Implementing and adhering to a preventative maintenance plan is the number one recommendation to improve the lifespan of your equipment. Routinely cleaning, inspecting, replacing worn components, and calibrating machines ensure equipment is working the way the manufacturer intended. Scheduled maintenance will also reduce downtime, increase lifespan, and improve safety.
Having to service a machine during working hours often leads to productivity losses and missed shipments. Verifying components are sharp, checking fluid levels and air filters, and inspecting for worn or damaged parts ensures your packaging line is operating at its peak efficiency. By regularly servicing and maintaining your equipment, the cost of downtime will be reduced.
Parts are designed to wear out over time, but if they are not serviced or replaced, critical elements of the machine can be damaged. Routine checks by equipment operators or certified technicians on the cleanliness and functionality of the machine will help identify potential problems and prevent equipment breakdown.
Making sure equipment is properly maintained improves employee safety. Failing machines can put employees in hazardous situations but can be prevented through routine equipment checks. Machines’ electrical and safety features need to be properly checked by a certified technician routinely for your facility to continue to be a safe work environment.
