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 ….!
