Automated assembly machines are not cheap to construct and install. As a result, you should do all you can to keep your systems running optimally. This is also the case when running a continuous motion assembly machine. Because of all the moving parts within a system, it is just a matter of time before a machine begins to run sluggishly. Those that ignore regular preventative maintenance are bound to have issues with their machines. To extend the life of your expensive system, you need to take care of it. When given TLC, systems can run for more than 20 years. On the other hand, when you do not take care of your system, it can need replacing within only several years of operations.
Different machines require different preventative maintenance checks. This is determined by the design of the machine and its functions. Reviewing service manuals explains how the machine operates. It also outlines troubleshooting processes for common machine failures. Once you begin to process this information, you can begin to outline a preventative maintenance routine/checklist to follow.
Some common preventative maintenance includes:
- Checking the alignment of the machine to ensure that all parts are level
- Checking various parts of the machine, including machine bolts, hinges, and levers. Do this to ensure everything is tight and at the correct tolerance
- Checking machine components to see if any need replacing
- Keeping machines and the surrounding area clear from dirt and debris to ensure that your machine operates effectively
- If you have a vision system, make sure to clean the lens
