A Steel Manufacturing Plant Produces Construction Grade Rebar. 24 Hours a Day, 7 Days a Week, Scrap Metal is Converted into Steel. Each Year the Plant Produces 1.1 Billion Pounds of Steel Rebar Used in Concrete. That’s Enough Rebar to Circle the Globe.
Asset: Wire Compactor
Dependent upon machine uptime.
Pressure cylinders within the compactor fail to control compression and speed causing problems in binding the coil.
Equipment failure occurs in the final stage of production causing the entire line to stop, can you say bottleneck?
Critical asset unequipped with sensors to produce data.
