The ABB electric motor factory in Vaasa is using the Machine Track by Pinja for production monitoring. It is connected to the maintenance software Novi by Pinja, which means that possible problems can be taken care of quickly. The accumulating data forms a list of problems to which special attention should be paid.
– The fact that we do not manufacture and store motors but prepare them as the customer’s orders them poses a distinct challenge to our production. An average production series consists of 1,7–2 motors, so production must be flexible. Simultaneously, this is a challenge for availability and maintenance, says Maintenance Supervisor Jani Hienovirta.
According to Hienovirta, the target availability rate set for the factory is over 98 per cent. In order to achieve this goal, machine control and maintenance software solutions were acquired to make the work procedures and maintenance as efficient as possible.
