One of the objectives of MRO is to approach maintenance and repair as a proactive endeavour. When maintenance professionals are forced to be reactive to equipment issues, the result is usually expensive repairs and extensive downtime — not a good combination.
The problem is, with so many companies struggling to keep up with a greater workload and fewer personnel, doing a preventive maintenance audit on your own is not always feasible.
The company has an on-site preventive maintenance service featuring a needs-based audit customized to the challenges of each company. The results are increased quality and productivity, minimized downtime and leakage, safer plants, longer part life, and documented and validated cost savings. All of these together can create a positive impact to your bottom line.
There are three main steps in an industrial maintenance and repair audit:
- Henkel starts by meeting with the customer’s key personnel (maintenance managers, reliability engineers, training department, health and safety) to understand the current maintenance culture and practices, and listen to concerns. The objective is to look for ways to reduce or eliminate chronic failures to make their job not only more productive, but hopefully easier.
- Next, Henkel conducts a plant survey to analyze equipment problems and challenging areas, while also identifying new opportunities to improve safety and efficiency.
- Once this survey is completed, Henkel will create a customized modular training program to fit the customer’s specific manufacturing maintenance and reliability goals. This continuous improvement process will include identifying specialty chemical materials and machinery adhesives — such as threadlockers, thread and gasket sealants, retaining compounds and surface treatments — that can protect the customer’s facility and its machinery from abrasion, corrosion, breakdowns and other issues, extending service life and reducing costly repairs.
Contact Henkel to schedule an industrial maintenance and repair audit to expose these needless costs and the proactive solutions available before serious issues emerge.
