Preventive maintenance is a planned schedule, that consists of different services that need to be performed at a certain period of time in order to prevent frequent failures and breakdowns. The main goal of preventive maintenance is to prevent the failure of equipment before it really happens. It's designed to enhance and preserve the reliability of equipment by replacing worn components before they actually fail. Preventive maintenance includes, but is not limited to oil changes, partial or complete overhauls at certain periods, lubrication, equipment checks and more. Additionally, the technicians at our repair shop have the necessary tools to record equipment deterioration, so they know if certain worn parts need repair or replacement before they cause system failure. Modern technological advances in tools and equipment for diagnosis and inspection also contribute to even more effective and accurate equipment maintenance. The ideal preventive maintenance program would avert all equipment failure before it happens.

There are a lot of misconceptions regarding preventive maintenance. One example is that preventive maintenance is very expensive. According to this misconception, it would cost way more for regularly scheduled maintenance than it would cost to operate equipment until it is absolutely necessary to be repaired. For some components, this might be true, but the cost is not the only thing that should be compared. A lot of people forget the long-term savings and benefits associated with preventive maintenance. If there's no preventive maintenance, the costs for lost production time from unscheduled equipment breakdown will be sustained. Moreover, preventive maintenance will lead to the increase of saving because of the effective system service life.

Some of the long-term benefits of our preventive maintenance include:

  • Decreased cost of replacement
  • Better spares inventory management
  • Better system reliability
  • Decreased system downtime
