Innovative predictive maintenance solution wins award
07 October 2019
The Maintenance 4.0 for Intralogistics concept for condition monitoring and semi-automatic maintenance was developed by SSI SCHAEFER in partnership with Schaeffler.
The solution is among the winners of the LOGISTRA Best Practice: 2018 Innovations” Readers’ Choice Awards. The accolade underscores the inventive and future-proof design.
Schaeffler supplied the components for the Maintenance 4.0 for Intralogistics solution, and SSI Schaefer acted as the system integrator. The partners collaborated closely to create a sophisticated solution package for condition monitoring of crucial drive systems, and for the partial automation of maintenance in warehouses. The result was implemented at the Schaeffler European distribution centre (EDZ Mitte).
A total of 58 Schaeffler SmartCheck systems monitor drive motors and gears employed for the horizontal and vertical movement of storage and retrieval machines (SRMs). The alert status of each SmartCheck device, plus other warehouse systems, are all available visually in the SSI Schaefer WAMAS Lighthouse logistics cockpit.
