MTC implement Preventative Maintenance with IoT Horizon’s low-cost sensors

MTC Manufacturing Technology Centre IoT Horizon

IoT Horizon has successfully implemented a Preventative Maintenance solution into the MTC, for a project showcasing innovative and low-cost sensing solutions for SME’s.

The primary aim of our IIoT testbeds is to help UK’s IIoT technology businesses to streamline product development lifecycles by providing them with direct, supported access to manufacturing applications to test their solutions.

We implemented IoT Horizon’s Bluetooth sensing solution on a heavy-duty bandsaw machine, demonstrating the potential of the solution to monitor vibration and temperature from legacy equipment. The system was simple to set up and install and the team from IoT Horizon was flexible and approachable.

Deyrick Allen, Managing Director said, “We were delighted to install our solution at the MTC IoT testbed and demonstrate how simple solutions that work out of the box, can help SME’s to make intelligent decisions using real-time data. The alerts enable SME’s to monitor and react quickly before situations reach a critical level.”

The benefits of the solution include real-time alerts on vibration and temperature enabling a true predictive maintenance strategy; cost-effective monitoring for all your rotating assets; highly secure (AES128-CBC data encryption) and a simple set-up and installation process.
