Case Study - Analyst detects bearing failure from 2,300 miles away

When a bearing in a roll stand gearbox failed without warning, a major US specialty steel producer escaped major gear damage and lengthy downtime thanks to cloud computing.

This East Coast steel mill collects its own vibration data on a regular schedule and then uploads it over the Internet to a skilled analyst, located in Seattle, WA. In this case, the mill uploaded vibration data from two, eight-stand rolling modules on a Sunday. The mill relies on
the 16 critical roll stands to produce various size bars of specialty steel.
