Using the vacuum pump as an example, Frank Steinlehner explains the positive effects of condition-based maintenance on the maintenance for the weigh price labeling system: “The performance of this component is important in order to properly label packages and to deliver them to the market. We check the pressure values of the vacuum pump with the condition-based monitoring.
If it loses its vacuum power, it is no longer capable of properly drawing in the price label. If the current performance drops below the critical threshold value, the monitoring system triggers an alert. The data and the alert are sent to the service team via Bizerba cloud directly. This allows it to schedule a pump replacement for the next scheduled maintenance call. This too contributes to process optimization.
For the customer, this means: There are no costs to the customer due to an outage of the solution and poorly labeled products that are no longer marketable. Plus, the customer can save costs that would have been incurred had another unscheduled on-site call for a service technician been required, such as for travel, expenses, etc.”
