Big Data Analytics & Smart Factory
According to PwC report of “Global Data & Analytics Survey 2014: Big Decisions”, almost all industries will increase their use of Big-Data analytics, in the next 5 years, by on average of 20%. Better practices and Industry 4.0 relate optimizations will push the competition barriers high within the global arena in the next 5 years.
With xintrix, prognostic tools analyze product data and predict potential failures in near real time on components such as motors, drives, clutches, and hydraulics controls. By proactively fixing equipment before it breaks and prioritizing which maintenance activities to conduct based on performance and expected failure, smart services reduces costs and minimizes downtime for your customers.
We support you with:
- Monitoring and alerts. A range of sensors and measurement systems monitor operations and performance. This includes inertial navigations systems, camera systems, conveyor chain tensioning systems, water supply sensors and many more. Remote monitoring allows you and your customers to gather data, such as the location and operating status of all equipment, in a fleet of machines, across your companies’ operations. Performance alerts, classified into warnings or fault events, are sent directly to the machine operator, the plant control center, and your companies’ smart support services team. Added value support services for improved company performance.
- Real-time, all the time, control. Operating parameters of machines are controlled remotely. Equipment is customized for each plant´s unique conditions, using an intuitive user interface that allows input of machine configuration and adjust those in real time. Control capabilities reduce the number of proximate operators needed and minimize safety risks. Machine operators monitor and control the equipment via a wired or wireless remote, or use camera feeds to control the equipment from anywhere. The next step in development is to locate the operator in a service center, where other tools and services contribute to diagnosing and optimizing equipment performance.
- System autonomy equals maximum efficiency and safety. Factory equipment can operate autonomously, either individually or as part of the product system. This significantly increases safety and greatly improves productivity. Continuous adjustment reduces equipment failures due to misalignment, improve system performance and reduce the risk of quality issues. Autonomous operations create major opportunities for efficiency and safety.
Collect data from machines operating across national and international networks and compare company processes against benchmarks. Experience data analysis that reveal process deficiencies and recommend corrective actions through operator trainings, system operating parameter adjustments and machine changes.
