MHS highlights Lifecycle Performance Services to keep automation at peak efficiency at Promat 2019

MHS introduces its Lifecycle Performance Services (LPS) division, a part of the company dedicated to maximizing uptime and reliability of automated systems, while making the most efficient use of maintenance resources.

CHICAGO (April 09, 2019) - At ProMat 2019 in Chicago's McCormick Place, MHS (www.mhsglobal.com) introduces its Lifecycle Performance Services (LPS) division, a part of the company dedicated to maximizing uptime and reliability of automated systems, while making the most efficient use of maintenance resources. At booth #N6359, attendees can see the company's complete lineup of services to maintain, support, optimize and modify systems for maximum performance and longevity.


"Today's e-commerce-driven supply chains cannot afford downtime, but the skilled labor necessary to keep them running is becoming increasingly scarce," says John Sorensen, senior vice president, Lifecycle Performance Services, MHS. "We combine a comprehensive service offering, the latest technology and industry expertise to deliver the reliable performance customers demand and reduce total cost of operations."

A recent Ernst & Young report highlights the challenges operations face transitioning to a more data-driven era, reporting that businesses do not know the contents of 54 percent of the data they collect. Rather than covering facilities in sensors, MHS focuses on the most critical assets and failure-prone areas to provide the greatest value in the most efficient framework. MHS Insights is the company's application of IoT technologies and predictive analytics to deliver targeted, practical insights to identify and resolve issues before they become critical problems.

Representatives from LPS will be on-site at ProMat booth #N6359 to guide attendees through interactive presentations of a variety of solutions and services, including MHS Insights, upgrades and modifications, supply and management of OEM parts, contract maintenance services and more.

Dynatect Automated Machine Safety Roll-Up Doors

Dynatect Automated Machine Safety Roll-Up Doors

Need to increase safety? Are you using light curtains? Is space a concern? Dynatect's Gortite® VF Automated Machine Safety Door combines safety technology, speed, and a physical barrier to isolate hazardous operations. Use of a physical barrier with safety sensors can save up to 30 square feet of manufacturing space. Using the ANSI minimum safety distance formula, the Gortite® VF Door limits the depth penetration factor and average approach speed, allowing closer location of the safeguarding device. Unlike light curtains, which can't contain process hazards, an automated machine safety door can isolate common workplace debris. This physical barrier is designed to contain process driven hazards such as weld sparks, UV flash, and light debris. Thus, the operator can maintain closer proximity to the work area improving ergonomics and productivity.
