A preventive maintenance service identifies and prevents costly repair problems before they happen
Some people only think about the cost of preventive maintenance, and fail to consider all of the benefits. Preventive maintenance will keep your systems in top condition and can avoid future costly repair work. Preventive maintenance can minimize unplanned downtime, and enhances the overall performance of your CMM or portable system. Avoiding just one emergency service call easily offsets the additional cost of a preventive maintenance service.
Preventive Maintenance is more than just a visual inspection of your equipment, a preventive maintenance service includes a complete cleaning of the system, making necessary checks and adjustments, recommending replacement of worn parts, and identifying and preventing costly repair problems before they happen.
That is why it is so important to keep up with scheduled preventive maintenance. Always consider having a preventive maintenance scheduled with your next calibration service. If the equipment is being operated continuously on more than one shift, or is in a shop floor environment, a six month preventive maintenance service is a good idea to ensure top performance.
Keeping up with preventive maintenance regularly can pay big dividends in both time and money, and will definitely be worthwhile. It is a simple and easy way to make sure your CMM or portable system is running properly and protects your investment.
