Unscheduled downtime can create greater issues than just damaged or unreliable equipment. Site closures and delays in progress can be extremely costly, so it is essential to have the necessary preventative actions in place to minimise the risk of downtime and restart production as quickly as possible.
Preparation is especially important when you rely on process equipment to perform your job. Though some work stoppage is inevitable, you can reduce the frequency of unplanned malfunctions with some forethought. That’s why it’s absolutely necessary to ensure that professionals are maintaining your equipment even before you notice a problem. Hydraulic Distributors can keep your equipment pumping by applying any of these three types of maintenance to your equipment:
·Scheduled Maintenance uses a maintenance schedule that has been previously developed for each machine tool, and is similar to a tune up for your car. It’s important to check your equipment at regular intervals to maximize your productivity.
·Predictive Maintenance involves performing maintenance on equipment before a failure would occur if the maintenance were not performed. This type of maintenance can help keep your equipment in top form before you even notice a problem.
·Preventative Maintenance ensures that the various and intricate parts of your equipment are kept in good working condition. Typical preventative maintenance tasks include periodic inspections, adjustments, critical equipment replacements, calibrations, and basic cleanliness.
With a regular maintenance routine in place, you should also organise your processes by creating checklists and systems designed to streamline all tasks. This will help implement equipment maintenance schedules more smoothly and reduce downtime.
Issues with downtime exceed the hassle and expenses of damaged or unreliable equipment; it affects overall efficiency, increases unnecessary costs, and diminishes competitiveness and reliability within the market.
