A Mechanical Healthcare PlanMotor Operation Gets Big Boost from Smart Technology (Here’s How to Take Advantage).
By Matthew Jaster, Senior Editor
Let's say 100 motors are running in a mining, oil and gas, or metal refinement operation. These facilities are probably in the middle of nowhere; not exactly ideal conditions to have a full-time engineer on-site to make sure the mechanical assets are running properly 24/7. In the past, manufacturers had little choice but to be reactive when motor loss occurred or a mechanical system was in need of some troubleshooting for an application like this. From a cost and/or safety perspective, this was typically bad for business.
What's the total cost of drivetrain failure?
DAMAGE. FRUSTRATION. DOWNTIME. HEADACHES. If you're relying on providers who can only service ONE drivetrain component, failures cost you more time — and more money. Protect your entire drivetrain with complete service coverage from Philadelphia Gear & Timken Power Systems. Get 24/7 nationwide coverage for any part.
Forest City Gear Takes a Closer Look
Forest City Gear uses an EVO Cam advanced full-HD digital microscope for faster visual inspection of precision parts. As compared to the traditional stereoscopes typically used for visual parts inspection, the EVO Cam offers Forest City Gear a much faster and more accurate way to detect for burrs, tears and other surface finish anomalies that might exist in workpieces after machining.
High Performance Spiral Bevel Gearboxes
With more models, sizes, and ratios, DieQua's spiral bevel gearboxes offer precision, performance and durability far above standard products. They're ideal for applications requiring high speed, precise motion control, high torque, or heavy shocks. Several configurations, options, and customized solutions provide unmatched design versatility.
