SKF will showcase predictive maintenance tools and services that deliver improved asset efficiency and reliability for operators across industry at Maintec 2015, which takes place on 24–26 March 2015 in Birmingham, England.
SKF experts will be on hand to provide valuable information on the equipment and methodology available to efficiently and cost-effectively monitor and maintain plant assets to extend product life and maximise machine uptime. At the SKF exhibition stand there will also be a selection of SKF’s advanced predictive maintenance tools and services, as well as information on current SKF promotions, such as the SKF Microlog trade-in and reliability and maintenance training courses organised and led by SKF specialists.
Andy Mynett, Platform Deployment Manager at SKF, says: “To successfully extend the life of plant assets it is important to avoid operating a fixed interval approach and instead run a condition based maintenance (CBM) regime to prevent asset failure. At Maintec 2015, we’ll be focusing on the importance of basic, better and best asset care to show customers how to identify hidden faults and potential failures, so that assets can be managed in the most efficient and cost-effective manner.”
Visitors to the stand will find the new SKF Shaft Alignment Tool TKSA 11, which is a useful entry-level tool for maintenance or production engineers to carry out shaft alignment quickly, simply and accurately for motor, fan, pump and compressor applications. Also on show will be the SKF Microlog series, a range of portable, handheld data collectors and analysers, the SKF Wireless MicroVibe, and a selection of other maintenance products.
