Video details

As part of its effort to adopt more flexible structures Gerdau, one of the world’s largest suppliers of specialty steel, implemented APM and Historian from GE Digital, and utilized GE Digital’s Industrial Performance & Reliability Center (IPRC) remote monitoring to detect impending equipment failure and to proactively repair defects. In just six months of a one-year pilot, the IPRC and Gerdau's team caught two major instances that prevented 130 hours of downtime in the Sinter Plant and avoiding costs of over $1.5 million. 

To avoid unplanned downtime, GE Digital's Managed Services can help you maintain your critical machines using model-based predictive maintenance technology.
