An effective preventive maintenance ensures improved availability, which leads to increased profitability, and in the long term also brings down maintenance costs.
We use the condition-based maintenance concept, which is based on optimizing the
technical availability by predicting the critical points.in our equipment and thereby
preventing problems before they occur.
Maintenance activities that are “unnecessary” are eliminated by systematically ensuring
that work performed guarantees improved availability at lower cost.
We also make sure that maintenance is a coherent unit, which involves secure access
to spare parts and a functioning network of maintenance service providers.
Maintenance carried out intended to assess and/or to mitigate degradation and reduce the probability of failure of an object.
Preventive maintenance can consist of CONDITION-BASED, PREDETERMINED, and PREDICTIVE maintenance.
This is a method designed to acquire information about the condition of individual machines in order to identify the appropriate maintenance action at an optimal time. Accordingly, condition-based maintenance requires the means to retrieve information about the condition of a machine. This usually involves various types of measurement techniques such as vibration measurement, thermography, ultrasonic measurement and oil analysis. The condition-based maintenance process consists of five process steps; data collection, analysis, work order, corrective measure and function control.
Refers to preventive measures performed according to calendar schedule or operating time, e.g. the replacement of oil, belts, clutch discs and other wear parts. The term also includes scheduled overhauls where machinery and components are taken apart for inspection.
According to the standard, predictive maintenance involves identifying a fault during its development period. It is a form of condition-based maintenance. With today’s technology, there is usually some kind of smart monitoring system that analyzes and processes the measurement data. This makes it easier to e.g. determine when it’s time to replace a bearing or the oil in a unit.
The predictive maintenance principle can naturally also be used with recurring condition monitoring, such as visual inspections or collecting measurement data for subsequent analysis and a decision on scheduled, predictive maintenance.
The purpose of predictive maintenance is simply to forecast the best time to e.g., replace a unit in order to exploit its full service life.
