Condition monitoring is used in various areas of industry. It can be used in almost all industries in which machines and systems are operated. Condition monitoring is used, for example, in the following industrial sectors:
Manufacturing: In the manufacturing industry, condition monitoring technologies are used to monitor the condition of production machines such as presses, robots, conveyor belts, and machine tools. In this way, possible malfunctions or wear are detected in good time and production downtimes are minimized.
Energy: Condition monitoring plays a crucial role in energy generation, e.g. in power plants as well as in renewable energy systems such as wind farms and solar plants. For example, when monitoring turbines, generators, and other components, continuous monitoring can prevent potential failures and improve equipment efficiency.
Transport & Logistics Industry: In the transport and logistics industry, condition monitoring is used to monitor the condition of vehicles, rail vehicles or aircraft. This allows for timely maintenance to avoid breakdowns during operation and to ensure the safety and availability of the vehicles.
Chemical and pharmaceutical industry: In the chemical and pharmaceutical industries, condition monitoring plays a fundamental role in monitoring equipment such as reactors, pumps or conveyor belts. The timely detection of deviations leads to increased operational reliability and product quality.
Mining and Heavy Industry: In industries such as mining or heavy industry, condition monitoring is crucial for monitoring machinery such as cranes, bucket wheel excavators or conveyor belts. Continuous monitoring enables timely planning of maintenance and repair work. As a result, safety in the workplace is significantly improved.
