Heavy industry also means fast degradation, high impact and high costs. Preventing important heavy equipment from breaking down is crucial for mining operations.
Because degradation always comes with a cause, @ UVS we are not only looking at the for example tire wear, bearing vibration or other final impact result, but we are measuring causes. These causes can be operating hour, load, excessive usage, weather, dust and many more parameters that might influence degradation and critical assets / components to fail.
Although this might seem very theoretical and academic, predictive maintenance and sensor technology that supports the improvement of operability, is very well applicable in heavy industries.
