Thermal Technology in Manufacturing 

Thermal imaging technology is an indispensable tool in modern manufacturing facilities. By harnessing the power of infrared imaging and sensing technologies, these facilities can efficiently monitor and detect temperature variations in machinery, equipment, and critical processes. SmartIR takes thermal technology to the next level, leveraging a generative AI-powered algorithm to provide real-time identification of potential mechanical and electrical asset issues, such as overheating, mechanical stress, or abnormal energy consumption. The technology enables a proactive and predictive approach to asset reliability and, in doing so, greatly minimizes operational downtime, employee safety incidents, and equipment failures. The integration of thermal imaging in manufacturing facilities enhances asset reliability, improves operational productivity, and better informs employee safety measures, making it an invaluable asset in the pursuit of efficient and sustainable manufacturing practices.

Why SmartIR?

SmartIR provides continuous conditioning and performance monitoring for critical mechanical and electrical assets in manufacturing operations, including motors, bearings, gearboxes, ovens, and more. With SmartIR, organizations are able to ensure that assets perform optimally and are instantly alerted to condition anomalies detected through the software. SmartIR is also a critical tool for early fire detection and other employee safety hazards.

Using SmartIR in Manufacturing Facilities


SmartIR allows organizations to optimize motor performance and enhance associated safety measures in their manufacturing operations. Leveraging a continuous stream of temperature datapoints from thermal cameras and sensors, SmartIR continuously monitors the condition and performance of motors. SmartIR leverages its proprietary algorithms to identify temperature anomalies and sequential temperature changes, comparing the temperature readings against normal operating temperatures. In doing so, SmartIR streamlines the predictive maintenance and performance optimization of motors throughout a manufacturing operation. performance optimization of motors in conveyance systems, pumps and compressors, packaging machinery, and more.

SmartIR users thermal imaging and sensing technology to identify temperature anomalies in conveyor belts, indicating potential issues such as abnormal friction, blockages, or overheating. SmartIR establishes a baseline thermal profile for a properly functioning conveyor belt and compares real-time temperature readings to the reference data. Any deviations help identify and diagnose problems such as misaligned or damaged rollers, belt slippage, material spillage, over tightened belts, fire risks, or other imminent maintenance needs. By identifying these problems early, users can prevent equipment failures, fires, or other hazards throughout the manufacturing facility.

Using SmartIR in Distribution Centers

SmartIR quickly identifies  issues in electrical and mechanical assets before they cause a critical failure

In distribution centers and warehouses, handheld thermal cameras have been used by maintenance professionals for facility and asset inspections for decades. However, calendar-based inspections with handheld infrared cameras often miss failing systems or components and lack historical comparison data needed to identify assets that are wearing out and are prone to upcoming failure. This is especially true with complex assets in warehouses and distribution centers such as conveyor belts, motors, bearings, gearboxes, and certain electrical components. For assets that support critical operations and whose downtime is costly, continuous condition monitoring with SmartIR is the optimal solution.
