Production of expansion tanks at Flamco: up to 50 % reduction in maintenance


Flamco is the largest supplier of expansion tanks and mounting materials for expansion tanks. Flamco started using Cierpa OEE Cockpit in 2008, because manual measurements didn’t offer an exact and clear insight into the downtime of the machines. Cierpa offered the OEE calculations in real-time.

Cierpa OEE uses our sensors, PLCs, data streams and IT infrastructure. The best result is the reduction of weekly maintenance of 50%.


  • Reduction of weekly maintenance of 40-50 %
  • Reduction of turnaround times using SMED, Cierpa OEE shows whether these effects are permanent
  • Monitoring downtime after the implementation of changes
I’d like to use Cierpa OEE too
Please submit your information so we can contact you.

Results for Philips Lighting: reduced costs and increased sales
Philips is the global leader in the production of starters for fluorescent tube lights. Philips wanted to replace and automate the current measurement system, which was paper-based and used Access for storage, with a system that was less error-prone and time-consuming. A job ad in BN De Stem led us to Cierpa OEE.

Teams that discuss their improvements on a weekly bases
Our company already went through an improvement process when we started using Cierpa Kaizen. Our employees had many ideas on improvement, but it wasn’t always clear what the added value of those ideas would be. As a result many ideas received too little follow-up.
