Abstract

Smart factories are supposed to provide an overview on the current status of installed production machines. In order to collect data, intelligent machine parts have to be designed. We present a method to monitor the condition of elastomer gaskets, which are crucial parts of many machines. The monitoring is done by a strain gauge, which is integrated into the gasket. This paper describes the overall concept of the monitoring system as well as the challenges by varying temperature and pressure of the sealed fluid on the sensors signal.
