What is the most vital performance factor for electric rotating machinery? The answer is machine uptime. In times when an hour of downtime can equate to thousands of dollars in losses, securing predictability becomes a high priority for all industrial businesses. Manufacturers operate in a highly volatile environment, which makes predictive maintenance not only a nice-to-have but a necessity to survive and thrive in unfavorable conditions.
Making machines perform better means, first and foremost, understanding how the machine works, extracting relevant data, and gaining meaningful insights into ongoing processes.
Established in the late 1940s, FLANDERS began as Flanders Electric, a repair shop in Evansville, Indiana, growing over the next decades into a global leader in industrial control and power systems technology. True experts in electrical machines, FLANDERS specializes in the development, manufacturing, integration, and deployment of advanced technologies for the world’s largest machines with electric rotating systems. FLANDERS’ goal is to eliminate downtime and increase machine performance, thus offering higher value for its customers.
Industrial businesses have always been fighting yesterday’s war. Not having enough data coming in and the capacity to process it leads to reacting only after a machine failure occurs. Relayr’s Industrial IoT offering helps companies overcome these challenges and stay relevant in a competitive environment. A proactive approach guarantees reliability, predictability, and increased performance.
Leveraging relayr’s artificial intelligence-based IoT technologies, FLANDERS can provide its customers with new digital services and thus further reduce unexpected downtime and improve asset performance. Furthermore, operators gain ongoing insights into critical failures and efficiency levels, thus increasing machine predictability and performance.
Through the partnership, it is now possible to reduce capital expenditures and ensure maximum production of critical assets. FLANDERS is the first company in the market for customers in mining and heavy industrial markets that can offer innovative, guaranteed uptime and pay-per-use models.
The relayr and FLANDERS partnership brings the best of both worlds – relayr with the algorithms and technology and FLANDERS with the motor expertise and experience – together to create a really innovative and game-changing product.MACKENZIE COULTER
