Why You Need a Maintenance Plan for Manufacturing Equipment

The Importance of a Maintenance Plan for Manufacturing Equipment_Compressor-Station_Parker Gas Separation and Filtration EMEAIn a manufacturing facility, it is essential that equipment runs at optimum performance, not only to maintain production but also ensure staff safety and product quality. In many cases, when equipment fails, it is due to the fact that the correct service intervals have not been met and/or replacement parts installed are not in line with genuine original manufacturer's specification. 

By employing a scheduled service plan, approved by the original equipment manufacturer, maintenance and operation managers can rest assured that equipment and systems run smoothly. This blog discusses the benefits of implementing a scheduled maintenance plan as well as the importance of choosing the right equipment to ensure uninterrupted production.

Benefits of a maintenance plan 

  • Significantly reduce the probability of catastrophic equipment failure.
  • Prevent major repairs by catching issues early.
  • Extend system and component life.
  • Reduce insurance claims.
  • Ensure worker safety.
  • Reduce energy costs by ensuring machinery runs at maximum efficiency.
  • Prevent costly, unscheduled repairs.
  • Identify parts that need to be replaced before a breakdown occurs.
  • Eliminate delayed shipments due to production interruptions.
  • Forecast equipment upkeep costs.
