Preventive Maintenance Reduce Downtime and Cost
Preventive Maintenance Matters
- Reduce downtime
- Reduce costs
- Improve press efficiency and production quality
Proactive maintenance efforts ultimately reduce downtime and costs by helping you identify potential issues before they turn into costly emergency repairs. Waiting until a problem shows up could mean hours, or even days, of lost production.
In addition, by keeping press clearances and perpendicularity (straight movement of the slide relative to the bed) within recommended specification, you can ensure the consistency and quality of your parts.
AIDA recommends setting up a regular maintenance schedule which includes daily, weekly, monthly, bi-annual, and annual PM inspections, in accordance with the suggestions outlined in your AIDA press manual.
