Low Or No Maintenance Industrial Machinery
Industrial maintenance demands are different for every organization. This means that while the ways in which organizations approach maintenance and maintaining their equipment, one thing that remains the same amongst every organization, is that unexpected downtime is disastrous. Understanding this, every organization operates in such a way that they hope to avoid ever experiencing said disaster. How is this accomplished? Many manufacturing operations utilize a maintenance philosophy known as preventive maintenance. This method prioritizes a predetermined schedule of maintenance for every piece of equipment in their fleet, in hopes to potentially discover potential issues before they cause equipment failure. While this does improve the likelihood of extending an equipment’s life, it does also require more capital to be invested. Alternatively, many organizations have gone the way of predictive maintenance with the help of analytical technologies. These technologies utilize artificial intelligence to monitor the condition of equipment in real-time to predict what and when maintenance will be necessary. This method is much more cost effective than preventive maintenance and has proven to provide vast improvements in many industries. Hoping to learn more about these different maintenance methods?
