Low Or No Maintenance Industrial Machinery
Maintenance, while an incredibly important part of any organization’s operations, can be one of the most difficult things to forecast and master. Part of this is because so many organizations are utilizing different maintenance methodology. Whether it be reactive maintenance, preventive maintenance, or predictive maintenance, manufacturers will draw upon some combination of these methods, although each strategy is not created equally. An approach that relies heavily upon reactive maintenance, for instance, will prove extremely costly in the long run, as equipment downtime will accumulate, repair costs will balloon, and equipment lifespan will be severely curtailed. Predictive maintenance is the most effective way to achieve optimal maintenance, drawing upon data and analytics to identify the exact right time that maintenance is needed — no earlier, and no later. With sensors such as gas flow measurement devices, predictive maintenance can detect potential maintenance issues through ultrasonic analysis, vibration measurement, and other performance metrics. For more information on how predictive maintenance is helping make the most effective use of personnel, inventory, and resource time, be sure to review the infographic paired alongside this post.
