WearCheck partners with a Swedish condition monitoring instrument manufacturer SPM

WearCheck, the South Africa based condition monitoring company has announced a partnership with Swedish condition monitoring instrument manufacturers, SPM.

The full SPM range features portable condition monitoring products, online systems, maintenance tools, technologies and expertise, all using techniques that help customers to achieve the highest possible uptime of critical assets an approach which dovetails perfectly with WearCheck’s.

WearCheck’s technicians have been trained to use, apply and install the SPM equipment, which performs many reliability solutions techniques, including vibration measurement and analysis, balancing, orbit analysis and laser shaft alignment, bearing and pulse checking, lubrication assessment and root cause analysis.

The use of scientific lubrication is one way of saving money. Tough economic times dictate that companies need a thrifty approach to maintenance, without compromising on quality. By lubricating scientifically, in other words utilising condition monitoring technology to tell companies if they need to lubricate, rather than relying on a time-based programme, plants will definitely create cost savings. This is a process done with SPM’s BearingChecker and Vibchecker as the first line of defence.

With A lack of on-site manpower to conduct condition monitoring does not mean that this is an opportunity for machinery to fail. WearCheck and SPM now have online guarding solutions in the form of the SPM Intellinova range of online condition monitoring units, which combine wired and wireless (Airius) platforms into one cloud-based/on-site server application.

SPM’s Condmaster software the platform via which all the SPM devices interact supports the full product range including handheld devices for measuring vibration data, alignment and balancing. The software also governs online systems for continuous monitoring, such as wired multichannel systems and wireless monitoring systems, as well as supporting external user directories such as Microsoft Azure AD and REST API. The software offers a wide range of connectivity options, perfect for smart factories and Industry 4.0 environment.

As per the distribution agreement, WearCheck will provide full technical support and sales for SPM instruments in the following countries in which WearCheck operates: South Africa, Zambia, Namibia, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, and Botswana.
