We’ve all heard that prevention is better than a cure, but do you heed this advice when it comes to your packaging line?
The best way to keep your labelling and coding equipment running smoothly is to ensure that you have a structured routine maintenance plan in place for every machine that you use on your line. In the absence of such a schedule, you could put your line at risk of unnecessary downtime and possibly even equipment damage that is beyond repair.
It may seem like a waste of time and money to stop production to inspect and service your equipment – especially when everything seems to be ticking over nicely. However, without regular health-checks, you could overlook small issues that can soon snowball into serious and costly faults. You’ll then be saddled with the expense of large-scale repairs as well as extended downtime, which could mean late deliveries, missed shipments and unhappy clients.
Essentially, when you choose not to follow a proper and regular maintenance schedule, you’re putting yourself at risk of a breakdown that could cause serious damage to both your bottom line and your reputation.
At the same time, routine equipment maintenance is also useful for keeping your machinery operating at peak efficiency – and therefore ensuring optimal productivity on your packaging line. With regular inspections, cleaning and lubrication, you are more likely to prevent excessive wear and tear, and therefore extend the lifespan of your hardware investment.
