Equipment Maintenance

Here is a guide for maintaining your equipment

1. Read the User Manual.

We obviously have a lot of experience with our own equipment and how our customers use it, we use a lot of other plant equipment in our manufacturing, shop and office facilities so we thought we would

2. Use the right equipment for the Task
Using the right equipment to complete a task prevents unnecessary wear and tear on machinery and helps get the job done in the best possible way. Suppliers usually need to get in touch with you and advise you on purchasing the best equipment for the job at hand, as well as offer custom designs and sizes to meet your needs.

3. Getting to Know Your
Machines Before using any equipment, make sure you and any other operators know how it works and what it is for. If possible, do a test run. You should also consider the age of the device, its expected lifespan, warranty information, and any known issues and solutions. This will ensure it is used in the correct way to avoid breakage and ensure safety, and you will know what to expect from it and if it is falling short of those expectations.

4. Periodic Inspection
Periodic inspections of equipment can reveal inconsistencies and problems that may go unnoticed in day-to-day use. Repair or replacement can resolve before the problem worsens and causes equipment damage or becomes unsafe. Depending on the type of equipment, a periodic thorough inspection by a qualified technician may be required.

5. Perform regular maintenance according to a
plan When something goes wrong, it is usually imperative that it is fixed quickly and correctly. Regular maintenance can avoid large unnecessary costs. We've found that creating a simple maintenance schedule to note what's been serviced, when, and when it's next due is a really useful thing for keeping track of maintenance.

6. Replace Parts When Necessary
With equipment that gets a lot of use, the smallest parts wear out and need to be replaced to keep them performing at their best. It's best to swap them out as soon as they need to be replaced, as this often prevents damage or wear and tear to other parts.7. Clean After Use
Cleaning equipment after use, particularly equipment used for concrete or mud and debris, prevents excessive buildup on moving parts that can lead to breakage or loss of motion.

8. Repair and Refurbish Instead of Replacing
When your computer is starting to look tired and not performing as well as it did the day you bought it, it's tempting to just go for it and replace it. However, some providers offer a repair and recovery service to get you back in tip-top shape.
