The Background

 The Background

April 2020 – Gill Sensors & Controls are proud to be part of the Condition Based Monitoring Program for one of the USA’s original and most successful manufacturers of Aerospace components. This company can boast all the major aerospace and defence contractors on their list of satisfied customers, including NASA for whom they manufactured components for a space program.

In order to maximise the economic efficiency of the equipment the company operates it is essential for the plant to be running 24 hour per day. As in many industrial settings, if a machine is down and time is being lost then the financial penalties are often very heavy. The team at Gill recently learned of an extreme case in the Pharmaceutical world whereby a gearbox breakdown of more than 30 seconds would cause lost revenues in excess of €5million due to the need to scrap a batch of Cancer treatment drugs.
