Digital Service for the monitoring of bearings in electric motors, pumps, fans and entire drivetrains
- Avoidance of unplanned downtimes
- Reduction of maintenance costs
- Transparency on the status of the drivetrain
- Easy data management
Auxiliary units such as motors, fans and pumps keep production plants running. However, an unplanned failure of these units can quickly shut down an entire production line. This can incur high costs and delivery dates can be at risk. Monitoring the aggregates can prevent unplanned failures. However, manual monitoring is time-consuming and expensive. The ConditionAnalyzer can be used to automatically monitor a large number of aggregates. On top of this the ConditionAnalyzer makes it possible to easily and quickly access Schaeffler's expert know-how digitally.
With the help of the output from the ConditionAnalyzer you avoid unplanned downtime and maximize the availability of your assets.
Compelling reasons for ConditionAnalyzer
The ConditionAnalyzer automatically analyzes your vibration data and makes the condition of your application transparent.
With the help of the results from the ConditionAnalyzer, you will avoid unplanned downtime and maximize the availability of your assets.
The ConditionAnalyzer is available via a standardized interface on the Internet. ConditionAnalyzer is easy to integrate into your Condition Monitoring System and can be used immediately.
The ConditionAnalyzer is an efficient and scalable algorithm capable of processing the rapidly growing data volumes of Industry 4.0.
The Dutch industrial service company SPIT Electrical Mechanics relies on Schaeffler’s expertise when it comes to the maintenance of its customers’ machines. Thanks to predictive maintenance using the SmartCheck condition monitoring system, the company is transitioning from regular offline measurements to continuous online measurements, thereby reducing outlay and costs.
With the ConditionAnalyzer, Schaeffler combines the expertise of its engineers in the design and manufacture of bearings with its many years of experience in interpreting vibration data and maintaining its own plants in one practical tool.
With this Schaeffler expertise, the ConditionAnalyzer can reliably identify the bearing condition.
For this, it does not require any configuration, limiting values or alarm thresholds. The ConditionAnalyzer delivers accurate results from the first second.
The ConditionAnalyzer uses vibration data from sensors for this purpose. These are automatically analyzed and processed.
The Schaeffler Service does not provide complex data, but rather a simple recommendation for action - consisting of three features:
- Statement about the existence and nature of the damage: Is the damage in the rolling elements, the inner or the outer ring?
- Damage Progress Statement: Starting, Advanced, or Critical?
- Statement on forecast accuracy
In addition, the ConditionAnalyzer calculates some common characteristics such as, for example, imbalance or alignment errors.
From this information it can be quickly deduced whether a bearing can continue to operate or whether, in the event of damage, the bearing can be exchanged at a next maintenance interval or a change must be carried out immediately.
If it is uncertain whether a bearing needs to be changed, a Schaeffler expert can be contacted directly and a detailed analysis can be commissioned. The expert looks at all the data in detail and provides a recommendation.
The ConditionAnalyzer ensures full transparency of the auxiliary units. This reduces the effort and costs for maintenance. And the most important thing: Unplanned downtimes can be avoided.
The digital service can be easily integrated into an existing IoT platform or condition monitoring system via a REST API interface.
