Stamping Press Preventive Maintenance

Preventive Maintenance (PM)

  • Requires everyone in the organization to make sure equipment is working efficiently.
  • Total personnel involvement means everyone working together as a team.

Why is Preventive Maintenance (PM) Necessary?

  • Reducing downtime (planned and unplanned)
  • Improved quality production
  • Increasing machine efficiency
  • Lower cost for maintenance and materials
  • Gain a competitive advantage over competitors

The PM inspection encompasses all components of the press:

  • Machine level
  • Parallelism
  • Perpendicularity
  • Overall Bearing Clearances
  • Slide Guiding Systems (gibs and counterbalances)
  • Clutch and Brake System (stopping time)
  • Pneumatic, Hydraulic, Electrical, and Lubrication Systems

Block times for press inspections:

  • Transfer presses (two days, two men, 32-36 hrs)
  • Progressive-straight side (one day, two men,16-18 hrs)
  • Gap frame (half day, one man, 4 hours)

Through experience and professional record keeping we can keep your inspection cost to a minimum, provide valuable feedback about action items for your equipment and give you an easy to read overview of overall press condition.
