The aim for Power-OM was to use the energy consumption monitoring and profiling, in an easy to implement condition based maintenance (CbM) technique, and manage it as a mechanism to improve the overall business effectiveness, under a triple perspective:
This universal solution should also be compatible with the added value information that could come from existing sources (control) and sensors used at the machine, and jointly this will preserve current and future investment in the field. The project also researched the required infrastructure and new business model for maintenance services provider.
Power-OM was applied in machine tools, focussing on spindles and linear guides as responsible for the most common and cost-intensive downtimes. However the technology developed in this sense has high potentials across other types of machines.
