The calendar machine run by a motor has a shaft mounted gearbox connected to the roller. This gearbox allows maximum paper load and feeds the paper with reduced speed to the roller. In spite of scheduled preventive maintenance, it was observed that gearbox used to fail frequently. The rise in vibrations leading to the eventual failure of gearbox adversely affected the quality of the paper. Monitoring the gearbox was thus vital and critical.
Industrial Data Enabler was installed at the bearing location supporting the output shaft of the gearbox to capture tri-axial vibrations and acoustic signals in real-time. After 3 months of deployment, IDE detected a steady rise in the vibrations. A rise in corresponding noise levels was also recorded. Alert notifications were sent via SMS and emails to the registered local as well as remote authorities.
