Preventative Maintenance

One of the major sources of concern for production facilities is unexpected downtime. Not only does unplanned downtime hinder a facility from meeting its production goals but the lost revenue from wasted time and labor is not insignificant. Instead of waiting until a crucial component in the production process breaks down, many facilities rely heavily on preventative maintenance to better manage the potential for costly downtime.

Benefits of Preventative Maintenance

To maximize the production capacity while mitigating losses, OSB mills often aim to boost their efficiency by controlling when their machinery is available through scheduled maintenance and service. This not only helps to improve performance, maintain quality standards and keep production lines running but also mitigates future unexpected breakdowns. A well-planned and operated maintenance program can also: 

  • Reduce the number & cost of major equipment repairs
  • Increase the life expectancy of machinery and equipment
  • Facilitate better utilization of staff/labor hours
  • Improve safety of working conditions
  • Help facilities meet crucial deadlines by reducing downtime
  • Identify & correct potential problems before they occur
  • Lower the frequency of emergency repairs
  • Enable better material & inventory management
  • Reduce fire hazards
  • Provide advance warning of possible system failures

Rigid’s client-oriented maintenance services aim to provide the right solution for the safe and profitable operation of wood processing equipment. Whether our services are planned or an emergency repair situation, our team has the extensive skills and training to keep your facility operating successfully.
