Sensor technology for predictive maintenance

Planned maintenance - less downtime

Prevent costly machine failures and optimize your maintenance and production processes: With the maierGROUP’s patented sensor technology, you continuously monitor the condition of your rotary joints. Live data informs you about performance, wear, leakage, and other parameters. The data is analyzed using artificial intelligence to enable accurate, predictive maintenance of the rotary joints. An important component for digitalization, Industry 4.0, Smart Factory, and predictive maintenance in your company.

Ideal for:

  • Paper industry
  • Plastics manufacturing
  • Nonwoven
  • 24/7 continuous operation
  • Plants with high operating costs
  • Machine retrofit for Industry 4.0

Your advantages for highest reliability


You increase your plant availability and enhance process reliability. Your maintenance requirements are significantly reduced.

maintenance costs

Predictive maintenance reduces maintenance costs and makes them easier to plan. Resources and maintenance personnel can also be deployed in a more targeted manner.


You can anticipate the maintenance needs of your rotary joints and intervene in time before unplanned downtime occurs.


They protect people and materials from accidents, such as leaking hot oil, gas, or fire.


With the data collected by the sensor system, you can identify optimization potentials for your plant and implement them in a targeted manner.


The sensors for your rotary joints can be easily integrated into the control system using IO-Link. The system is compatible regardless of the manufacturer.
