Best Asset Condition Monitoring Practices for Forging

Forming metal requires high precision, so tools like thermography and analysis of pressure, vibration, and oil conditions are necessary parts of predictive maintenance. This makes next-generation CMMS invaluable to Smart manufacturing.

The metal forming industry demands high-precision manufacturing methods. Condition monitoring of hydraulic or large, mechanically driven machines — as for example, forging presses — is of critical importance for the proper functioning of these plants. Thermography, pressure, vibration and oil analysis are used to collect important data for predictive algorithms and form proactive maintenance processes. Next-gen CMMS (that is, “computerized maintenance management systems
