Preventative Maintenance, Is Your Equipment Covered?

Published on 28 June 2019


As with all equipment, if well looked after, it will look after you. With regular servicing and cleaning, your machinery delivers fast, reliable and consistent results day in day out. Due to care and attention, you can prevent issues from occurring and we all know that prevention is better than cure (cheaper too). Stopped production is a costly experience that we could all do without. Whether you are a small or large sized manufacturer, Matcon provide advice, support, maintenance and training to suit all your needs. Find out more about our preventative maintenance programme with a difference.

What Do You Do When Production Stops Due to an Equipment Fault?

Depending on your situation, age of machinery, in-house technical engineering availability and access to parts this could be a quick, straightforward fix. Or it could be a costly nightmare and one in which the customers you supply are seriously affected.

Do any of these scenarios sound familiar?

  • If you have a maintenance plan, it’s as simple as a quick phone call to us.

  • If you have an engineer on site, they discover the fault and you have the spare part, it could be from approx. 30 minutes to a day’s downtime.

  • If you don’t have the part or a capable engineer on site it could take days or weeks to get back up and running, which is a lot of costly downtime.

  • If the part has to be shipped from over-seas… let’s not go there!

We understand that you want to be receiving good return on your investment and gaining all the benefits of e.g. an Intermediate Bulk Container (IBC) system from implementation onwards. Meet our team and begin developing an individualised plan that suits you and your facility. Our team of experienced Service Account Managers (SAMs) and how they can help you are in this previous blog.

Customer’s Top Tip

“We appointed a ‘Champion’ who over-saw the system installation and was the primary contact involved in our maintenance programme. Whenever we were unsure about how to do anything the right way, needed operator training days, new parts ordering or advice on a new software integration, our champion organised the site visits with Matcon so our production line continued to run smoothly throughout the process.”
