Predictive, preventive, and corrective maintenance services are crucial for properly functioning industrial parks with uninterrupted production. That is why monitoring has advanced over decades regarding production and data accuracy.
In SEMEQ, we have developed technologies with our professional team to offer better and better predictive monitoring services. Nowadays, we have control software, smart data collection sensors, oil analysis laboratories, and a team of experts to create advanced algorithms with artificial intelligence.
This article presents the benefits of predictive services for industries and why SEMEQ is the best choice for those who want industrial plants free of contingencies.
What are the impacts caused by equipment wear in industrial plants?
For a company to be efficient in its production process, it needs to have maximum control over the factors that affect its production. After all, machine failures can compromise their useful life and lead to downtime in the production process, generating huge losses for companies.
When equipment presents wear in parts or mechanical failures, this causes a series of losses, such as
- Expenses with replacement parts;
- Expenses with repair labor;
- Unexpected production stops;
- Machine downtime;
- Decrease the productive potential of the industrial plant;
- Expenses with more energy consumption;
- Compromised final product quality;
- Lack of machine availability.
How does the predictive monitoring service work around these challenges?
According to consultancy McKinsey & Company, predictive maintenance service increases the availability of a production line by up to 15% and can also reduce maintenance costs by up to 25%.
An efficient predictive service for industries helps to avoid unnecessary downtime, thus increasing operational efficiency and productivity and reducing costs. In addition, it helps to prevent further damage, extend component life, and improve machine reliability.
To make this possible, sensors installed on the machines or data collectors are used, which can work offline and online. These sensors and collectors can measure the equipment’s vibration, thermography, and ultrasound conditions, ensuring that any abnormal movement is identified before failure occurs.
In addition to smart sensors, predictive monitoring in Industry 4.0 also uses software capable of storing large amounts of data, providing valuable information for analyzing machine conditions.

Find out how we carry out predictive monitoring in your industrial park
In the lab, Artificial Intelligence technology sifts and points out the probability of some parts failing in the machines. Remote and traditional monitoring techniques, such as vibration studies and lubricating oil analysis, are used to evaluate the condition of the equipment.
The choice of the most appropriate technique depends on the type of machine and the needs of each industry. Based on this diagnosis, it is possible to map which equipment will most likely fail in the customer’s plant.
Fusion of techniques
Another differential of SEMEQ is the possibility of working with several combined techniques. This is because each use of multiple techniques allows better detection of failures.
Therefore, we use a combination of predictive approach techniques to increase the accuracy of our analyses.
For example, to identify the problem in a gearbox, we can do a vibration analysis and combine it with an oil analysis. This mixture of techniques further enhances the ability to detect problems.
