Making Maintenance Matter

Maintenance in its various forms is an unavoidable certainty whatever your business. Here we consider examples of best practice from different industries and where new technology and a different approach can reduce reactive maintenance and increase productivity.

Taking the pain out of Plant Maintenance

Careful planning and close collaboration with suppliers are key elements in achieving effective plant maintenance, according to a leading UK industrial laundry firm Elis S.A

Their engineering manager discusses the benefits of considering your suppliers partners, how effect planned maintenance is vital and the secret to dealing with unplanned maintenance effectively is preparation.

Repair

Maintenance engineers are under increasing pressure to keep things running smoothly. The challenges that faced on a daily basis mean you need easy access to the right products, at the right time – giving you time to focus on what really matters. We offer flexible delivery options, technical support and solutions. Plus there’s DesignSpark – our online community for engineers to search or share tips and advice.

Prevent

You have planned maintenance strategies to suit your specific requirements. To support you we have an extensive range of products to assist you, no matter what environment you’re operating in. This includes the essentials you need plus products that will help prevent recurrence of a problem, so reducing the burden of scheduled replacement or worn parts.

Why is Planned Maintenance so important?

Maintenance is a key part of any business, no matter how big or small. In this modern, competitive world it’s more vital than ever to maximise the useful lifetime of any given asset to ensure that cost is kept to a minimum. In short, effective maintenance has the ability to increase profit and reduce downtime.

 

Real-time machine performance tracking

PerfTrak is an innovative turnkey system based on Internet of things that allows industries to understand the root causes of their performance losses and to gather, visualize and export information from any of their production facilities in real-time.

Predict

Forecast when a part is likely to fail and only replace it when absolutely necessary, but before a failure causes downtime. This approach avoids the cost and lost production time of regularly replacing parts that do not yet need renewal. There are a number of solutions available to help you gain additional information about your production equipment and we feature some areas here.

Predictive Maintenance within production line

As with any production line, it’s essential that the equipment is maintained, to avoid failure and costly downtime.
Using technology to monitor and predict when failures could be about to occur, or performance has reduced
