Effectively maintaining and servicing business critical equipment is critical for all stakeholders.
Effective preventive reconditioning of your machines and other business-critical equipment is of great importance for the continuity of your business operations. Find out what preventive reconditioning is, why it's important, and how AREPA can help your business do just that. In this article we answer questions such as:
- What is preventive maintenance?
- Why preventive reconditioning of machines and installations?
- What is the advantage of preventive maintenance?
- How do you make a good maintenance plan?
- What can AREPA do for you?
- What qualifies for preventive reconditioning?
Over time, pollution in and on your machines and installations can cause failures or downtime. Preventive maintenance or reconditioning is used to prevent defects and/or malfunctions due to contamination of machines and technical installations before they happen. AREPA specialists can help increase productivity, reliability, and the overall life cycle of the machine or equipment through preventive maintenance.
By applying routine preventive maintenance, particularly technical reconditioning (cleaning the contamination that can lead to malfunctions), you prevent technical installations from failing and thus causing unnecessary operating downtime, which endangers your continuity. In addition, you increase the reliability of your machinery, reduce the chance of repair costs, and ensure minimum downtime. But there are more advantages to preventive cleaning of your machines and installations.
What is the advantage of preventive maintenance?
Preventive cleaning ensures that...
- you can continue to carry out your business activities with peace of mind
- the risk of failure of machines and installations is greatly reduced
- the work safety of your employees operating the machines and installations increases
Therefore, our advice is to periodically have your machines and/or technical installations preventively reconditioned. Preventive cleaning is recorded in a maintenance plan. This plan is of great importance to detect and remove incipient pollution that can lead to disruptions and or outages at an early stage.
How do you make a good maintenance plan?
We are happy to give you a number of tips to set up a maintenance plan. Of course, our technical specialists are happy to think alongside of you!
- Map your machinery and installations. Keep in mind which machines and installations are most important for your business activities - place those at the top of the list.
- Make it clear what the weaknesses of each machine and installation are. This makes it clear where most of the attention during the preventive cleaning process lies.
- Create an plan for each machine and installation component - explaining how you can apply preventive reconditioning to prevent the most common malfunctions.
- Create a detailed description of the desired reconditioning action for each machine and installation
- Make sure that the right technical specialists are aware of the desired action(s) in time.
Evaluate the plan regularly. This way this is always up-to-date and you prevent working with an outdated plan. A maintenance plan must also be clear. For example, use a checklist where you can check off tasks or actions.
