Visionary capabilities: predictive maintenance from Banner

Once machines start to vibrate, production can stall or come to a complete standstill and the costs resulting from downtime can take on astronomical proportions. Predictive maintenance using a solution from Banner will ensure that things can never get that far. The reason for this is that the system is self-learning and can identify faults, before they occur.

Excessive vibrations caused by defective bearings, such as special bearings or cross roller bearings, affect the operation of motors, drive systems or ventilation systems and, in the worst-case scenario, can cause massive damage. In order to ensure safe operation, temperature and vibrations need to be permanently monitored. Predictive Maintenance and Condition Monitoring, the smart monitoring system from Banner, is used for that precise purpose. Preventative maintenance prevents plant downtime and enables maintenance work to be scheduled in a targeted way.

Machine learning for preventative system protection

The predictive maintenance solution from Banner makes use of sensors to record vibrations and temperature changes in rotating parts within your plant and delivers the data via wireless networks. This means that you will be able to view the current functional capability status of your machinery at all times. The benefits of Banner’s system are not limited to monitoring alone. It is actually self-learning. It continually reads the data regarding the current status of the part of the plant being monitored; it automatically defines the conditions and sets threshold values for the transmission of warning and alert messages. You will therefore know in advance and with certainty at what point in time the next maintenance intervention needs to be carried out on the part of the machine concerned. Automated monitoring that incorporates a machine-learning component makes manual calculations a thing of the past and prevents operations being interrupted due to incorrect data inputs.

Ready to operate in just a short time and without any need for programming

Incorporating a predictive maintenance solution and installing the vibration and temperature sensors in your plant are extremely simple tasks and do not require any specific construction changes. Programming is also not required: In just a few simple steps, you can connect the monitoring box and link the nodes using a touch screen. You then need to install the sensors and data capture can begin.

For proactive plant constructors, Bachofen is the right company to contact in connection with predictive maintenance using the Wireless Vibration and Temperature Monitoring Solution Kit from Banner. After all, competent advice and technical support will help you ensure a future-proof solution.
