Featuring the industry’s first, patented bottom-bearing wear sensor, the Ashworth SmartSpiral monitoring system allows access to multiple machines at multiple plant locations from a phone and tablet to continuously monitor temperature, belt tension, and cage power. Live data is collected and transferred via a proprietary application to a cell phone, tablet, laptop, or desktop computer—without having to use an intranet system. The monitoring system helps prioritize maintenance costs, identify performance issues, prevent failures, and reduce repair costs to improve performance and efficiencies.
According to Ashworth Bros. Senior Product Engineer Chris Trinch, “We designed our SmartSpiral monitoring system to help users run their spiral systems correctly. We monitor data from five different locations in a spiral. We take that data, analyze the alarms, and store that information, which is then sent to our customer, giving them knowledge that makes a real impact.” To learn more, visit PACK EXPO Las Vegas Booth N-23004.
