Industrial predictive maintenance


Finnish VTT (government research company) approached Etteplan with a problem – huge expensive machines that were used for printing electrical circuits (each containing more than 30 electric motors) needed predictive maintenance sensing when there is a problem with the motors in the machine. Etteplan proposed the use of LoRa as a platform for the sensing network solution. Cheap and durable, it is now integrated as part of the €5M machines.
