Managing cybersecurity risk in maintenance and reliability

Managing cybersecurity risk in maintenance and reliability

 Maintenance and reliability teams increasingly utilize a range of technologies, systems and devices—all of which can present cybersecurity risks. For this presentation, cyber expert Matthew Hudon and CMRP Frederic Baudart are joining together to outline which cybersecurity risks M&R teams should pay particular attention to and what preventive actions make the most sense to…

Vibration monitoring for peak asset performance

Vibration monitoring for peak asset performance

Vibration monitoring alerts teams to changes in machine condition before the situation degrades enough to cause harm. With a solid mix of monitoring and in-person evaluation, maintenance teams can move closer to condition-based-maintenance, where they make decisions and schedule work based on what their assets are saying, not just on the maintenance intervals. Join this…

Adding business value through data-driven maintenance

Adding business value through data-driven maintenance

By Ankush Malhotra President at Fluke Reliability Every day, in manufacturing facilities worldwide, experienced and capable people are trying to second-guess the maintenance requirements of the machines that populate their plants. The reason is simple: They know that an effective maintenance program can increase their uptime, decrease maintenance costs, reduce unplanned outages, and extend the…

New approaches for condition monitoring in  process manufacturing industries

New approaches for condition monitoring in process manufacturing industries

By Robert Schmaus In process manufacturing, ensuring minimal interruptions to production is vital to a plant’s overall success. Just about every machine involved in production is geared to work 24/7 without interruption. In theory, at least. In reality, unexpected stoppages happen, and operations teams work hard to keep them as brief and infrequent as possible….

What your M&R peers are planning to address in their pandemic recovery

At a time like this, when normal is abnormal and abnormal has become business as usual, it can be useful to find out how your peers are approaching their maintenance strategies. That’s why we at Fluke worked with Plant Services this spring to survey more than 200 maintenance and reliability professionals to assess how the…

The most costly pitfalls in laser shaft alignment

The most costly pitfalls in laser shaft alignment

Maintenance teams know these pitfalls. Coupling backlash, where manual positioning of the coupling is needed during a measurement rotation. Uncoupled machines, where laser and sensor heads must be separately and manually positioned on a machine, leading to possible errors and rework. Repeated moves and measurements just to get an accurate alignment result. In this webinar,…

Maintenance automation and the P-F Curve – cocktail for the pandemic and beyond

The pandemic that has upended normalcy in 2020 is fueling urgency among maintenance leaders for system improvements previously viewed as “future considerations.” The ability to monitor asset health remotely, for example, has gone from a “want” to a “need”—something essential to stay productive in the near term and competitive over the long run. Around 82%…

Are you letting your machines control you?

Are you letting your machines control you?

Reliability is designed—literally and figuratively. Literally speaking, the inherent reliability of our equipment is governed by its design. But as equipment custodians, what we do (or don’t do) affects a machine’s reliability more than we may think—and it goes way beyond maintenance. In this webinar, RCM expert Nancy Regan details the winning reliability philosophy that…

How to get the best ROI for digitalizing your asset maintenance

How to get the best ROI for digitalizing your asset maintenance

The current crisis is making the benefits and value of flexibility in the Industrial Internet of Things more obvious than ever. It is driving more people to investigate how the cloud and IIoT with software-connected equipment and advanced analytics tools can turn data volumes into meaningful maintenance intelligence accessible onsite or remotely. However, maintenance leaders…
