At this year's Maintec 2009 exhibition at the NEC, Schaeffler (UK) will showcase a number of products and services for the inspection and maintenance of plant and machinery.
Visitors to stand 53 will have the opportunity to see how these products and services can help improve machine availability, minimise plant downtime and reduce overall maintenance costs.
Specialists from Schaeffler's maintenance and asset management division FAG Industrial Services (F'IS) will be on hand ready to offer guidance.
Visitors can learn, for example, how to reliably mount and dismount bearings and how the latest vibration monitoring systems can support a company's predictive maintenance regime.
A major focus of the stand this year will be to introduce visitors to the Smart Performance Programme.
Under this programme, F'IS offers its customers a portfolio of rolling bearing-related products and services to help plant operators and maintenance staff to increase machine availability and minimise production downtime.
The emphasis is on working closely with customers to develop total maintenance solutions.
Customer success stories from every industry sector will be available to read on the stand and are also available for download.
Schaeffler will also showcase a number of products at Maintec including its Atex-certified FAG Procheck system.
Developed to help companies monitor vibration levels on critical rotating plant or machinery, FAG Procheck is an online monitoring system that enables maintenance teams to monitor vibration levels and diagnose faults on critical rotating plant and machinery.
The Atex-certified version can be used in hazardous gas or dust environments and has a range of communications interfaces so that it can be integrated with a company's existing plant management or production control and maintenance systems.
Also on the stand is Concept 6, Schaeffler's intelligent lubrication system, which can be used for either single or multi-point lubrication.
Concept 6 can be used in harsh conditions and is suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.
Battery-powered or machine-controlled, each system discharges precise amounts of lubricant to bearings over extended periods, optimising performance and increasing service life.
Providing optimum operating conditions for rolling bearing solutions is critical in increasing machine availability.
Schaeffler's Arcanol range of rolling bearing greases includes 15 different types, each graduated to cover all application areas.
Visitors can discuss how to optimise bearing lubrication techniques with F'IS specialists on the stand.
The FAG Detector series of hand-held vibration monitoring and balancing devices will also be demonstrated on the stand.
The latest version of FAG Detector III, version 3.4, has been d with a host of software features.
