Wind energy has become an increasingly vital component of the global push towards sustainable and renewable energy sources. As the number of wind turbines continues to grow, ensuring their efficient and uninterrupted operation is of paramount importance. One key aspect of this is the implementation of predictive maintenance techniques, which can help identify potential issues before they lead to costly downtime. Neuron Soundware (NSW) has developed a method for predicting and preventing mechanical failures in wind turbines based on the use of sound emission analysis and other physical parameters of wind turbines.

To ensure uninterrupted car window production, a European automotive supplier employed NSW technology to monitor critical equipment—oil-injected rotary screw compressors—using IoT devices and non-intrusive sensors. AI and Machine Learning assessed acoustic data in real-time to provide early alerts for potential failures, allowing prioritized inspections and cost reduction. Read the expanded case study here.

In this case study, NSW's AI and Machine Learning solution tackles wear in CNC machine tools. By employing Deep Learning and regression, the solution offers real-time, in-situ alerts for tool quality deviations, enhancing efficiency, cutting costs, and boosting productivity. Experience amplified profitability through zero scraps, reduced waste, and optimized operations.

Efficient port operations rely on the health of mechanical components in material handling equipment. This solution employed certified NSW IoT devices to gather acoustic and vibration data which, together with AI and Machine Learning analysis, provided actionable insights, enabling remote 24/7 monitoring, curbing unplanned downtime, cutting maintenance expenses, and enhancing equipment lifespan, safety, and reliability.

In this application, Neuron Soundware addresses industrial production challenges using mobile communication (4G and 5G) to enhance equipment performance. By acquiring and processing acoustic data from operating robots, their AI technology identifies unusual robotic arm movements. This solution ensures robust, cost-effective production by preventing damage and anomalies that could compromise the integrity of the production process, with multiple accompanying benefits.

A customer faced challenges in achieving consistent granular specifications during 18-hour milling cycles, resulting in quality issues and wastage. The NSW AI and Machine Learning solution was implemented to monitor the milling process, optimizing particle size and reducing production time by 2 hours per batch. This led to an 11% efficiency boost, reduced wastage, and enhanced supplier credibility.

Deployed to prevent the breakdown of components in specialized grinding machines, the NSW AI and Machine Learning solution monitors the process, preventing damage and maintaining correct viscosity of the material on the plant. Benefits include lower maintenance costs, fewer unplanned stoppages, reduced production expenses, increased productivity, and less material wastage.

In the context of a European automotive manufacturer, the use of a piston helium compressor in transmission gear hardening is vital for production. This study addresses the challenge of maintaining uninterrupted operations in the tempering furnace, as equipment failure could lead to production delays and scrap generation. Previously, entire compressors were replaced due to critical incidents. The proposed solution employs IoT devices and non-intrusive sensors to gather and analyze acoustic data. AI and machine learning algorithms assess compressor sounds, promptly detecting deviations from the norm as anomalies. Benefits encompass early detection of potential failures, real-time asset monitoring, preemptive alerts, streamlined inspection prioritization, and reduced costs tied to failures and scrap.

This case describes a solution for overstrained escalator mechanical units which provided real-time uptime reports and remote access. The solution entails producing utilization reports, enabling efficient maintenance scheduling, and providing essential operational insights. Benefit from cost savings through remote monitoring, benchmarking of operation and maintenance effectiveness, and access to vital machine data.

A collaboration with NeuronSW involves utilizing IoT for tracking acoustic emissions from bearings, mechanical seals, and reactor shells. NeuronSW manages hardware installation, data acquisition, ML algorithm training, and service deployment. The project aims to enhance reactor agitator monitoring, benefiting from NeuronSW’s expertise in acoustics, software, and hardware development.

Addressing additive manufacturing challenges, the NSW solution offers real-time monitoring of 3D printers using acoustic signatures, images, and physical data. This innovation detects material faults during printing, curbing wastage, enhancing quality, and boosting efficiency. Benefits include material savings, reduced post-production testing, heightened productivity, profitability, and supplier reputation.
