Running a manufacturing plant certainly isn’t like it was when your grandfather was alive. Truth be told, it might not even be like it was when the last person that had your job was working in your plant. With more automation, technology and pressure to optimize output, the health and lifespan of the machines on your floor are more important than ever.
ProAxion understands the challenges of keeping your plant in perfect working order and can help you:
We also understand the pride associated with producing a product that is “Made in America.” As we take the same pride in making our products - TACTIX™ - right here in the U.S.A.
Choosing the Optimal Maintenance Approach
Some of the more prominent approaches to maintenance and repair in the industry - as well as details on what sets them apart - can be found here: Include link to this page:
The most important part of establishing a thorough, successful, efficient maintenance plan is understanding that there are certain situations for which each approach is the most beneficial. It is not “one-size-fits-all,” because many companies develop their own maintenance goals.
How Do You Handle Equipment Failure?
Corrective maintenance is properly defined as “any maintenance performed to return equipment to a proper working order.” So, whether you are faced with equipment that has suddenly failed or that has been “run-to-fail” (i.e, Reactive Maintenance), your facility is negatively impacted.
You are not alone in dealing with dreaded downtime. Factories around the world are susceptible, especially when you consider that more than 90% of machines in those plants are not network-connected, and the vast majority are more than 15-years-old.
Industry 4.0 is touted as the solution for addressing downtime challenges. We often hear of using vibration and temperature data to perform predictive maintenance for rotating machines. While it’s a simple concept, historically it is a complex and expensive in practice. But, what if it wasn’t?
Taking You to ZERO Downtime
Fortunately for those of us in manufacturing, there is a maintenance strategy that:
Identifies the probability of failure
Identifies the most common failure causes
Provides the most cost- and time-effective solutions to prevent or rapidly remedy these failures
Reliability-centered maintenance (RCM) can achieve them all. Systems maintained via RCM can experience up to 40% more up-time than those relying simply on preventative maintenance.
Couple ProAxion’s focus on RCM with Total Productive Maintenance (TPM), and you have begun on the road to ZERO DOWNTIME.
