6 tools for forecasting impending failures

Time is money for manufacturers, which is why it’s important they foresee impending equipment failures.

Using test tools to regularly measure key indicators on critical equipment helps technicians uncover the root causes of emerging failures, and in turn helps them minimize downtime, deploy key personnel and store the right spare parts.

The following test tools are crucial for diagnosing equipment:

Monitoring tools vary in complexity, and many facilities mix and match depending on their equipment and scale of operations. What’s unique is technicians are repurposing preventive tools that have traditionally been used for proactive troubleshooting.

Preventive maintenance measurements aren’t that different from proactive tests. You’re essentially looking for signs of potential failures. But when it comes to taking preventive measurements related to failure modes, the following actions become important:

  • Identify potential failures and related key indicators.
  • Determine what measurements reduce the likelihood of problems.
  • Find out how often equipment needs to be measured.
  • Track the results, watch for trends and initiate repairs as needed.
  • Use one data analysis system, such as Fluke Connect, so technicians and managers share the same equipment lists, histories, reports and work orders.

Quick tips for preventive maintenance

Before you start using test tools for preventive maintenance, make sure you understand the limitations of each tool and the safety precautions that go along with it.
