The integrated Metris platform developed by Andritz uses smart sensors as an energy self-sufficient and seamless support solution to monitor machine conditions continuously, even in areas that are difficult to access, according to a press release by Andritz. As a result, analysis of the data collected allows clients to pinpoint every possible issue upfront and helps to enhance line performance.
The Metris predictive maintenance system will enable Welspun Advanced Materials to increase its operating efficiency by avoiding unexpected line shutdowns, thus increasing performance; enabling easy operation along the entire line; and optimising maintenance organisation and planning.
The order follows the successful start-up of the newly installed, complete high-speed Andritz spunlace line at the Telangana plant, added the release.
“Implementing such a Metris predictive maintenance system in a spunlace production line is a milestone in India. We are very proud to see our company as a forerunner. The Andritz digitalisation experts have fully supported us in the development of our project and offered tailor-made monitoring and analysis of our plant. This is opening up key perspectives for our future operations, even in the short term, by digitalising our maintenance procedures and checklist routines,” said CEO Cherian Thomas.
With the Metris technology brand, Andritz Automation offers a wide range of digitisation products. The proprietary Metris platform adds significant value to the planning, operation, asset management, maintenance, and optimisation of production plants and the associated supply chains.
