Your production machines are constantly dealing with parts that wear out, where the financial consequences of a broken part can be huge. To prevent this, we work to continuously and automatically monitor your machine (parts).

About the project
Yet for many companies, especially SMEs, it is not easy to make a proper business analysis. We also notice that companies have a hard time choosing between existing solutions or customised solutions. Indeed, for a specific production chain, the technical feasibility of different solutions are not often clear in advance.
FLANDERS MAKE AND CONDITION-BASED MAINTENANCE
We have been doing intensive research in the field of condition-based maintenance for years:
- We developed several software toolboxes for component defect detection.
- We have a number of test rigs with which we test hardware and software.
In particular, 7 test setups for condition-based maintenance were recently developed within the Smart Maintenance Living Lab. We have also conducted several technical feasibility studies at various SMEs.
With this COOCK project, Flanders Make wants to respond to the growing demand for predictive maintenance support. This is based on continuously monitoring the "condition" of selected machine parts.
The project's goal is twofold:
- On the one hand, we want to disseminate this knowledge as widely as possible
- On the other hand, we want to guide companies towards the appropriate methodology and technology for condition-based maintenance.
The target group for this project is a mix of small and large companies from across the value chain, with a focus on technology followers who are open to introducing condition-based maintenance into their work processes.
