Preventive maintenance permits to catch in advance the components that begin to degrade or the occurrence of malfunctions thus allowing to plan interventions.
Data collection is normally based on the use of advanced technologies to obtain diagnostic information from the systems.
Being able to profitably apply preventive maintenance analysis techniques allows to:
- promptly identify anomalies in machinery and therefore avoid effects of economic, environmental and safety nature;
- control and reduce costs with the same quality supplied;
- ensure the possibility of extending and maximizing the life of assets and plants;
- measure the performance of the plant and carry out maintenance activities only when it is actually required;
A preventive maintenance system consents not only to anticipate the occurrence of a failure, but also to effectively direct resources, eliminate unnecessary maintenance activities and improve overall production efficiency.
