The damage done by unexpected downtime is amplified when contending with just-in-time manufacturing and delivery schedules. Ensuring machines are always operating efficiently is a priority.
Heat, noise, and vibration. These are the hallmarks of productive engineering and manufacturing environments. They can also be part of an early-warning system that highlights impending problems.
The devil’s in the detail when it comes to keeping an operation running smoothly – and a closer look at something as simple as the oil used in machines can be hugely revealing.
Ensuring machines are always operating efficiently is a priority. The need to fit in with just-in-time manufacturing and delivery schedules means the damage done by unexpected downtime gets amplified. There’s no latent capacity waiting to pick up the slack, no spare stock ready to ship.
