Identifying weak points at an early stage, rapid troubleshooting, ideal planning of maintenance and servicing activities, optimizing stocks of spare parts – these are all benefits that you get as a plant operator if you are advised about the status of your drive systems at all times. Digital Drive Train Services give you the help you need.
Services for the entire drive train
Minimize unscheduled downtimes. Plan downtimes in advance. Significantly reduce downtime costs. Optimize your energy costs. You benefit from condition-based drive maintenance. Digital Drive Train Services add a further dimension to our traditional service business. Now, in addition to the hardware, connectivity and platform, you can also use the associated Digital Services throughout the entire drive train. Our Digital Drive Train Services are made up of a range of services that you can use on a modular basis, entirely in line with your needs.
High availability levels are essential for complex drive systems, and you need fast, professional support in an emergency. This is done more and more via remote access, using powerful, state-of-the-art communications media. At your request we will access your system directly, which will give us access to all the analytical, diagnostic and intervention options. Using the Remote Service platform takes the growing demands for IT security, traceability and flexibility of remote access fully into account. Your benefits at a glance:
Alongside converters, motors and couplings, gear units form an essential part of the drive train. By measuring informative condition values, it is possible to identify, diagnose and locate abnormalities as well as to determine their cause. Gear Unit Condition Monitoring is a diagnostic tool that is optimally tailored to your individual requirements .
Our Mobile and Remote Monitoring Services make condition-based maintenance a reality. This greatly expands the range of opportunities offered by normal machine protection. Condition Monitoring maximizes plant availability and keeps lifecycle costs to a minimum since the service life of critical machine components can be used to the full extent. The necessary maintenance measures can be coordinated at the same time as the production plan. With Gear Unit Condition Monitoring we are offering you an extensive portfolio with standardized and individual solutions for any plant size.
Mobile Services offer a flexible and cost-effective solution for both standard and application-specific gear units. Measurements are carried out using hand-held devices on site by Siemens service professionals at regular intervals or when required e.g. in troubleshooting cases. Our skilled team of experts carries out data evaluation and diagnosis.
Remote Monitoring Service means you no longer need your own specialized staff on site. The measurement data is continuously sent to our Expert Centre via secure channels where a qualified diagnosis is performed. Our remote monitoring Service portfolio includes:
Drive components such as motors are often exposed to extreme stresses and are constantly subject to varying levels of wear and tear, depending on their length of service and the loads placed on them. The strains can often remain invisible to the naked eye for quite some time, leading to outages and unplanned downtimes which imply high financial losses. It is therefore vital to be able to correctly assess component status at all times. By continuously monitoring the motors, changes in their operating status can be identified at an early stage as part of the Motor Condition Monitoring process, and the appropriate countermeasures can be introduced.
Electrical machines require special attention if the availability of a plant is critically dependent on their reliability. A failure of these machines would lead to a plant standstill – if no redundancy is provided, or if there are no replacement machines available at short notice – with corresponding loss of production and increased repair costs. This makes it particularly important to detect and localize weak spots in the winding insulation system of your high-voltage motors early on.
Lifetime Analysis offers you continuous condition monitoring of your winding insulation system using online partial-discharge (PD) measurement while your system is running, with no need for downtimes. You benefit from precise measurement in operation, early identification of weak points, fewer downtimes. In short: Lifetime Analysis substantially improves your motor availability.
Lifting competitiveness by increasing productivity is one of the most important challenges in industry. In many cases, investment in energy efficiency projects is a potential lever. Service Energy Performance Contracting for drive applications finances your optimization measures from the savings you make in power costs. The projects are structured to ensure that only a part of the savings are used for the service component and the balance of the saving remains as a direct benefit for you. The projects are implemented in a four-step process with low risk for our customers thanks to the promised savings:
Your benefits at a glance:
Be won over by the extensive Digital Drive Train Services portfolio. And by how you can benefit from customized, modular services.
More and more companies are opting for digital services – because they make a substantial contribution toward increasing plant availability. And ultimately saving costs in the process.
Improved productivity and reliability thanks to Condition Monitoring
Continuous drive train monitoring
Rapid amortization by minimizing downtimes
Faster evaluation with no downtimes during winding inspections at Zolling power plant – thanks to a switch to online PD measurement.
It can an be performed during operation, providing more accurate results.
A further plus is the constant recording of the winding temperature to determine the thermal wear profile.
Glass production is highly energy-intensive. That means the ability to save power costs is highly important for the manufacturer.
Energy Analytics and Energy Performance Contracting drew up a master plan to identify potential savings and finance the investments needed.
In just the first three years of the long-term project, power cost savings of around £1 million were achieved.
Whether you need a special digital service or a comprehensive service package for your drive train: our experts are always there to help and advise. They are happy to provide support and are available to offer detailed information on the services in question.
