The SmartSpiral Monitoring System

The SmartSpiral Monitoring System from Ashworth Bros., Inc., is an innovative application that provides real-time remote monitoring of multiple spirals at different locations. Downtime in manufacturing wreaks havoc on production standards. It’s estimated that almost every factory experiences as much as a 20% loss due to downtime, adding up to thousands of dollars in revenue loss.

Food processing companies rely on the SmartSpiral Monitoring System to plan and prioritize maintenance costs, identify performance issues, prevent failures, and reduce repair costs. SmartSpiral’s easy-to-use technology makes production management easier and can be accessed via computer, tablet, or smartphone. 

By alerting plant engineers and managers with notifications regarding potential system failures, SmartSpiral ensures peace of mind by predicting problems before they occur. Alarm notifications include identification of potential fault, the date and time that an issue was detected, and the location of the facility.
