Low Or No Maintenance Industrial Machinery
Every manufacturing manager’s worst nightmare is unexpected machine downtime. In the hopes of reducing the amount of time that their organization must face without a critical piece of equipment, these managers must develop a maintenance schedule that fits the needs of their business. Preventive maintenance is a strategy that includes performing maintenance on each piece of equipment in an organization’s fleet at routine intervals throughout the year. The frequency at which machines receive maintenance is largely based on age and average run-time. The newer alternative to preventive maintenance is predictive maintenance. This strategy disregards a majority of the philosophies of its counterpart. Rather than having scheduled maintenance for equipment or machinery at different times of the year, this approach relies on information fed from each piece of equipment to determine when maintenance is necessary. With the help of low-or no-maintenance machinery and equipment, the data sourced from these technologies provide organizations with a much clearer representation of when maintenance is required. Once properly implemented, these systems are able to capture, report, and analyze the performance and external data that affect any piece of equipment’s condition. With this information, it becomes much easier to predict when any given piece of equipment will require maintenance and what specific maintenance it will require. This, in turn, can lead to greater efficiency and less downtime for critical pieces of equipment. Hoping to learn more about these technologies?
