Why Predictive Maintenance is required in Glass industry?

  • The glass fabrication equipments are complex to operate and maintain and stocking spare parts may not be possible.
  • Some machine failure is inevitable but predicting the failure can save spares, ensure safety at work and prevent production loss.
  • A routine and scheduled machine maintenance could be a challenge, especially when fabricators want machines operating as much as possible to keep up with workload. Frequently glass is cut without the operator being up to date with regards to defects of pieces of the glass type as he is currently processing
  • A small plant may have limited number of machinery. It is obvious that all the equipment are available for production 24 X 7.
  • Sometimes, equipment is customized to satisfy the unique and specialized need, which in turn, modifies the standard maintenance requirements.
  • Damaged and broken pieces cannot be avoided completely in glass processing, even if working carefully can help a bit in this respect.
  • In many larger plants, reporting of defects takes too long.

All the equipment in the glass industry are powered by motors.

Testimonials

We worked carefully with all our equipment that helped us for our living. We maintained them as and when required but still faced production losses and high downtime. Thank you Infinite Uptime for installing the IDE, to monitor gearboxes, motors, bearings and other critical mechanical rotating parts at real-time. We are so happy, we could save our maintenance cost, spares, wear and tear, and the million dollar life of the operator.

Thanks to Infinite Uptime for providing insights into our critical equipment. The plug and play real time monitoring IOT 4.0 solution, avoided unexpected breakdowns and detected large savings capabilities. We are so happy, we could save our maintenance cost, spares, wear and tear, and the million dollar life of the operator.

Mr. Bhide / Mokashi, - Bharat Forge

We installed the IDE on our helical gearbox to get a deeper understanding of the root causes of its failures and prevented them becoming catastrophic. Outstanding product and people make Infinite Uptime an awesome part of the predictive maintenance.

Mr. Shashikant Bhujbal - Tata Metaliks

Thank You very much to everyone for installing the IU devices, integrating them with PLC in optimal time. We are now able to have an insight into tool life monitoring and can schedule predictive maintenance for the machines.
We look forward to continue work with you. We appreciate your dedicated time and efforts invested to achieve our goals.
