Emerson Industrial Automation forms new LifeCycle Engineering Services unit

Power Transmission Solutions's new business unit to increase overall equipment efficiency.

By ·

Power Transmission Solutions, a business of Emerson Industrial Automation, has offered a new model for enhancing the performance of material handling and mechanical power transmission systems with a new business unit providing Lifecycle Engineering Services.

Headed by Chris Carrigan, director, application engineering, the new business offers a range of services that includes diagnostics, education/training, system design, installation, monitoring and repair/rebuild. The program aims to increase customers’ OEE (overall equipment effectiveness), improve energy efficiency and increase product output.

“Our businesses have always provided these discrete services, but when comprehensively applied, they provide more than the sum of the parts,” said Rob Fuller, product manager, services. “Mechanical power transmission and material handling systems are common denominators in manufacturing operations of every type, simply vital to production. If one bearing failure shuts down a critical segment, an entire process can be paralyzed for hours or days. Protecting those assets is vital, whether it means training a new maintenance staff member, monitoring torque on a turbo drive-train or a design review of a new processing line.”

The expertise at Emerson encompasses industries such as aerospace, aggregate, power generation and turbomachinery, oil/gas, metals/steel, marine, food/beverage and HVAC. In addition to its own areas of specialization, Power Transmission Solutions works with other Emerson business units in climate technologies, network power, and process management.
