Start-up offers to help manufacturers avoid downtime over summer

Manufacturers looking to keep normal services up and running over Christmas and summer can now do so more easily and affordably, according to Queensland start-up MOVUS.

Fulfilling back orders and preventing critical equipment failures is a constant battle for Australian manufacturers, notably during November, December and January with more extreme weather and fewer staff on hand against the backdrop of a peak demand for products, especially for food and beverage companies.

MOVUS has launched ‘Industry 4.0 Made Easy’, an offer to remove the headache for manufacturers for a fixed price per machine per month allowing customers to deploy predictive maintenance in a cost-effective way.

FitMachine is a condition-based maintenance solution that detects machine failures in advance using artificial intelligence and machine learning. The solution comprises an industrial sensor, industrial gateway, mobile application, analytics and trending dashboards, and artificial intelligence engine. The system automatically monitors equipment 24x7 and learns what the normal operation of machinery is to detect any abnormalities and alert the organisation before failures occur.

MOVUS says the units can be installed in under five minutes each, with no need for shutdowns, cutting or drilling, and training is provided.

The pack contains everything manufacturers need to get started:

  • 10 FitMachine sensors
  • 1 FitMachine Gateway
  • The MOVUS Dashboard, customised with company logo, with machine trending and alerts via email and SMS
  • Installation and training
  • Access to online help, training guides and support
     

“This offer is about making life easy for manufacturers during a seasonal time that is hallmarked by high product demand, staff shortages and weather extremes impacting equipment,” said Brad Parsons, Founder and CEO of MOVUS. “We’re giving people access to the latest technology but in a really easy, low-risk way. It’s a cost-effective solution that’s rapidly deployed, easy to use and easy to adopt.”
