Machines at a standstill?

11-01-2019

Machines coming to a standstill is a true nightmare for any company. A stationary machine wastes time and can cause (part of) production to halt. A problem which has to be quickly resolved as it can cost a lot of money. But how do you prepare for this situation?

Reserve stock

A stock of spare parts is essential to avoid machine downtime. Should a part break then the amount of time a machine is at a standstill is minimalized as you are able to immediately replace the damaged part. Uncertain as to which parts you should have in stock? The specialists from JC-Electronics can provide you with insight.

Make a maintenance plan

Regular maintenance  ensures that there are less disruptions and greater safety on the workfloor. Machines perform better and longer with regular maintenance, saving you money in the long term. Make a maintenance plan for each machine and hang a maintenance card with the most important points in a visible place. In this way you will have a constant reminder of the ongoing maintenance requirements of the machines.
