Our client is a leading manufacturer of industrial products. The client’s Fluids division provides an integrated solution where strands of polymer are passed to the rotor which cuts the polymer in the desired configuration. The continuous usage of the rotor makes its blade dull leading to unusable pellets of wrong dimensions. This resulted in the wastage of resources and impacted the client’s revenue.
The main objective of this engagement was to identify the optimal number of sensors and the best positions to mount them on machines in order to detect the transition of rotor blade states from sharp to dull.
Achieved a 66% reduction in data and cost of sensors
Achieved an accuracy of ~100% and were able to clearly classify blades from the identified optimal sensor positions
Deployed solution on edge by developing a lightweight solution through computationally inexpensive features without compromising on accuracy for real-time inferencing
Sensor deployed on optimal position will be used for blade classification in the future
