Case Study: Condition Based Maintenance
CTRL worked with a major corrugator to integrate an ultrasound program to monitor critical roller bearings and gearboxes. We teamed with the corporate maintenance and operations teams to modify standard maintenance practices, develop a manual, train all sites, and integrate the procedures to the CMMS.
- Pilot site discovered a critical gearbox with a bad bearing with the first use, preventing catastrophic production shutdown
- Improved corrugator rolls’ asset life – 1 ½ years to 3 years
- Reduced critical asset catastrophic failure – “We had 1 bearing failure in the first 7 years of the program…”
