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.
Maintenance and repair (MRO) affects many production and management departments of the enterprise. Therefore, in the planning process, attention should be paid to the comprehensive coordination of their activities. The first steps in this direction involve the creation of a…
