Regal's Perceptive Technologies<sup>®</sup> Services Helps Users Monitor Life of Mechanical Components
Enables companies to utilize data to anticipate part fatigue before it happens
BELOIT, Wis., August 1st., 2019 — Regal Beloit Corporation, a leading manufacturer of electric motors, electrical motion controls, power generation and power transmission components, announced it will showcase its Perceptive Technologies services offering at PACK EXPO 2019 in US-7620.
Perceptive Technologies services include a complete offering of technical services that helps companies be proactive — rather than reactive — when it comes to sustaining their maintenance processes. Regal has combined its extensive electrical and mechanical power transmission product knowledge with its vast application experience, diagnostic tools and troubleshooting. The company’s analysts and engineers have applied that knowledge to develop algorithms for artificial intelligence which are embedded in the software. This provides customers with easy-to-understand, actionable information.
The Perceptive Technologies services encompasses all of Regal’s services and products for predictive and proactive maintenance of rotating equipment, including:
- Transient torque monitoring for fatigue life prediction and efficiency
- Vibration monitoring and analysis
- Infrared thermography
- Lubrication analysis
- Motor current signature analysis
With an app on a tablet, smartphone or computer, an operator can use the online monitoring system to determine the existing state of a component and then measure effects of changes in products or processes. If the technology determines that a component may soon malfunction, personnel can schedule maintenance or order and ship a new part before equipment failure occurs. This type of artificial intelligence — at one time expensive to monitor and build — is now mainstream. The results of this connected, smart equipment are improved performance, reliability and operational efficiency.
PACK EXPO will take place from Sept. 23 to 25 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
