Planned Preventative Maintenance or PPM is the mostly ignored and results in the most cost if you do not implement PPM for your machine tools. Both cost of parts and lost production, not to mention customer satisfaction for late delivery of parts manufactured by your company.

Directors of companies are happy to ensure their company cars are regularly serviced  but ignore the machinery that makes them money!! WHY??

Whilst modern CNC machines are robust they still need servicing.

  • Hydraulic oil replacement.
  • Fans in cabinets and on electronic drive assemblies.
  • Swarf collected around toolchangers.
  • Refrigeration units for high speed spindles.
  • Air filters.
  • Check for ball screw wear.
  • Lubrication circuits.

Regular checks can save you thousands of pounds in the long term and lost production hours. Look at the chart above and see how you save money with PPM.
