In the modern era, what technology exists to help with your predictive maintenance? There are a lot of universally applied technologies, but specific operations will require specific pieces of predictive maintenance technology. For example, in the case of any operation that utilizes rotating machinery, vibration analysis will give you a good idea of what’s going on under the hood. A handheld vibration analysis tool will compare the machine’s current vibrations to the vibrations measured during its optimal performance. Any amount of deviation can be a result of imbalance, loose components, motor failure, misalignment, or shafts that have lost their shape. After this analysis is completed, organizations can better treat their equipment with certainty rather than basing their maintenance efforts in assumption. This ensures that the equipment is receiving its most optimal care and can return to work with little to no downtime. For more information on the ways in which predictive maintenance technology has improved countless organizations’ maintenance efforts, be sure to spend some time reading on to the infographic featured alongside this post.
