Predictive Maintenance v. Preventive Maintenance

Intellisense_LogoWouldn’t you love to look into the future and anticipate machine failure and costly downtime?

Instead of shutting down every summer for a week or two for complete maintenance overhauls just to give your machines a better chance of uptime the rest of the year, wouldn’t it be better, easier and smarter to address the issues right before they might happen individually?

Throw out old Preventive Maintenance and bring in Predictive Maintenance.

Why traditionally replace products that still might have a few more weeks or months of productive life? Save time and money while keeping production moving. You can plan on a repair or part replacement prior to a catastrophic failure and ultimatly lost production. Even OEMs can offer their customers smarter equipment with the value of better throughput, uptime and bottom line impact.

The answer is Bimba's new Intellisense® and it can save your company valuable time and money. IntelliSense®, a technology platform enabling users to be proactive about maintenance and system optimization. A one-of-a-kind breakthrough in pneumatics, IntelliSense® combines sensors, cylinders, and software to deliver real-time performance data.
