INTERPIPE STEEL: QR codes and online monitoring using sensors
The plant began to implement a maintenance system last year. During this time, information was provided on 2 thousand 169 pieces of equipment. There are 23 thousand sensors at INTERPIPE STEEL, of which 2 thousand monitor the condition of the equipment.
2.5 million readings are processed per minute in the PM.
One of the goals in the near future is to create a neural network from sensors, so as not only to record the fact of non-working equipment, but also to understand the reason by the combination of signals. As quickly as possible, without equipment bypasses, but through information from the maintenance.
Maintenance Maintenance Specialist:
– The implementation of the project on INTERPIPE STEEL and INTERPIPE WORMET began at the end of August 2017 and lasted a year. Last September, maintenance tasks became our operations.
Head of repair and analysis department:
“Of course, planning repairs using the PM system is much easier.” For example, there are 25 pull-right modules on CCM-1, and 20 on CCM-2. All modules are located close to each other, it’s hard to approach them. Sensors record and monitor their condition.
In the professional environment, it is customary to say that the world is on the verge of large-scale changes in production. And the one who quickly adapts to the new reality will secure a confident position in the market. In…
The trend of recent years is the transition of modern industries from reactive methods of dealing with breakdowns to predictive maintenance. This approach has already proven its effectiveness in preventing emergency situations and saving on repairs. But what if we…
When repairing equipment, they do not always fix the problem on time: somewhere they forgot to drain the oil, somewhere they did not change the fuel filter, and somewhere prematurely put the “left” spare part. This is how small grains…
