Powelectrics IIoT technology helps Fuchs deliver the benefits of digital transformation to its customers

The Task

Fuchs Lubricants, the world’s largest independent lubricant manufacturer, services over 100,000 customers. It has used Powelectrics’ IIoT kit in various applications. One customer manufactures diesel propulsion systems. It was crucial they understood lubricant usage patterns and that they never ran out of essential hydraulic and compressor oils.

The Solution

Powelectrics’ remote monitoring technology gives regular data and low level alerts to both Fuchs and their customer via Powelectrics’ MetronView cloud, eliminating run-outs and improving management understanding of how and when lubricant is consumed.

The Result

Powelectrics kit now eliminates unplanned stoppages due to run outs and helped identify poor production practice and maintenance issues. Fuchs have retained an important customer by using technology to add value to their service and differentiate themselves.
