Grupo Gondi has ordered Voith’s OnCare.Asset workforce management software for its new PM 7 paper machine, which is currently being built in its paper packaging mill in Guadalupe, Nuevo León, Mexico.
Work on the system is already under way, and it is scheduled to be in operation in early 2020 (Q1). Once OnCare.Asset is installed, the level of data collection at the site will be the highest possible, and the mill operators will be able to understand their operation far better. OnCare.Asset will analyze the collection of new information and offer suggestions to optimize maintenance activities on a component-by-component basis.
"It allows us to easily monitor the performance levels of a variety of our paper machine components and provides us with information which we will use to develop appropriate maintenance plans," said Oscar Hernández, COO, Grupo Gondi.
For Grupo Gondi, ease of use was highly important to gather, organize and analyze performance information to understand the mill’s maintenance needs. In particular, Grupo Gondi found that OnCare.Asset’s intuitive controls and user-friendly database management interface meant that even employees with limited database expertise could also utilize the system.
"We’re pleased to partner with Grupo Gondi on this installation. OnCare.Asset will easily facilitate the maintenance management of this paper mill – from planning, servicing and documentation through cost control, to spare parts management," said Jeff Gorges, Vice President Service Business.
