Maintenance (Industrial)

Maintenance in industrial automation encompasses different approaches:
Reactive Maintenance: This approach focuses on addressing equipment issues when they arise, often in response to a breakdown or malfunction. While reactive maintenance is still relevant, it is often the least efficient method, as it can result in costly unplanned downtime.

Preventive Maintenance: This strategy involves the execution of routine, scheduled maintenance tasks designed to proactively address expected wear and tear during an equipment’s lifecycle. Preventive maintenance aims to minimize potential issues, but it can sometimes result in unnecessary maintenance work, thus increasing costs.

Predictive Maintenance: Predictive maintenance leverages data and technology, particularly sensor technology, to gain insights into equipment performance and identify potential maintenance needs. Sensors, including those that utilize IO-Link Wireless, play a crucial role in this approach by providing real-time data and facilitating early alerts about potential maintenance issues. This strategy enhances efficiency and planning.
