SmartG presentation in Hannover Messe

Goizper and IK4-TEKNIKER will be present at the Hannover Messe from 24 to 28 April 2017‎ presenting Smart G, a data acquisition module for clutch-brake monitoring.

Clutch-brake systems produced by Goizper are key components in cutting, forming, folding and press machines.

The aim of this presentation is to show how incorporation of the Smart G module can convert a clutch-brake system into a monitorable smart component, which includes self-diagnostics capabilities that can provide information about the current state of the component and predict failures before they occur.

Communications modules incorporated in the Smart G component provides capabilities to:

  • Remotely monitor the component
  • Send the data to a cloud platform where all historic data are stored.

Having the data of Goizper’s clutch-brakes fleet on a cloud platform will provide the possibility to use more advanced techniques and algorithms in order to predict failures and/or remaining useful life of key components of the system.

Benefits are two-fold: Goizper will drastically improve the knowledge about their equipment to improve reliability of their products and the maintenance services provided to customers, while customers will benefit from a reduced downtime of the machines and more cost-effective maintenance strategy.

Goizper and Tekniker’s work on failure prediction and diagnosis, as well as cloud platform development, have received funding from the European Union under the MANTIS project.
