An unexpected shutdown can mean the loss of valuable production time – and profits – for a food manufacturer. A shift in thinking, as well as new technology and tools available, are helping food producers proactively manage systems maintenance rather than waiting for a problem to occur. Predictive maintenance (PdM) tools make use of cameras, vibration sensors and ultrasonic readings to alert plant managers to an impending problem in a part or machine.

Combined with regularly scheduled, preventive maintenance on components, PdM can help manufacturers take a proactive approach to ensuring that their production lines are operating at peak levels. Whether you need regular replacement parts or new machines to replace worn-out systems, our long-standing relationships with nearly 50 parts distributors can help you get the components you need quickly, and our expert team of installers and fabricators can offer the assistance you need to service the system on-site.
