Condition monitoring on the Path to Industry 4.0
Mitsubishi HiTec Paper Europe produces special papers, which are coated using modern methods and used around the world, at its paper factories in Bielefeld and Flensburg. One of SM 3's fans in Bielefeld failed due to imbalance that was not detected in time causing significant damage to both the bearing support and additional components. In order to identify potential damage at an early stage and prevent unplanned and costly downtimes, the paper producer needed a solution that would allow them to switch from time-based to condition-based maintenance.
