HERFORD, GERMANY — PDS GmbH, a global provider of precision motor spindles, expert engineering and support, and repair services in Herford, Germany, has announced that it will attend LIGNA 2023, the world’s leading trade fair for the woodworking and wood processing industry. This year’s event will occur from May 15–19, 2023 at the Hannover Exhibition Center, Germany.
“LIGNA is the premier event for the woodworking and wood processing industry,” said Robert Turk, President of PDS. “We’re excited to see our customers and introduce ourselves to those requiring comprehensive spindle solutions for their machine automation and robotic processes.” PDS GmbH provides manufactured spindles, and expert in-house repairs and rebuilds of all spindle makes and models.
PDS GmbH invites LIGNA guests to visit them in Hall 15, Stand D21, during the five-day event at the Hannover Exhibition Center. PDS’ spindle engineering and repair experts will be on hand to answer questions and demonstrate two new PDS services vital to maintaining a preventive spindle maintenance program: the VibeAidSM vibration analysis service and the Spindle Health Monitoring System.
PDS’ VibeAidSM vibration analysis service provides real-time performance data that helps predict and prevent spindle failure by detecting vibrations that indicate problems that may lead to unexpected breakdowns or premature spindle failure. With the protection of VibeAidSM, PDS technicians will travel onsite to perform expert vibration analysis and troubleshooting on spindles. This onsite evaluation provides a comprehensive baseline report for spindle functionality. Periodic return preventative maintenance visits reveal spindles at-risk or impending breakdowns. Using onsite diagnostic tools and remote technologies, PDS spindle health monitoring services provide further real-time discovery for predictive repair management.
PDS’ spindle experts will also demonstrate how to supplement the protection of its VibeAidSM vibration analysis service with its PrecisionCareSM extended warranty program. PrecisionCareSM provides an unprecedented two-year warranty on spindle repairs, complete with an additional Spindle Health Monitoring System. This system continuously monitors a machine for problematic vibrations and is far more effective than periodic maintenance in predicting and preventing untimely breakdowns and costly downtime.
