Longstanding SKF customer improves critical equipment monitoring and boosts mine production by switching to online data collection

A leading nickel mine in Madagascar had been using a manual vibration data collection process on its critical equipment for many years. Fed up with frequent breakdowns and subsequent costly unplanned downtime, the mine heeded SKF’s sound advice on the cost-saving advantages and added value of an online solution.

Since switching from manual vibration data collection to SKF’s online system, the mine has seen vastly improved critical equipment monitoring of 250 assets and 750 physical points. There has also been a significant reduction in the number of unexpected breakdowns and a subsequent shrinking of maintenance- related costs. In addition to increasing the level of planned activities, digitalisation is also boosting mine production as a direct result of extended machine and equipment availability and improved uptime.
