Smartenance is successfully being used at Festo's plant in Rohrbach

The future of maintenance management

Always ready to use and up to date, Smartenance is bringing maintenance management into the digital age. At the Rohrbach plant in Germany, the mobile digital maintenance manager is used, among other things, to service a system with 17 robots. The “digital logbook” transforms Smartenance into a knowledge and communication platform for your maintenance team.

New system for the production of different variants

One of the biggest and most complex systems that is serviced with Smartenance at the plant in Rohrbach is used for the production of different variants. Since November 2019, it has manufactured several thousand different cylinder variants in many sizes and with different strokes, from the round cylinder DSNU and the compact cylinder ADN to the standards-based cylinders DSBC, DSBF and DNC. The average production time per cylinder is 25 seconds.

A total of 17 robots are used. Several thousand different cylinder variants are manufactured on the system.

Reliable and efficient thanks to digitalized maintenance

The 17 robots used in the system are regularly serviced by six employees who are responsible for a total of 120 maintenance tasks. The effort involved in documenting this massive undertaking is huge. The team relies on Smartenance for maximum reliability and efficiency in its maintenance tasks. Volker Neumüller, an employee in the Maintenance Processes division, recognized the benefits of digitalized maintenance and has been the driving force behind its use at the plant. Production managers can now define tasks more easily and quickly, and use images, videos or specific data sheets to prepare them so they are easier for employees to understand.

Positive feedback and further use

Volker Neumüller reports: "To ensure that Smartenance was tested on a broad basis, we defined a range of pilot systems, from a simple assembly workstation to complex production systems and assembly lines. The signs were good right from the beginning. In the mean time 106 users maintain and service 160 systems in Rohrbach and Wiebelskirchen. We continuously provide feedback for the further development of the digital tool.”Employees are constantly being trained in order to enable them as quickly as possible to service additional systems with Smartenance.
