The site’s critical extruder (350HP) was exhibiting extreme vibrations associated with bearing wear.
During an initial investigation, the technician noticed noise around the motor bearings.
Following an in-depth discussion between Augury’s Customer Success, Reliability Team, and the site’s planner, it was determined the best course of action would be to replace the motor.
The planner scheduled the work to be done within a few days of receiving the alert, and following their repair, the machine improved to an Acceptable condition, ultimately mitigating a potential machine failure.
