Condition Monitoring/Predictive Maintenance

Condition monitoring for bearings improves grinding process

NSK CMS SAM 0425 Korr RZAs part of its AIP+ (Added Value Programme), NSK’s Condition Monitoring Service (CMS) is a method to determine the health of machine components such as bearings while the machine remains operating. Indeed, data from the process can also be used to help determine (or at least narrow down) the causes of form errors when producing parts on grinding machines.

Fluke makes predictive maintenance simple, safe and fast through wireless condition monitoring solutions

ems april 1 19 2By using the capacity of cloud-based software to combine the real-time and historical data from Fluke Connect™-enabled tools and sensors, Fluke now enables maintenance engineers and managers to monitor a comprehensive picture of equipment health throughout the facility. The introduction of condition monitoring products that wirelessly transmit data from the field, combined with Fluke Connect Condition Monitoring (FCCM) software, has enabled safe, cost-effective maintenance programs. Maintenance teams can remotely detect potential equipment failures and remedy them before they cause costly downtime. Predictive maintenance is now not only simplified, but it is safer and faster.
