Gearing up for predictive maintenance

Gearing up for predictive maintenance
If predictions are correct, by 2021 25 billion devices will be connected to the Internet of Things (IoT). Here, Marek Lukaszczyk, European Marketing Manager at WEG explains where geared motor maintenance fits into this paradigm. Geared motor units are the drive technology heavyweights needed to handle a large amount of data, power and torque. They provide the necessary motion sequences in machines and systems, helping to ensure that production lines run smoothly. If there is a fault with a geared motor, the knock-on effects can be very costly for businesses.
