Making availability plannable - Plant optimization and maintenance planning with Motion Control Services from Siemens

Hema relies on digitalization solutions from Siemens for predictive maintenance of its production facilities to maximize productivity. Software functions from the Sinumerik portfolio allow machine wear and performance to be precisely monitored and analyzed.

Hema Endüstri A.S. (Hema) is a world leading manufacturer of precision systems and components for different sectors of industry. Products manufactured by the Turkish company include motors, gears and drive systems as well as hydraulic products and aviation components. To optimize the maintenance of its production facilities and so maximize their productivity, Hema relies on extensive digitalization solutions from the Siemens Sinumerik portfolio. By using analytics tools to monitor the condition of its plants, Hema is able to implement precise maintenance activities and so allow any wear to machine components to be noticed and rectified in good time. This not only saves the company costs and time spent on unnecessary maintenance, it also provides an accurate overview of the machine’s condition at all times. Overall, this should enable a nine percent increase in plant productivity.
The failure of individual machines or even a complete production shutdown are among the greatest and most costly risks for any manufacturer. The potential repercussions bring the importance of predictive plant maintenance based on precise production data sharply into focus. Hema will be capturing this data for a DMG milling center in future using digitalization tools from Siemens, which will enable parts to be exchanged at just the right moment before they actually exceed their service life and become faulty. This also allows the optimum balance to be achieved between availability, capacity utilization and quality with OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness).
Efficient maintenance and improved capacity utilization
This was achieved by implementing the software tools Analyze MyCondition (AMC) and Analyze MyPerformance (AMP) on a Sinumerik 840D sl. AMC informs maintenance personnel via email about the condition of the entire plant before an alarm can be triggered by a malfunction. On the basis of the software, the technicians are able to predictively plan maintenance intervals and then adapt them to the actual condition of the machine. AMP’s analytical functions allow Hema to improve the plant’s output by carrying out a transparent check of its performance in real time. Engineers from Siemens not only supported the implementation process but will also be providing continuous system maintenance moving forward.
