Condition monitoring services for crisp producer from Schaeffler
Schaeffler UK is providing route-based monitoring services to a UK-based producer of crisps. By analysing the vibration data from a range of plant and equipment at the site, Schaeffler is able to detect any damage to components such as rolling bearings and gears early, therefore reducing costly, unplanned downtime and prolonging the life of the equipment. In addition, Schaeffler provides regular thermographic surveys of electrical panels in order to detect faulty electrical components early.
