PREVENTIVE Maintenance

Eliminate Unscheduled Downtime and Improve ProductivityPreventive-Maintenance-Collage

Preventive maintenance is about more than just protecting your machine tool investment. By implementing a preventive maintenance plan, you can maximize your shop’s productivity with scheduled downtime. From simple machine upgrades to proactive maintenance contracts, Hartwig can help you achieve uptime and maximize the capacity of your CNC machines.

Preventive Maintenance Provides Peace of Mind

During a preventive maintenance service call, your machine is inspected for unseen or potential issues. When you slide back the covers on your machine, you may see areas of wear that are not detectable on a daily basis. This provides the opportunity to make proactive repairs before expensive failures occur.

Lengthen Machine Tool Life – Enhance Operating Efficiency

All service visits related to PMs include regularly-scheduled basic maintenance tasks recommended by the manufacturer. Our Field Service Technician will check the entire mechanics, pneumatics and electronics of your machine using the manufacturer’s checklist and specifications. Your machine will be carefully tested for early detection of possible failures resulting from wear, material fatigue or incorrect settings. Any required routine adjustments or repairs are identified and performed on the spot (if requested and repair parts are available). At the end of the visit, you are provided with a detailed maintenance report of work performed and any recommendations for future needs.
