Preventative Maintenance for Recycling Equipment
If vertical balers, horizontal balers, conveyors, and compactors aren’t properly maintained they can break down. Breakdowns cause long and expensive downtime for your business. Even more importantly, breakdowns and poorly functioning commercial recycling equipment are a safety risk for you and your employees.
All components, automation controls, and moving parts should be properly maintained and repaired whenever needed in order to produce efficiently. Scheduled inspections, maintenance, and minor repairs can reduce or prevent the need for larger, more costly repairs later. Failures and breakdowns that could have been prevented will definitely affect your bottom line.
Identify Possible Problems
The goal of preventative maintenance is to identify problems before they get worse. Identifying worn parts and components before they fail will allow us to make sure that replacement parts are readily available when needed. Additionally, proper preventative maintenance will increase the longevity of machinery and equipment, which reduces overhead costs.
Our Scheduled Maintenance Programs
Daily, weekly, and monthly maintenance helps to ensure consistent production and increased life expectancy of equipment. Preventative maintenance not only keeps the equipment running smoothly, but also maintains safety standards and makes sure that any legal requirements are upheld. We can inspect your equipment and then lay out a schedule to perform more inspections and maintenance. By planning your maintenance ahead you allow yourself extra time to plan for work stoppages.
Planned Maintenance Versus Emergency Repairs
Avoiding serious breakdowns and major downtime in your facility is necessary to maintain your schedule. All balers, conveyors, and compactors will need major work at some time. Planning maintenance means that the parts will be in, and that our technicians will be there to do the work. If you wait for equipment to break down, it could take a long time to get parts, or our repair staff may be too busy to help right then.
One Easy Way to Save on Maintenance Costs
Make sure your equipment operators are properly trained on how to operate the equipment. Never assume that an employee knows all the intricacies of any machine, or all of its safety features. With each new piece of equipment or overhaul, safety and efficiency should be stressed to all. Poor operators will end up costing your company a lot of money in the long run.
With our highly trained technicians, and our well-stocked parts department, you will experience the least amount of downtime possible when you need maintenance or repairs, and you can rest assured that you’ll have only the highest quality workmanship.
