Automated Commissioning

Technology leadership is at the forefront of every Waukesha Magnetic Bearings system. The development of Automated Commissioning reinforces Waukesha's commitment to staying ahead of the industry and meeting customer needs. 

Commissioning is traditionally done by the magnetic bearing supplier, but with the launch of Automated Commissioning the OEM or end user can commission their own solution, giving them full capability on the equipment they operate. 

Not only does this give control of commissioning and maintenance, it speeds up commissioning time and creates a consistent/repeatable process for WMB and customer commissioning engineers. Automated Commissioning can:

  • Eliminate OEM dependence on the supplier for critical service
  • Decrease the time for initial commissioning
  • Allow for less downtime for maintenance or issues in the field
  • Decrease time for training
  • Decrease the need for dedicated, specialized support
