Condition Monitoring (CM) and Predictive Maintenance (PdM) are the top return on investment (ROI) opportunities in manufacturing and industrial process applications. PdM delivers ROI in asset intensive industries including manufacturing and industrial process operations.
Businesses need their assets to operate at full capacity with the lowest maintenance costs possible. CM and PdM allow this balance to occur. When asset condition data is integrated with maintenance and operations data, its gives a holistic, analytical view for predicting maintenance needs, operational anomalies, and business outcomes.
CBT Monitoring & Analytics
- Condition-indicating sensor monitoring (vibration, motor current, temperature, oil, ultrasonic, etc.)
- Predictive Analytics using Condition Monitoring and Operational data together
- Asset diagnostic tools
- Historian and CMMS implementation and integration, including work execution using Connected Worker
- Web-based dashboards with business and asset performance indicators
- Increased production capacity
- Lower maintenance costs
- Streamlined asset management and visibility
- Lower insurance costs with improved control of assets
- Bridge between the digital and physical worlds to fully connect assets, with immediate access to all relevant data
Condition Monitoring and Predictive Maintenance have real-world applications across a multitude of industries. They build a bridge from reactive maintenance with low productivity and high costs to a more predictable operation. They are especially relevant in asset-intensive verticals such as Oil & Gas, Energy & Utilities, Manufacturing, Mining, Pharmaceuticals, Food & Beverage, and Chemical Processing; where they expedite decision making by providing real-time access to critical data and analytics.
Innovation Delivery as a Service (IDAAS) is CBT’s proven process that de-risks innovation and gives you the best chance for digital transformation success. Delivering real results through constant evolution, transformation, rapid iteration, innovation, and support.
Connected Worker uses intrinsically safe devices to deliver actionable data to key personnel in real time.
How CBT Uses RealWear to Implement Industrial IoT
CB Technologies’ Founder & CEO, Kelly Ireland, sits down to discuss the importance of our relationship with RealWear. This video was made at the RealWear Summit where CB Technologies was a Platinum Sponsor and gave presentations on implementing Idustrial IoT technologies at Texmark’s Refinery of the Future.
CB Technologies Becomes Inaugural CEI Member at HPE Discover 2019
June has been a big month for the CBT team, sponsoring and exhibiting at three major national conferences over the first three weeks of the month. After attending PTC LiveWorx, June 10-13, we headed straight out to Las Vegas for HPE Discover.HPE Discover is more focused on information technology (IT) than LiveWorx, but our goals remained the same: demonstrate that our methodology for Industrial IoT is unique and effective. We wanted to show that CBT is truly ahead of the crowd because of ou…
This Chemical Plant Cut Maintenance Costs In Half With HPE’s IoT Offering
Texmark Chemicals, a petrochemical plant in Galena Park, Texas, needed an efficient way to inspect the equipment in its facility. It turned to HPE and its partner CB Technologies, which transformed Texmark into a “refinery of the future.” “We came up with a solution that helps the worker in the chemical plant to achieve processes in 90 percent less time,” said Kelly Ireland, founder and CEO of CB Technologies, an HPE Aruba Platinum partner based in Orange, Calif. CB Technologies helped to …
Object detection technology: The next big thing
Seagate Technology inspects tens of millions of computer storage drive parts daily. The media that goes into them. The heads. The wafers. The completed assemblies and outer shells. For much of the company's history, this inspection was a time-consuming and costly process. To achieve the quality the global company’s customers expect, hard disk and solid-state drives would be tested once, twice, or even three times before human beings gave them a final blessing in what’s known as sequential in…
What the intelligent edge is and why it’s useful
The term "Intelligent Edge" is used in many ways, but perhaps the best way to think of it is as a place. The edge is where the action is. It's a manufacturing floor, a building, a campus, a city, your house, a crop field, a wind farm, a power plant, an oil rig, a telecommunications outpost, a sports arena, a battlefield, in your car, in the sky, or under the sea. It's everywhere everything is, and it's where the "things" are in the Internet of Things (IoT). The edge is "intelligent" because …
Edge computing yields deeper insights, faster
Edge computing drives smarter operations in every industry. Learn how. There are many different kinds of edges: a manufacturing floor, a building, a campus, a city, a crop field, a wind farm, a power plant, an oil rig, a sports arena, and more. Massive amounts of data are created and can be collected and analyzed at every edge. When used in context, and in a timely manner, this real-time data can yield all sorts of interesting insights. Edge computing use cases include: Improving saf…
