Intelligence on Duty – How does PROGNOST Systems represents itself in reality?

PROGNOST Systems is an absolutely reliable partner for us

Since 1992 we have made use of the PROGNOST®-NT for continual online monitoring of 10 reciprocating compressors.
PROGNOST Systems is an absolutely reliable partner for us.

Michael Wilde, Production Engineer

A very reliable monitoring system

In the past we had some big incidents with this gearbox because it was very difficult to analyze the vibrations with spot measurements. The PROGNOST® system has proven itself as a very reliable monitoring system!!

Also the open communication with the PROGNOST team and Coperion was a big plus in this case.

This way, I want to let you know that we appreciate the open communication, involvement and quick response from PROGNOST ….!
