Low Or No Maintenance Industrial Machinery
Ensuring that the maintenance management strategy that is in place for a manufacturing organization allows it to operate at its highest efficiency is imperative. Easier said than done, as many unexpected issues will arise in manufacturing equipment. The worst of these issues, equipment downtime, can lead to other aspects of an organization’s operations being impacted negatively as well. In order to do avoid equipment downtime and guarantee that every aspect of a business continues running smoothly, these organizations must first employ the right tools for the job, which will likely require integrating new technologies and replacing existing components of equipment. These components, known as low or-no maintenance components, are technologies that help reduce the need for upkeep. One specific technology, known as ultrasonic clamp-on meters, are built with little to no moving parts, reducing the need for maintenance to ensure these parts continue operating at peak efficiency. In certain operations, such as water distribution, this can make all the difference. While this application may seem niche, there are many more instances of technologies like these creating value. For more information on those technologies, please see the infographic accompanying this post.
