About the Customer

A global leading Indian paper manufacturing company specialized in technologically advanced and most eco-friendly, paper and paperboards business.

Challenge

Paper production is a two-way process which involves conversion of a fibrous raw material into pulp, and then the pulp converted into paper. This diversified conglomerate paper manufacturing company in India faced gearbox failure which resulted into unreliable product quality and unexpected line stoppages.

Solution

The IDEs were installed on the gearbox which help in prediction of breakdown with the help of IDAP platform in which it also displayed the breakdown condition in FFT spectrum.

Result

  • IDE detected quite irregular FFT spectrum for the Z axis for the gearbox.
  • The IDAP displayed anomalous harmonics in the 2x and 3x regions (first even and first odd harmonics) and unusually high 1x –indicating the onset of misalignment.
  • Huge peak in the frequency spectrum for the dominant frequency indicating a very clear misalignment and immediate need for dynamic balancing.
  • Dynamic balancing of the system resolved the issue and erratic breakdowns were eliminated.

Transformation

USD 2 Million saved in 2 days thanks to prediction of gearbox breakdown also saving on-time delivery cost in the process.
