No one would ever say that routine inspection and service to keep your motion control system working properly is a bad thing. So why do people skip maintenance for Indramat machinery?
It’s difficult to prioritize things that aren’t causing problems when you’re constantly putting out fires. However, prioritizing maintenance for Indramat machinery helps prevent problems and keeps the number of fires you have to put out at a minimum.
Maintenance doesn’t belong on the back-burner
Maintenance is such a tricky thing. Look at self-maintenance, for example. Everyone knows that flossing your teeth is important, but not everyone makes a point to floss. Flossing isn’t difficult, it doesn’t take much time, and it can do a lot of good for your teeth. It isn’t until you get a jaw-dropping bill from the dentist’s office that you really start to prioritize taking better care of your teeth.
Flossing your teeth is the equivalent of maintenance for machinery.
Manufacturers know that regular machine maintenance is important, but they’re not diligent about maintenance. In the same way that neglecting your teeth will cost you in the long run, neglecting maintenance for Indramat machinery can lead to expensive problems in the future.
Here’s why regular maintenance is so important for your factory machinery.
Routine maintenance ensures that your machinery is operating as efficiently as possible. Regular maintenance for Indramat machinery helps you identify areas of improvement, and helps make sure that everything is working like it should.
Moving parts wear down over time; you simply can’t prevent normal wear and tear. Regular maintenance, however, helps reduce avoidable wear and tear on your machinery. It allows you to identify potential problems and correct them before they lead to a catastrophic shutdown.
Even a slight issue with your machinery can cause damage over time that could have been prevented. Routine checks on your factory machinery can help extend the lifetime of your system.
Again, you can’t completely eliminate downtime, but maintenance can help reduce preventable downtime. Routine maintenance and regular inspection for Indramat systems is one of the best ways to whittle down preventable unnecessary downtime.
The cost of downtime is more than just the cost of repair. When your machinery breaks, production stops, and every second of downtime costs you money.
