Condition monitoring

Condition monitoring

If smart plastics are used for condition monitoring, they immediately report any unexpected operating states, switch off the system, or emit an alarm. Industrial manufacturers use this function to minimise system failures and downtime.
Do you want to use machines, components, and resources effectively with all the available digital advantages? Would you like to use smart plastics® to pursue a practical, cost-efficient method of promoting digitalisation in your company?
