Preventive maintenance

GUNT-DigiSkills

 

The teaching of digital skills in training students and professionals takes an essential part due to the increasing digitalization of work processes in the context of Industry 4.0.

GUNT-DigiSkills learning projects can help you to meet the new requirements of education: digital skills are covered from basic to more advanced.

Nowadays, production plants have a 24/7 availability. Predictive maintenance enables this continuous operation.

Condition monitoring of critical components is part of the concept of predictive maintenance. The time of maintenance or replacement is thus defined. This learning project is based on » MT 174 Sorting plant including real operation processes.

Didactic concept

 

MT174 mit Getrieben

Three gearboxes are installed in the sorting plant, which will help us visualise the process steps of the entire learning project. The entire, closed process for replacing a gearbox covers 10 process steps, from notification of the maintenance action to the final report. The process is IT-supported, using a wide variety of digital elements and technologies.

Maintenance reporting
Condition monitoring & predictive maintenance

 

In more complex plants, systematic machinery condition monitoring within predictive maintenance is a well-established process. Extensive software applications exist to help manage machine condition monitoring. The process also includes the remote transmission of data and the generation of maintenance and service orders.

 

The maintenance notification is triggered:

  • time-controlled, i.e. as soon as the end of a maintenance interval is reached
  • sensor-controlled, i.e. when a limiting value is reached
Screenshots MT174 Instandhaltung

Time-controlled maintenance

An operating time counter in the PLC of the » MT 174 Sorting plant allows time-controlled maintenance of the three drive trains:

 

  • rotary storage table drive
  • conveyor belt drive with dosing hopper
  • drum screen drive

 

As soon as the end of a maintenance interval is reached, the plant stops and a message is displayed in the PLC.

Sensor-controlled maintenance

For monitoring the rotary storage table drive, the menu additionally offers a sensor-controlled version of the monitoring. For this purpose, the gearbox is equipped with an electric heater and a temperature sensor. The oil sump of the gearbox can be heated electrically causing the lubricating oil temperature to rise and reach a limiting value.

Supplementary experiments

Various types of damage to roller bearings can be precisely diagnosed through vibration analysis. The experimental unit » PT 501 Roller bearing faults enables fast and illustrative experiments with the help of a powerful software.

 

 


Order to service team
Replace gearbox no. XY/3 on plant no. XY

 

Auftrag Serviceteam
The plant management issues an order to the service team for the replacement of the gearbox. The order lists the exact name and position of the gearbox at the plant. In industrial production plants, the order issuance can be automated. The order is then transferred automatically from the plant control system to the service team by e-mail, for example. Sprechblase

 

 


Replacement of the gearbox

 

The primary aim is to keep plant downtime to an absolute minimum when maintenance is required. For this reason, the service team stocks a ready-to-install, tested replacement kit: spur and worm gear with drive motor.

Media Center

Before the service technician (here student/trainee) begins any work on the operational plant, preparations must be carried out based on technical documents. The technical documents, such as assembly drawing, parts list, assembly/disassembly instructions, tool and jig list can be accessed via QR code in the GUNT Media Center.

To perform the service process, the DigiSkills learning project offers two ways:

  • virtual way, visualized by augmented reality
  • real-world way, hands-on realization

Virtual by augmented reality

The augmented reality environment visualizes all the assembly steps. The following actions are required for access:

 

  • installation of the free Vuforia View app
Vuforia View » Google Play Store
» Apple App Store
  • configuration of the app
  • using the app

Real, hands-on

The entire drive train can be removed from the MT 174 Sorting plant. It is disassembled such that the motor and gearbox remain as individual units.

In case the gearbox should be disassembled into its individual components, it is necessary to switch to the corresponding assembly exercise MT 123 Spur and worm gear from here on.

 


Notification that the gearbox has been replaced

 

Meldung Austausch
Sprechblase After the gearbox has been successfully replaced, the service team immediately contacts the plant management so that the plant downtime can be terminated.

The spur and worm gear removed from the sorting plant is overhauled in general. After testing with proof of full functionality, the component is stored and ready for the next circuit of the maintenance process. Sprechblase

 

 


Scheduled disassembly of the gearbox and definition of spare parts required

 

During scheduled disassembly, the gearbox is disassembled and subjected to cleaning and inspection.

MT123 mit Auszubildenden

For the disassembly and assembly we use our assembly exercise » MT 123 Spur and worm gear. The kit offers a gearbox constructed in the same way as the one installed in the MT 174 sorting plant. In difference, however, the kit included in the assembly exercise is specially prepared for easy assembly/disassembly, suitable for classroom desks.

Next generation assembly exercises - Education 4.0

GUNT assembly exercises combine classic learning content with digital content and methods. They include hardware on an industrial level and a digital data package.

 

The GUNT Media Center serves as the platform providing digital data for tablet, PC or smartphone via the internet. Customers can access files and product information of selected products independent of time and place. The data includes CAD files as STP or DXF files as well as PDF files and videos.

Procurement of spare parts

 

We realize that a certain component from our gearbox has to be manufactured because it is not available in stock and procuring it externally would take too long. Due to time constraints, we decide to use additive manufacturing.

Ersatzteilfertigung

The students access the GUNT Media Center via QR code and check the available data for this gearbox. They identify the required part with the help of the included parts lists and single-part drawings. For 3D manufacturing, the STP file included in the GUNT-Media Center is the basic document. A common 3D printer, e.g. GUNT laboratory 3D printer, can be used for this purpose.

3D Druck

The students are concerned with the work order for 3D printing, learn which data must be provided and get a general overview of additive manufacturing itself. The students acquire information about the materials used in 3D printing, manufacturing tolerances, strength and limit stresses, additional work required, etc.

 

 


Scheduled reassembly of the gearbox

Functional test for quality assurance

 

After successful reassembly, the gearbox is subjected to a functional test under real conditions:

  • over a certain period of time
  • under certain loads
MT173

In order to complete the entire process in class practically as well, we use » MT 173 Test stand for gears.

 

The rebuilt gearbox is placed in the test stand, including positioning and fitting of protective covers. A PLC with touch screen is used for control and offers many supporting menus to conduct tests, display test results and graphical aids for the mechanical structure.
