and increase ROI, machine monitoring and predictive maintenance (PdM) solutions are an increasingly cost-effective way for plants and factories to help reduce process downtime.
