Asset management can be challenging and time-consuming, especially when you have hundreds of assets, of differing types, across multiple sites and/or countries. The MOVUS team understands the struggle and have been working hard to deliver a solution.
The adoption of smart monitoring technology in operation has reduced the stress for many water utility operators. Drives and motors in the industry are often old and outdated but are considered too expensive to replace, or put low on the priority list. Simply installing a smart sensor to continuously monitor machine condition would lead to greater efficiency and significant maintenance cost savings.
In the era of Industry 4.0, integration potential is a top priority for organisations looking to make the most of their data and technology stack. In this article, we briefly discuss what integration means in the industry 4.0 context and how manufacturers can become most efficient.
In this article, we discuss how a ‘predictive maintenance’ approach can increase resilience for businesses, and how it stacks up in three important areas of the greater machine health discussion: remote management, financial cost, and early downtime prevention.
Don’t let a lack of information hold you or your equipment back.
We’ve talked previously about how predictive maintenance is changing the game for many businesses. Smart sensors enabling the improvement of equipment efficiency and availability (you can read the full article here). This year we’ve seen a significant uptake from business looking to change their maintenance processes. They want to minimise reliance on physical inspection and routine – the proactive approach is the one for the future. It makes sense, with COVID making it extremely hard to have staff on-site to keep track of equipment health, and completely changing our concept of ‘normal’ staffing levels / schedules.
We’re just over two months into 2020 and it seems the world is changing around us – schools, universities and offices are closing, and remote work is becoming the new norm. Many of us operate in critical industries, like food, water, sewerage treatment and energy. MOVUS FitMachine is here to remotely monitor these and other industries during these challenging times. Join me as we review some of the latest features we’ve shipped to all customers in January and February.
In manufacturing, unplanned downtime is a profit and reputation killer, and also significantly impacts a manufacturers ability to hit OEE targets (as MOVUS discussed with OEE expert Clive Moore earlier this year). This new case study from Australian manufacturer Matrix Polymers highlights the value of continuous condition monitoring.
MOVUS is pleased to advise that FitMachine EX is now certified for use in Queensland underground coal mines! This is an important extension of our existing intrinsically safe certification. Details of the new certification can be found here.
