If you think equipment uptime is crucial to your manufacturing operations, invest in developing an effective lubrication program. The equipment failure is largely associated with improper lubrication practices. Ineffective and inaccurate lubrication practices are widespread across industries costing companies billions of dollars every year.
Lubricant degradation and problems associated with maintenance lead to a high percentage of mechanical wear and fatigue. Billions of dollars are lost annually because of unnecessary repair work that has to be carried out on manufacturing machines and equipment that has not been properly maintained and lubricated.
