What is predictive maintenance?
Companies use predictive maintenance to carry out maintenance activities at exactly the right time, rather than too early (preventive) or too late (corrective). They use data to predict the best moment to carry out maintenance. Since predictive maintenance is becoming increasingly popular and ARCO likes to be one step ahead of the competition, we are currently working hard to develop this new service.
The benefits of predictive maintenance
The benefits of using ARCO’s predictive maintenance for your installation:
- You can start planning the activities well in advance;
- ARCO can predict, in good time, when your system will fail;
- Components can be replaced just before failures (in accordance with the proposed plan);
- Minimal downtime;
- Maximize the service life of the components.
Reliable predictions based on data
In order to deliver an effective predictive maintenance system for our customers, we have worked hard to
- set up a robust service organization with several service coordinators and several service technicians. Our experts are committed to maintaining machines and processes in the best possible way. Our team of service technicians, who are specialists in the mechanical and software aspects of machines and installations, is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week
- make sure that all our machines and installations can be connected to the Internet. We can connect to the machine or installation remotely via data communication, which gives us access to real-time data. Based on the number of operating hours, for example, it can be determined whether bearings need to be replaced.
Stappenplan voor predictive maintenance
1.Scan the machine
We start by scanning the machine to analyse its components, the estimated service life of these components, and how these components should be cleaned or replaced. This data is then used to create an interactive dashboard, which forms the basis for a plan that is proposed to the customer.
2.Proof of value
Before you adopt a new system, you want to be sure that it will actually benefit your organization. ARCO always offers proof of value; this means that you can test, in real situations, how the system will work for you, where improvements can still be made, and how the system will benefit your company.
Once the added value of the predictive maintenance system has been proven, we proceed with the implementation of the system. The system is optimized in the proof-of-value phase, after which it can be implemented.
Add-ons to our services
As a system integrator, we always want to stay one step ahead of the competition. With products that not only provide better performance, but are also stable, safe and sustainable. This requires optimal maintenance of our installations, easy options for making upgrades and the flexibility to respond quickly and efficiently to changing market requirements. To achieve this, more is needed than good service. View the supplement to our services below.
What our customers have to say
‘When you both believe in solutions, great results come naturally.’
‘ARCO has simplified our production process. Thanks to the comprehensive package of services and the customized solutions, ARCO is the ideal supplier for us.’
‘Looking back on this project, we have to say that the cooperation with ARCO was very smooth. We joined forces and implemented the best solution for our production line. Where we previously used many manual and labour-intensive processes, we now have a fully automated system that enables us to work very efficiently.’
‘Thanks to ARCO’s installation, we can do the same work with fewer operators. The system ensures a faster throughput of products and the best possible conditions for our operators. ’
‘Because we worked hand in hand with ARCO, everything was developed in consultation and the mega silo bunker perfectly suits our needs. It was an enjoyable collaboration that produced good results.’
‘We greatly appreciated ARCO’s ability to respond quickly. But not only that, they demonstrated exceptional creativity when devising the solution and the various test set-ups that they developed to test the design. The close cooperation between ARCO and ourselves facilitated the successful implementation of this particular packaging line.’
‘We know ARCO as a no-nonsense company that believes in workable and affordable solutions. This is what sets ARCO apart from other companies. They also have all the necessary knowledge in-house to create a strong and efficient line. We don’t know what the future holds, but we will certainly be happy to work together again.’
‘ARCO’s weighing line has had a major impact on our production. Our new system cuts product losses by up to 6%. It was a successful project and a rewarding collaboration.’
‘We were looking for a dosing system that could fill containers with clay and also ensure an even distribution. When emptying the containers, we are now able to deliver a good mixture of the ground clay to the factory. Thanks to ARCO’s dosing system, there are far fewer fluctuations in the clay, which in turn improves the quality.’
