Predictive Machining: Learning to Stop Failures in Their Tracks

Predictive Machining: Learning to Stop Failures in Their Tracks

How secure, real-time delivery of machine data maximizes uptime and increases maintenance efficiencies.

On the shop floor, industry veterans know red lights mean trouble. LED stack lights and displays are tried and true methods to alert workers about machine failures or maintenance issues. These sensor-based signals have evolved into more sophisticated predictive systems that can detect problems well before they occur.

It’s called the Internet of Things (IoT), or Industry 4.0, and it’s driving a shift toward proactive maintenance.
