John F. Kennedy once said, “The time to repair the roof is when the sun is shining.” These words are absolutely right, and they apply just as much to industrial machinery as they do to your rooftop; repair small issues with your Indramat machinery to avoid preventable downtime.
Don’t wait for problems to be problems
Don’t sit and wait for a big bad storm cloud to hover above your home to patch your leaky roof in the pouring rain. If you wait until a rainstorm to fix that roof, things will get wet and you’re stuck on a roof exposed to slicing winds and flashing bolts of electricity.
However, if you take the time to fix that leaky roof on a sunny day, before it’s even an issue, things are going to be much better for you and your home. You won’t be thrown into dire situation. You can stay cozy, warm, safe, and dry when the rains set in.
When Kennedy said this, he wasn’t talking about a drip in the White House roof. He was talking about fixing a potential problem before it becomes problem. A leak in the ceiling has no affect on a sunny day. But why wait until something becomes an issue to address it?
The difficulty is that people aren’t always proactive. There isn’t a sense of urgency to fix something that will be a problem in the future, because it isn’t a problem at the moment.
Repair your Indramat machinery before there’s a problem
Repair your Indramat machinery when the sun is shining.
Keep this quote in mind whenever you run routing maintenance and you see something that needs repair. Don’t think, “Oh it’s running fine right now, so I don’t need to bother fixing it. I’ll just wait until it actually needs to be repaired.”
It might be OK right now, but that could change suddenly.
Preemptive repair can help prevent, or shorten, downtime. When you add up all the costs associated with downtime, you will see that it is in your best interest to do repairs before the situation gets dire. Unexpected downtime is like being up on that tall roof, thunder booming, lightning flashing, and hail stones thumping you in the head.
