Vayeron Pty Ltd., an Australian Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) technology company focused on bulk materials handling, has signed Precision Pulley & Idler (PPI) as a Global Premium Partner. Headquartered in Mackay, Vayeron is growing the global distribution of its Smart-Idler product line, which provides real-time condition monitoring of conveyor idlers. Coupled with cloud-based software, it enables predictive maintenance to reduce unplanned downtime and avoid catastrophic damage to conveyor belts, according to the company. The nature of the remote reporting also improves safety by reducing the amount of time personnel are required to visually inspect rollers.

PPI is known for setting global industry standards for conveyor components and including the Smart-Idler in its product range is no different, explained Vayeron Managing Director and CEO Ryan Norris. He said Vayeron is seeing significant industry demand for the Smart Idler and they designed the Premium Partner Program to better align the company with the best players in the world. Any end-users looking to use the Smart Idler can work with PPI.

“We are excited to partner with Vayeron to add innovative sensors and data collection solutions to our proven idler designs to further reduce unplanned downtime and ensure maximum operating profits for our customers,” PPI Vice President of Marketing Dan Ricklefs said.
