WHO WE ARE

We are engineers who are passionate about helping industrial facilities run perfectly and profitably. our backgrounds are in mechanical, industrial, and electrical engineering, specializing in machine condition monitoring and energy management.

The key factor differentiating XRG is that we are able to combine our engineering expertise with experience in “fourth industrial revolution” solutions. If and when necessary, we can place sensors on key equipment, stream the data to custom AI algorithms that we write ourselves, and provide simple, visual feedback to stakeholders.

We are able to do this all quickly and affordably because our cost structures are geared toward serving mid-range manufacturing facilities rather than listed corporates.

What We Do

At XRG we have one goal: to help our clients run their facilities as profitably and efficiently as possible through the application of modern engineering methods and technology.

We’ve all heard the sales pitch that you should “digitize” your enterprise in order to stay competitive. This is usually promoted by companies that sell digitizing technologies at exorbitant prices.

However, we have found that modernizing your operation should not be rushed. 

Big, short-term interventions are expensive,

capital-intensive, and usually counter- 
productive, even though service providers won’t admit to that in their marketing material.

XRG works at the pace your production schedule allows us to work with you to optimize your facility and process – with or without digital solutions. This ensures changes happen with minimal interruption, low cost, high precision, and proper feedback.

Our goal is the make one improvement pay for the next, so that you never need to find large amounts of capital to pay for improvements.

Machine condition monitoring

Monthly vibration measurements are taken for critical or high-risk equipment. Over time, the data is evaluated by experts and state of the art algorithms to identify a machine’s condition and reduce maintenance, breakdowns, and production losses to the lowest possible levels.

ENERGY MANAGEMENT

Identify the most cost-effective energy interventions to increase process efficiency. Although this is a profitable endeavor, non-energy benefits such as increased worker productivity and satisfaction, increased competitiveness, and enhanced process control compound the simple financial benefits.

Beyond: 4IR

Every facility is unique. Where applicable, internet-connected sensors monitoring anything from critical production parameters to defects to indoor air and light quality, coupled with machine learning, have been proven to be very profitable cases.

services


In these three offerings we embed the following services:
- Audits of energy and maintenance procedures
- High-level management planning (maintenance, energy, water, production, etc.)
- Advanced statistical analysis
- Root cause analysis of failures and inefficiencies
- Best-practice data handling and storage
- Dashboards, visualization, and BI solutions
- Predictive analytics through AI algorithm development
- Intervention planning, and state of the art performance measurement and verification to determine the baseline, the difference the intervention made, and to close the loop and determine the efficacy of those interventions in an ever-changing production environment.
