Predictive Maintenance


Today’s condition monitoring systems detect damages only after they have occurred. Preventing said damages beforehand is not possible. At best, they warn the user in advance to plan maintenance work without incurring high downtime costs. In many cases, however, the warning comes too late to take effective action.

With the HCP Sense sensor bearing, two crucial improvements are possible that go far beyond mere condition monitoring. Firstly, lubrication-related bearing damage can be prevented by monitoring lubrication. Secondly, the sensor bearing provides the exact load data that is currently lacking for Remaining Useful Lifetime calculations, allowing early prediction of load-related damage. These two changes cover a large portion of bearing damage. For example: 50% of damages in machine tools are due to inadequate lubrication and 30% of damages are due to load events.

Our services in the field of predictive maintenance

Force measurement

The sensors of HCP Sense collect data on lubrication, wear and the forces acting on the bearing.

Sensor bearing without a sensor

By monitoring the lubrication and the acting forces, bearing damage can be prevented and the failure of the rolling bearing can be predicted at an early stage.

Retrofitting solutions

Our sensor bearing has the same dimensions as a conventional bearing and can therefore be easily installed in machines.

Process monitoring



With process force monitoring, you produce at the limit, but never above it!

For many production processes, the acting forces are decisive quality parameters. From the pretensioning force of a belt drive to the process forces of a machining process – the forces acting in the machine give a deep insight into the process taking place.

Today, however, these forces cannot be measured economically, because the design effort for the integration of force sensors is too high. HCP Sense offers a simple solution to measure the forces acting in the machine directly at the point of action and thus monitor manufacturing processes. Your advantages:

  • Increase the availability of the manufacturing process
  • Increase machine and plant safety
  • Increase efficiency in all kinds of processes (manufacturing, transport …)
  • Improve the quality of your products
  • Cost reduction due to higher volume output, less scrap, less downtime, and longer tool life
  • Early detection of wear-off
  • Predictive maintenance

Expert knowledge combined with unique measurement technology

Continuously variable transmission metal parts close-up

Whether in the field or on the test rig, in the development process, or in the analysis of existing products  – use the expertise of our rolling bearing experts coupled with our unique sensor bearing measurement technology to solve your engineering challenges.

We are happy to work to analyze the rolling bearings and process forces in your machines and your test setups.  We provide you with a deeper understanding of the acting forces, load peaks, vibrations, and disturbances in your machines. This helps to find weak points and optimize your machines and processes. Our service includes project planning, installation, implementation, evaluation of measurements, training of your employees and technical consulting.

  • We work with you to prevent design-related and operational failures, malfunctions, and downtimes early in the development process, or after commissioning by adapting the operating strategy
  • Overdimensioned bearings due to missing load data are a thing of the past
  • Increase the efficiency of your machines by operating them in the optimal operating range
  • Improve your eco-balance by reducing energy consumption and lubricant usage
