The Increasing Role of Predictive Maintenance Technologies

You probably have some type of maintenance plan in place already, and it’s likely a preventive approach. Preventive or predictive maintenance are how most companies do industrial maintenance — and both are vastly superior to the third alternative — reactive maintenance, which essentially is addressing a piece of machinery only after it breaks down. Using equipment like sensors enable real-time monitoring, allowing manufacturers to detect changes in performances and address the issue before the failure.
