Predictive Maintenance in production plants
Several hidden problems affect industrial companies: problems concerning their equipment cause both operational and economical inconveniences. Unplanned downtime costs industrial manufacturers an estimated $50 billion annually, while equipment failure is the cause of 42 percent of this unplanned downtime. To solve this, a proactive approach is needed: maintaining the equipment has become a crucial activity, since low-performance equipment causes damage to the entire company. Intellico has already completed applications in this field, and several benefits has been already reached.
Furthermore, it’s important to understand what the difference is between reactive, preventive, and predictive maintenance:
- Reactive Maintenance always happens after a situation has occurred
- Preventive Maintenance happens at times that are pre-set, often long in advance.
Predictive Maintenance, on the other hand, is a proactive maintenance strategy that analyses data and suggests production, scheduling, and maintenance changes to prevent failures and avoid machine downtime in the future.
In Predictive Maintenance, historical machine and process data is transformed into information that then forms the basis for analyising and improving maintenance processes. Predictive maintenance happens in real time, exactly when and where it’s needed.
