Industrial Manufacturing Condition Monitoring

China Steel Uses NI PXI and LabVIEW to Build an Air Leakage Detection System for Sintering Pallets

"Our solution has provided effective, substantial help in increasing personnel safety, saving energy, decreasing carbon emissions, and increasing output."

- Dr. Wang Chih-Chung, China Steel Corporation (Taiwan)

Read case study

From discrete manufacturing applications in consumer goods and semiconductor to process manufacturing applications in steel mills, it is important to guarantee uptime and proper functioning of production machinery. Condition-based maintenance systems help to maximize yield and quality and reduce scrap, while decreasing unscheduled outages and maintenance and repair costs. NI solutions are deployed across a wide range of manufacturing subsectors and can easily scale to cover entire production plants.

Additional Case Studies

Loss of electricity and unplanned machinery downtime are leading causes of industrial plant and process plant shutdowns. The safe operation of plant and mechanical equipment are relied on to ensure the safety of maintenance technicians and these industrial plants. Learn how you can implement a machine condition monitoring system with the NI hardware and software platform.
