Customer-specific solutions with measurable results

Predictive maintenance with HELLER CDS

Task Setting

  • Fault diagnostics and predictive maintenance with CDS teleservice
  • Using test procedures to determine the condition of individual machine components
  • Data logging for continual assembly-specific recording of machine performance
  • Characterisation, analysis and comparison of machine properties

Project scope and solution

  • Using CDS teleservice retrofitted on MCH 300 in 2010
  • Note: a total of 6 MCH 300 are used for the machining of large-bore pistons.


  • Reduction of unscheduled machine downtimes
  • On-time spare parts provisioning and scheduled repairs enabling cost reductions
  • Example: overshoot caused by contamination on Y-axis cover was detected in time and remedied in the context of a scheduled service action preventing a costly repair and loss of production
  • Heller and KS Kolbenschmidt have an active partnership that ensures the mutual exchange of information and knowledge building. This kind of relationship depends on trust.
  • HELLER CDS has proved successful in comparison with other products. That is because complex machines require a complex approach and in-depth analysis of the data gathered with CDS.
  • HELLER guarantees excellent spare parts availability. KS Kolbenschmidt is fully satisfied with HELLER service and the company's service base in Kirchheim.
