Predictive maintenance system will increase operating efficiency. Mercerising In Textile

First Andritz Metris for spunlace in India

Innovation in Textiles  |  Telengana, India

Andritz is to supply a Metris predictive maintenance system to Welspun Advanced Materials for the spunlace production line at its Telangana plant in India – a first for the country.

The integrated Metris platform developed by Andritz uses smart sensors as an energy self-sufficient and seamless support solution to monitor machine conditions continuously, even in areas that are difficult to access. As a result, analysis of the collected data allows clients to pinpoint every possible issue upfront and helps to enhance line performance.

The Metris predictive maintenance system will enable Welspun Advanced Materials to increase its operating efficiency by avoiding unexpected line shutdowns, enabling easy operation along the entire line and optimising maintenance organisation and planning.

The order follows successful start-up of a newly installed, complete high-speed Andritz spunlace line at the Telangana plant.

“Implementing a predictive maintenance system in a spunlace production line is a milestone in India,” said Cherian Thomas, Welspun CEO. “We are very proud to see our company as a forerunner. The Andritz digitalisation experts have fully supported us in the development of our project and offered tailor-made monitoring and analysis of our plant. This is opening up key perspectives for our future operations, even in the short term, by digitalising our maintenance procedures and checklist routines.”

The proprietary Metris platform adds significant value to the planning, operation, asset management, maintenance and optimisation of production plants and associated supply chains.
