“We rely on our machines to operate reliably 24/7 to remain competitive as a U.S.-based manufacturer. The ProAxion system is helping us reduce the risk of unexpected downtime by alerting us when service is required ahead of time, versus after a problem already occurs. Their system helps us remain competitive by avoiding disruptive downtime and potential missed customer shipments, plus it helps us optimize maintenance activities by servicing machines only when necessary,”
- John Parkinson, CEO, Drake Extrusion
“The system fits well in our predictive maintenance program by providing 24/7 monitoring of the equipment where it is being used. The hope is that the machine vibration and temperature data will help to identify issues before they result in a breakdown,”
- Mark Custer, Plant Manager, Blue Ridge Fiberboard
"We installed the TACTIX system on two of our most critical fan bearings. Just two months later we identified a pattern of data from the TACTIX system of increasing vibration and temperature every week at the same time. It was not something our weekly maintenance checks had noticed. When we checked the bearings, we learned that we hadn't been lubricating properly. If we hadn't had the TACTIX alert, the bearing would have likely run to failure and we would have been down for at least 2 days to replace it. Our cost for one day of down time for one line is $60,000. We've since changed our lubrication process and we are seeing extended life of our bearings."
