Even Henry Simon - one of the most robust and reliable machinery in the industry - needs a regular maintenance. Henry Simon offers a maintenance service for all product ranges. Henry Simon service experts ensure you get minimum downtime and maximum production in your plant by developing customized maintenance plans for each customer. We will give you comprehensive advice, work with you to plan the necessary work, and carry this out in a way that meets your specific needs.
Why maintenance is important ? Normal wear and tear can result in lower machine efficiency. Preventive maintenance assures optimal working conditions and conserves the life span of the equipment. A planned preventive maintenance may cause small hindrance for production, but that is nothing compared to actual downtime caused by a breakdown.
Maintenance is important because: • It prolongs the life expectancy of your machine
• It ensures that your machine always performs at its best
• It allows us to remedy small defects before they become costly repairs
• We ensure that your machine complies with government regulations
• A full service history enhances the value of the machine at re-sale
What is the main purpose of maintenance ? The cost of regular maintenance is very small when it is compared to the cost of a major breakdown at which time there is no production. The main purpose of regular maintenance is to ensure that all equipment required for production is operating at 100% efficiency at all times.
What are the types of maintenance we perform ? Traditionally, Henry Simon experts perform 5 types of maintenance have been distinguished, which are differentiated by the nature of the tasks that they include:
1. Corrective Maintenance; is the set of tasks is destined to correct the defects to be found in the different equipment and that are communicated to the maintenance department by the users of the same equipment.
2. Preventive Maintenance; serves as to maintain a level of certain service on equipment, programming the interventions of their vulnerabilities in the most opportune time. It is used to be a systematic character, that is, the equipment is inspected even if it has not given any symptoms of having a problem.
3. Predictive Maintenance; pursues constantly know and report the status and operational capacity of the installations by knowing the values of certain variables, which represent such state and operational ability. To apply this maintenance, it is necessary to identify physical variables (temperature, vibration, power consumption, etc.). Which variation is indicative of problems that may be appearing on the equipment. This maintenance it is the most technical, since it requires advanced technical resources, and at times of strong mathematical, physical and / or technical knowledge.
4. Zero Hours Maintenance (Overhaul): The set of tasks whose goal is to review the equipment at scheduled intervals before appearing any failure, either when the reliability of the equipment has decreased considerably so it is risky to make forecasts of production capacity . This review is based on leaving the equipment to zero hours of operation, that is, as if the equipment were new. These reviews will replace or repair all items subject to wear. The aim is to ensure, with high probability, a good working time fixed in advance.
5. Periodic Maintenance (Time Based Maintenance TBM): the basic maintenance of equipment made by the Henry Simon service experts. It consists of a series of elementary tasks (data collections, visual inspections, cleaning, lubrication, retightening screws etc.) for which extensive training is necessary.
