Repairing your press is extremely important to keep production at maximum efficiency. Taking the time to inspect your press can save you time and money in the future. When your press is being dismantled for repair, this provides a great opportunity to inspect the press for any further repairs or modifications to enhance the system. Taking this time to inspect the press can save time and money. A large part of the expense of equipment repairs or modifications is the labor associated with teardown and inspection.
Timing your press repair around a relocation is beneficial because production downtime is already planned. Components targeted for replacement or repair can be dealt with while the rest of the machinery is being moved to its new location. In many cases, components can be repaired and reinstalled with the other equipment as a seamless process.
For example, during the dismantle inspection, it may be revealed that the drive shaft or the ram needs to be rebuilt. Discovering any issues at this point and having all repairs and upgrades completed during this already scheduled downtime will save time and money in the long run. If the components are not rebuilt during this time, they will need to be fixed in the future which could cause disruption to production schedules. This would also be costly due to having to dismantle the press twice to reach and rebuild the components.
