Bearings with smart plastics sensors for predictive maintenance

Production monitoring: predictive maintenance

In the area of production monitoring whereby "predictive maintenance" of the bearings has been implemented, a module is not necessary.  The sensors can be operated as an isense stand-alone system that can be integrated and networked within the production infrastructure.

Do you have an idea for a smart project or do you need further information on the use of smart plastics?  Submit an inquiry for your smart project below.

Suitable sensors



Sensor for wear in drylin T linear systems

  • Predictive maintenance
  • Integrated into the liner
  • Signals wear of the liner in good time
  • Predictable replacement of the sliding elements



Wear monitoring with the DLW.W sensor

  • Predictive maintenance
  • A sensor measures the wear of the linear bearing in the drylin W linear guide
  • If the limit is reached, it sends a signal to indicate that the bearing liner should be changed
