When Dana Inc. brought its brand-new Dana Driveline Toledo plant online, team members recognized that they had an opportunity to stay ahead of equipment problems and failures. Already fitted with premier automation features and eMaint’s computer maintenance management software (CMMS) — also being used by 27 of its other facilities — they knew that if they wanted to keep the reliability gap in check, they’d need to add a maintenance and reliability system. That’s where Accelix, Fluke Corporation’s unique maintenance and reliability program, came in.
Dana Toledo Driveline is just one of the company’s many divisions in a network of nearly 100 engineering, manufacturing and distribution facilities. Dana Inc.’s driveline systems can be found in all types of wheeled vehicles, including Jeeps, commercial cars and large mining trucks. The new Dana Toledo Driveline plant manufactures and assembles axles for these vehicles.
By adding other components of Accelix’s connected reliability framework, like thermal imaging sensors and three-phase power monitors, the Dana Toledo plant could continuously monitor equipment conditions and see real-time data to help them make quicker and more informed maintenance decisions.
