One of the most common concerns for any business is unscheduled downtime and everything coming to a halt from one day to the next, which can lead to not only frustration but also a significant gap in the company’s finances. But what’s worse than the downtime itself is discovering later that it could have been avoided.
All organizations require maintenance systems. It can improve not only the efficiency of machines but also the productivity of employees. In this article, we will learn about the WrxFlo Machine Maintenance solution and what the benefits of maintenance solutions are!
What is the WrxFlo Machine Maintenance Solution?
The WrxFlo Machine Maintenance Solution is a system that was created for manufacturers who use high-value assets such as CNC machines, Robotics, that want to monitor the performance of the asset in real-time to get the best results.
The main function of the WrxFlo Machine Maintenance solution is to track and monitor the performance of machines to ensure they continue to be in working order and that the machines are producing to the highest level possible. These are usually high-value assets, so the business wants to maximise output.
Benefits of the WrxFlo Machine Maintenance Solution
1. Improved Work Order Management
The WrxFlo Machine Maintenance Solution is effective at tracking maintenance, and whenever a machine is discovered that requires attention, proactive maintenance is scheduled. Furthermore, machine performance is improved by replacing old and worn-down parts and changing engine oil and air filter on a regular basis.
As a result, while performing maintenance, the maintenance team can update the status of each work order, and the maintenance manager can immediately inform top management. Furthermore, calibration management is performed when assets are inspected, and alignment is required.
2. Valuable insights
Using the WrxFlo Machine Maintenance Solution provides valuable insights into the real-time status of your machines and production performance in order to make more informed decisions. The collected data will be automatically translated into high-level charts and tables that can be used to enhance your workflows.
3. Predictive maintenance
The WrxFlo Machine Maintenance Solution will use the data it collects about maintenance, repairs, and inventory usage to predict when maintenance works should occur. Data-driven manufacturers prefer this practice because it alerts maintenance teams to potential problems before they occur. As a result, there is less unplanned downtime and maintenance that addresses actual issues rather than simply taking place on a set schedule, whether or not it is required.
Features of the WrxFlo Machine Maintenance Solution
Some of the features of the WrxFlo Machine Maintenance Software include:
- Monitors the performance and automatically alerts the team if any issues arise
- An easy configuration set-up that primes the system
- Calibration of the system
- Preventive maintenance
- Produces overall availability of the machine
WrxFlo Machine Maintenance Solution capabilities
The WrxFlo Machine Maintenance Solution can do a lot to improve the efficiency of your machines. Our solution improves machine availability by 30 to 40% and maximises your High-Value Asset with monitoring and measuring. It also provides automatic Alerts/Alarms for non-performance issues– calibration, maintenance etc. and allows you to view analytics and performance in real-time – as the information comes directly from the machine.
Examples of how the WrxFlo Machine Maintenance Solution has been used
With relation to one of our manufacturing clients, WrxFlo were asked to connect to the machines on the line and produce reports in order to monitor the performance and automatically alert the team if any issues arose, and if the machines needed to be calibrated or on a maintenance schedule.
The customer wanted to know the status of the overall availability of the machine, specifically, “is the machine running or not” or “how much of the day or shift was the machine running” and to trend the hours, days, weeks, months, quarters, and years that the machines were running, so they could do analysis.
WrxFlo implemented the Machine Maintenance solution. WrxFlo connected to the robotics system to view the information that the robotics were producing. This information was then connected to the WrxFlo Machine Maintenance solution, where WrxFlo could transform the data into usable information for the client.
The product has an easy configuration set-up that primes the system. The information available includes shift configuration, performance during each shift, Equipment setup and an easily configurable screen attached to the system which can be adjusted as required. Preventive maintenance was also included for the operator to allow for easy calibration and maintenance of the machines.
