There is no production process that can achieve optimum productivity without taking care of a good maintenance programme, but probably this information isn’t new for you. Since industrial maintenance became popular in the 20th century, most production lines and factories have been designing and implementing maintenance actions for their processes. Nevertheless, industrial maintenance is a culture of its own, that not only consists of repairing machines, but implies that the whole production team (technicians, engineers, leaders, etc.) is trained in the continuous improvement of the maintenance strategy in order to reduce costs, eliminate waste and build a more efficient process. If you’re willing to know which style suits you best, or how you can improve your programme, take a look at our solutions for industrial maintenance, and keep your production going.

Reliability based maintenance
When the failure already happened: The most traditional way of performing maintenance actions is by fixing incidents. The basis of corrective maintenance consists of identifying and replacing parts that are compromising the production due to some kind of failure.
Check two specified items simultaneously and take advantage of the benefits of IO-link for reliable and fast monitoring.
Remove static from your production line to avoid problems in final product quality, disruptions and other issues derived from static charges.
Centralise the monitoring of any flow, temperature or pressure sensor, as long as it consumes less than 50 mA and has 1-5 VDC output.
Spot the pad easily during contamination inspections thanks to its blue colour.
Facilitate visual confirmation of process parameters and enable the maintenance control of filters.
One step ahead the failure: Why wait for a stoppage or failure before taking action? Preventive maintenance can help solve these issues, always trying to avoid unnecessary costs.
Improve the productivity of your installation by monitoring your product cycles.
Determine maintenance periods and identify parts needing maintenance thanks to the self-diagnosis functions. Wireless version available, ideal for obtaining noise-resistant and reliable communication.
Be aware of the machine’s leakage at all times to reduce unplanned stoppages and connect it to air combination units to achieve an all-in-one solution.
Pre-set certain values for the regulation of your actuators and make quick, visual checks thanks to the indicator below the knob.
Enable optimal vacuum performance and process quality, together with easy installation and flexible mounting.
When need arises: This popular term consists on setting a strategy to monitor the actual condition of equipment with the aim of predicting a failure before it occurs.
With this combination of regulator, wireless hub, and residual pressure relief valve, you can monitor the temperature, pressure and flow of your system and program shut-off times and standby periods to save energy during low-activity times.
Monitor the variables of your fluid flow to define optimum working ranges and plan maintenance actions according to the measurements.
Obtain continuous information on cylinder status to identify the actuator position at any time.
Control your process temperature and monitor the parameters with the advanced control functions that allow self-diagnosis, check and display, alarm codes, communication functions and much more.
Obtain an automatic regulation of pressure/vacuum, ensuring consistent product quality thanks to a step-less control of air pressure proportional to an electrical signal.
Set the actuator’s step data and parameters directly from the master side and eliminate the need for troublesome resetting when changing over the controller. Use the IO-link technology for fast data gathering.
Design from the origin: Looking for the reduction of unnecessary maintenance costs is based on FMEA and is focused on the different failures that could occur and the consequences these could bring.
