Preventative maintenance for a longer machine lifetime
We’ve all been there – we’ve bought a used car at some point in our lives, and what’s the first thing you do – check the service report to see if it’s been regularly serviced by a reliable mechanic. Whether you have a vehicle or manufacturing equipment, they all require maintenance or repair at some point in their life cycle. If you don’t service them regularly, breakdowns can happen, and it can become costly reducing your machine’s value significantly. Not to mention, machine downtime equals a loss in revenue. The importance and advantages of regular, scheduled, and planned maintenance for your machinery guarantee a high degree of availability, efficiency, and process reliability.
Extending machine lifetime and reducing downtime
Machine tools are most likely the most expensive equipment in your factory. It’s also the costliest to repair or replace. Being proactive in your heavy equipment maintenance schedule helps prevent expensive downtime. Regular maintenance helps predict when failure is likely to occur, allowing you to find a solution to problems before they happen. Preventive maintenance helps anticipate change, wear, and tear. Corrective actions are taken continuously to ensure reliability and performance. PM involves regular systematic inspections, modification, and replacement of components as well as performance testing and analysis.
A successful preventive maintenance program extends equipment life and minimises unscheduled downtime caused by the equipment breakdown. Thorough product knowledge is invaluable when it comes to implementing an effective preventive maintenance program. Following factory-recommended maintenance intervals and keeping precise records is important not just for the economical operation of your machinery, but also to protect your warranty. Failing to maintain your machinery according to factory specifications and suggestions may void the warranty.
