Optimizing production line efficiency is essential to maximize output and increase profitability. Product inspection systems are often designated as Critical Control Points (CCP's). If the equipment fails, manufacturers face a risk of significant unplanned downtime resulting in reduced output and lost revenues. Preventive Maintenance programs can reduce the risk of unplanned downtime by ensuring parts and systems are overhauled, refurbished or replaced before they break down.
Preventive Maintenance Plans from METTLER TOLEDO Service provide regular check-ups for your product inspection systems throughout the life of the equipment to ensure outstanding performance is attained at all times. Through the systematic inspection of equipment and the documentation of recommended actions, a proactive Preventive Maintenance program can protect valuable assets, reduce the risk of downtime and minimize associated costs.
According to Mintek,1 "A company can save between 12-18% using preventive maintenance over reactive maintenance" and "every dollar spent on preventive maintenance will save you five dollars on other expenses." It is clear that investing in a care contract to look after your product inspection equipment can deliver tangible benefits and cost savings.
Consider a scenario where Preventive Maintenance has not been implemented and product inspection equipment fails unexpectedly, resulting in the stoppage of an entire production line. Some of the resulting disruption and recovery costs may include:
These costs can quickly ramp up, far exceeding the costs of a Preventive Maintenance plan that in all likelihood would have identified the issues before they became a problem.
Investing in a Preventive Maintenance programme delivers real cost savings and benefits enabling:
Benefits of Preventive maintenance extend beyond the cost savings listed above. For example, worker safety could also be improved because skilled METTLER TOLEDO service engineers may be able to identify and mitigate any potential safety issues with your product inspection equipment. Also, taking proper care of your equipment can support compliance with Weights & Measures legislation, HACCP/HARPC, industry standards/regulations and retailer codes of practice.
