productronica will feature a Smart Maintenance Pavilion for the first time this coming November. This will highlight the growing importance of maintenance as digitization of production processes increases. The Smart Maintenance Pavilion will provide an overview of current and future applications, solutions, and products for efficient maintenance.
According to a study from acatech (German Academy of Science and Engineering), industrial maintenance generates plant availabilities and productivity values to the equivalent of one trillion euros in Germany each year.
In the course of digitization and the associated networking of plants, products and materials, the number of maintenance tasks and responsibilities will continue to grow. In this context, achieving almost 100 percent availability of highly flexible production systems is one of the major challenges.
Electronics production places high demands on plant availability and safety. Integration of smart maintenance on the path to the smart factory is therefore an important addition. Plant planning and management must be coordinated holistically to achieve optimum production efficiency.
The Smart Maintenance Pavilion will provide a compact overview of current and future applications, solutions, and products for efficient maintenance. Focus topics include predictive maintenance, condition monitoring, mobile maintenance and augmented reality. Visitors will have an opportunity to talk with experts, experience specific maintenance processes in practice, and learn from the experiences of others.
With a combination of applications (demo park maintenance), guided tours and “Meet the Experts” workshops, visitors will be offered a consolidated mixture of information, practical examples, and experience reports.
