EIT Digital's strives past "fix it when it's broken" approach, with predictive service for printers

In the current business environment, manufacturers rely on the so-called corrective ("fix it when it's broken" approach) or preventive (replace parts before their exceed their expected lifespan) maintenance to ensure performance and durability of commercial printing equipment. But these two approaches are increasingly inadequate for today's fast-paced economy, in which businesses calibrate production based on actual market demand and then need to satisfy it almost in real time. Predictive maintenance for printers, a new activity being supported by EIT Digital as part of its OEDIPUS High Impact Initiative, is taking an alternative path, focused on predicting, rather than correcting or preventing potential issues. Oc, together with Siemens and technology providers CEA are developing a solution which, analyzing sensor data produced by commercial printers, will allow to determine when a part, or multiple parts, are starting to fail, so corrective actions can be taken.
