FAG SmartCheck is an innovative online system that can be used to monitor various machines. Typical tasks include the monitoring of electric motors, pumps, compressors, ventilators, fans and gearboxes. Schaeffler Industrial Aftermarket (IAM) is a division of Schaeffler Group, a world leading automotive and industrial supplier. With precision components and systems within the motor, gearbox and chassis as well as rolling and slide bearings solutions the Schaeffler Group contributes significantly to the mobility in tomorrow‘s world.
With FAG SmartCheck, Schaeffler offers its customers a compact, easy to operate and at the same time economical solution for the monitoring of machines on the basis of both classical and oscillation-based process parameters.
FAG SmartCheck reliably detects possible damage to machines at an early stage, thereby helping to avoid unplanned stoppages and to prevent expensive consequential damage. Complemented by a comprehensive range of services from Schaeffler in the areas of machine diagnosis and bearings, FAG SmartCheck makes a valuable contribution to process optimization and to the reduction of life-cycle costs (LCC) and thus to the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).
Characteristic patterns in the oscillation signals from components such as shafts, pulleys and fans provide an early indication that damage is starting to occur. In combination with process parameters such as torque, load and rpm, precise statements can be made about the progress of the damage. An integrated sensor determines temperature parameters.
The Schaeffler Online Monitoring Center offers customers further advantages such as remote maintenance, system updating as well as the administration and archiving of measurement data, and support.
