Measuring Machine Up-time by Measuring Conveyor Speed

Monitoring a machine’s up-time can be extremely valuable data when analyzing the overall utilization of your production environment. However, this can be extremely difficult when your machine is technically running all day but at different rates . CADDIS Systems recently encountered this hurdle while working with a packaging company in Wisconsin. Our customer is a leader in creating all types of packaging such as corrugated, honeycomb and other specialty packaging products. Our customer had a number of conveyors throughout their numerous facilities that ran from the beginning of the day until the end of the day without stopping. Our customer was interested in better understanding machine up- hashtagconveyors hashtagproduction time as well as the speed of the machine. By leveraging the analog input built into the Caddis device, we were able to transform the output signal from the existing VFD (variable frequency drive) driving the conveyor into a ft/min metric that could then be monitored to finally give this company the data they needed to increase their productivity and operations management. This is one example of how CADDIS Systems stands behind its message of being able to monitor Any Machine, Anytime, Anywhere and on Any Device.
