What is industrial machine maintenance?

Industrial machine maintenance encompasses the procedures aimed at sustaining the functionality of industrial machinery and avoiding malfunctions. It includes routine maintenance, urgent repairs, and proactive measures to prevent issues in the long run. Sometimes referred to as plant maintenance, it specifically pertains to assets within industrial plants.

Why is heavy machinery maintenance important?

Within industrial companies rests a lot of pressure on the industrial machinery. The primary objective of heavy machinery maintenance is to minimize downtime, prolong the lifespan of assets, and enhance their overall reliability. Inefficient machinery not only consumes excessive energy but also results in material wastage and expensive periods of inactivity.

What types of industrial maintenance are there?

There are three types of industrial machine maintenance services that AREPA can provide: regular industrial maintenance, reactive industrial maintenance, and preventive industrial maintenance. Which one you pick depends on the serviced machines and your type of company.

Regular industrial machine maintenance

For regular maintenance processes, AREPA concentrates on inspecting each piece of equipment according to scheduled servicing tasks. We assess key components and maintain service records to monitor the condition of the equipment.

Reactive industrial maintenance

Reactive industrial maintenance is used after the industrial machinery fails. This can be due to malfunctioning, but also disasters like flooding or fire can be the cause of this type of maintenance. At AREPA, we help you make the right decision in this case to get your production up and running as soon as possible.

Preventive industrial maintenance

With preventive maintenance, you work with a regular schedule of industrial maintenance to reduce the risk of unexpected machine breakdown. Due to the regular schedule, you prevent your machinery from defects and/or malfunction due to contamination before they happen. It, therefore, enlarges the continuity of your business.

How does industrial machine maintenance work?

For industrial machine maintenance, AREPA conducts regular inspections and scheduled servicing, utilizing diagnostic techniques to identify potential issues. We follow maintenance schedules, performing tasks such as lubrication and deontamination to uphold machinery integrity. Diagnostic tools and techniques are used to identify the root causes of machine malfunctions. And with the help of detailed records of maintenance activities, including inspection reports and service history, we always have the latest information to work with.

What are the benefits of industrial machine maintenance

If you make good use of industrial machine maintenance, it will bring you the following five benefits:
