If it’s not broke…

Everybody loves a good idiom. An idiom is a common saying that usually offers some useful words of wisdom; however, the advice doesn’t always apply to every single situation.

“If it’s not broke, don’t fix it” sometimes rings true. It doesn’t necessarily make sense to spend time and energy fiddling with something that already works well. You can put your efforts into something more meaningful.

This isn’t always true, though. Some things need your attention, even if they aren’t broken — like your Indramat motion control system.

…make sure it stays that way.

You can prevent unscheduled downtime through routine maintenance and inspection.

When it comes to machinery, you’re not so much fixing things that aren’t broken, you’re maintaining them to prevent them from breaking in the future. Indramat products are low maintenance, durable, and reliable, but at the end of the day, they’re still machines. Any machine with moving parts wears down over time, and they eventually need service or repair.

Regularly scheduled maintenance can keep your machinery running smoothly for decades, and help reduce the occurrence of unscheduled downtime.

Downtime is costly regardless of whether you’re anticipating it or not. However, unscheduled downtime is even more expensive because you don’t see it coming, and you can’t prepare for it. Regular maintenance and inspection of your machinery won’t necessarily eliminate unscheduled downtime, but it can greatly decrease the likelihood that something will unexpectedly go wrong.

Maintain your Indramat system to avoid preventable downtime

“If it’s not broke, don’t fix it” is sound guidance for something like a cup or a stick, but it’s not great advice for something like industrial machinery.

Just because something is working right now doesn’t mean that it will be working tomorrow. And unlike a cup that will just dribble milk on the table if it’s broken, industrial machinery can end up costing you a fortune in downtime.
