The specific and non-stop recording of data for production, energy, and quality allows fast response times for introducing the right measures. This increases the efficiency of spinning mills while reducing costs. The data is displayed in a user-friendly cockpit that shows the individual data for each machine in the form of a drill-down feature, for a quick and easy access.
ESSENTIALmaintain – intelligent maintenance
ESSENTIALmaintain enables intelligent spinning mill maintenance. It analyzes sensor data from critical machine components and identifies abnormalities to avoid outages. Detailed alarm notifications with clear measures ensure that the user keeps the equipment at highest availability. Thanks to a smart ticketing system, past and current alarms are available, and it is easy to track their status. This improves machine productivity and lengthens the service life while reducing the overall costs of inspection and maintenance. From Rieter to third-party spinning equipment and auxiliaries, ESSENTIALmaintain covers the entire spinning mill maintenance needs.
ESSENTIALpredict – avoid outages
ESSENTIALpredict applies machine learning algorithms to sensor data of ESSENTIALmaintain and compares the running behavior of similar machine types. As soon as a machine starts behaving abnormally, the user receives a message containing clear instructions from Rieter on how to avoid a potential outage.
