Context and challenges
This client is an international high-tech company in the defence sector.
Maintaining industrial systems in operational condition at a lower cost has become a critical factor. In order to improve the industrial productivity of its machine fleet, this client implemented a condition monitoring system for its boring machine. This monitoring system includes a certain number of sensors in order to gain knowledge about the machine's state of health. The boring machine is a numerically controlled machine tool that is responsible for machining very large single parts.
In this context, this customer called on Assystem to develop a predictive maintenance solution for its boring machine, in order to carry out just-in-time maintenance, anticipate future breakdowns and thus implement the necessary actions, such as ordering spare parts in advance to prevent the machine from being unavailable for too long.
Deployment of a PHM (Prognostics and Health Management) approach on the machine. This concept of PHM and predictive maintenance completes traditional maintenance operations by taking into account failures more proactively.
