Solutions for predictive condition monitoring
Trendion condition monitoring solutions enable you to be proactive – instead of just reacting to events. Our objective is to keep your machines running with high availability and safe use. Our customers are able to maintain high and predictable operations – partially thanks to our solutions.
Trendion customers have sought help in transitioning towards predictive condition monitoring. Trendion helps its customers in every step of the way from planning to implementing the transition to proactive way of operation. Our customers’ path to predictive condition monitoring is always unique – and thus implementation requires deep customer understanding.
Trendion guided transition towards predictive condition monitoring starts with a current state review. Transition plans and implementation will be based on the current state review. We have listed a few examples of industries and operating environments below, in which we have helped our customers.
Unexpected machine and equipment breakdowns especially in continuous industrial production cause significant financial and production losses. Trendion continuous remote monitoring combined with certified professionals’ analysis capabilities allow customers to look ahead with peace of mind. Continuous and predictive condition monitoring is a starting point in transitioning from a reactive operational model towards proactive production.
In a typical implementation at first the condition monitoring plan is examined and updated or if one doesn’t exist, the plan will be generated in cooperation with the customer representatives. Based on customer’s condition monitoring plan or a separate critical analysis to be made, crucial machines of a factory or production line will be connected into Trendion’s remote monitoring service. From this point onwards, Trendion will be able to provide insights on impending malfunctions, insufficient lubrication or unfavourable operation point before significant damages occur. Forewarnings will also allow customers to plan and schedule any necessary maintenance actions in an orderly fashion.
We are happy to tell you more and share, how we are helping our customers SSAB Oyj and Knauf Oy in keeping their daily production operations running smoothly.
