MECATHERM Launches M-Care, A Predictive Maintenance Solution

MECATHERM, one of the world leaders in the design of automated production lines for industrial bakeries, presented M-Care at IBIE 2022. This new intuitive predictive maintenance application is designed for industrial bakeries using MECATHERM equipment. M-Care makes it possible to promptly detect anomalies on equipment and to guide operators and maintenance teams on the first level checks to be carried out. The aim is to prevent breakdowns and optimize the availability rate of production line equipment. 

Predictive maintenance, the objective of which is to guide operators, detect anomalies, and intervene early before an immobilizing breakdown occurs, appears to be a solution for the future that many players in the sector are looking into. 

 Thanks to sensors installed on the equipment, the M-Care application makes it possible to monitor the working order of the machines and to send alerts to the operators when detecting drifts that could lead to breakdowns. The application also helps guide them in solving the problem, first with simple checks and then with the intervention of technical support from MECATHERM, when necessary. M-Care analyzes the data collected and translates it into easy-to-understand information. With M-Care, any operator can intervene quickly and effectively by following the step-by-step instructions communicated by the system. The application is available on computer, tablet, or smartphone.

M-Care has three easy-to-use tools:

  • TUTO, to understand the equipment and self-train. The application provides operators with simple educational, step-by-step tutorials explaining the operation of its MECATHERM equipment, including automated sequences. This means that M-Care gives operators a better understanding of how their machines operate so that they, along with maintenance teams, can become more autonomous.
  • PREDICT, to anticipate breakdowns. Alert tickets are sent when a significant equipment anomaly is identified, informing the operator and other designated staff of the problem and its likely causes. These alerts are based on data that is interpreted, analyzed and processed by algorithms. They are then transmitted to the user.*
  • FIX, to identify and solve problems. The M-Care application facilitates first level interventions. When the operator opens an alert ticket, they have direct access to the set of documentation required to help them diagnose the problem and support them in resolving it. In case of problems, the application sets up direct contact with MECATHERM technical support.

 All new MECATHERM ovens are “M-Care Ready” and equipped with sensors to allow feedback of information. Ultimately, this predictive maintenance solution should equip 100% of MECATHERM equipment and complete production lines. The M-Care solution is also available as a retrofit for MECATHERM customers who wish to benefit from this service.
