Predictive maintenance

Semiotic Labs, a scale-up company based in Leiden, Netherlands, and SMS group have signed an agreement under which the two companies will cooperate in the field of predictive maintenance. 

SAM4 developed by Semiotic Labs operates based on sensors installed directly in the control cabinet. This solution is particularly useful for the monitoring of equipment in service under rough operating conditions as typical in the metallurgical industry.

The convincing results achieved by SAM4 under such highly demanding in-service conditions and tests at the SMS group workshops led to the decision to make this technology part of the SMS product portfolio.

Further, it is planned to integrate SAM4 into Genius CM®, SMS group’s condition monitoring system. Also, cooperation in the field of data analyses and joint development activities between the two companies is planned.

The cooperation will become another important element of SMS group’s strategy of supplying Smart Maintenance Solutions that help their customers maximize uptime. Thus strategic predictive maintenance based on condition monitoring will become much more reliable and efficient than maintenance strategies based on operating times. And it will increase the components' lifetime and overall equipment efficiency.
