Benefits

image140

Prevent Scrap

Predict equipment failures to minimize costly product scrap or rework by no longer running to fail

Reduce Mean-Time to Repair (MTTR)

Fault detection and classification allows manufacturing personnel to repair and return your equipment back to production as quickly as possible

Eliminate Unscheduled Downtime

Maintain your manufacturing equipment on your terms without running to fail.

Reduce Equipment Cost of Ownership (COO)

Change consumables based on need rather than some arbitrary calendar date

Turnkey Solution

Our smart sensors are not tool kits or science projects.  Immediately benefit from our knowledge working at manufacturing sites around the world where we have already solved the issues you are facing.
