Poor lubrication protocols account for over 50% of rotating equipment failures. Effective lubrication services and management keeps rotating and reciprocating machinery in top condition. Lubricating oil carries away heat and contaminants while preventing damaging surface-to-surface contact. It’s the lifeblood of every production machine and a well-maintained lubrication system keeps machinery healthy.
That means fewer breakdowns and stoppages and less part-to-part variation, so quality improves. Taken together, the result is higher OEE, but that’s not all. Factory costs lower, production increases and more time can be spent on proactive maintenance work.
Protecting Assets, Improving Performance
Maintenance budgets are under pressure and everyone is trying to do more with less. Staffing levels are down, and skilled positions are being lost to attrition. All too often it’s machinery lubrication that gets neglected.
RJW’s machinery lubrication management program, as part of a comprehensive factory maintenance plan, overcomes this problem. Developed and run by highly qualified and trained lubrication engineers, this approach uses best practices and the correct management tools to ensure every machine gets exactly the service it needs. As part of a comprehensive maintenance plan, we offer machine lubricant services, including:
