Plan for Success with Preventative Maintenance for Your Industrial Oven: Part 1

Posted: Feb 19, 2019 | Categories: Preventative Maintenance

Preventive Maintenance

Wear and tear on equipment happens in the busy world of manufacturing and can lead to equipment failure and costly downtime if a scheduled maintenance program is not in place. The cost of repairing equipment may not seem like much on the surface. Even at $200 per hour, a full day of repairs would only cost the company $1,600. But the true downtime costs can add up quickly when factoring in labor costs and production downtime. As Frain Industries points out, a food packaging line will cost $35 for every minute it is stopped. For larger or more complex products, the cost is even higher.

Just as with other equipment in the manufacturing world, regularly scheduled preventative maintenance service on your industrial oven is key to maintaining peak performance for your application and minimizing downtime for repairs. Regular maintenance programs strive to avoid untimely repairs that lead to lost production time and profit.
