Conveyor Maintenance: Avoid Costly Conveyor Downtime with Service Kits

June 6, 2019

Conveyors are a vital but often overlooked element in a facility’s production system. Conveyor maintenance is often sacrificed to the realities of budget constraints and the availability of maintenance resources, resulting in a significantly increased risk of unplanned downtime and interruption of the material handling function.

In a perfect world, conveyor maintenance is carried out regularly and worn or broken parts are identified and replaced as they are discovered. However, despite the best maintenance practices, the unexpected can happen where something fails and brings a conveyor down. Keeping service kits on hand can help ensure that the needed parts are available, leading to a quick repair and a return to profitable operations.

What are conveyor service kits?

Conveyor service kits are designed to help production facilities maintain continuous operations. These kits contain quantities of key parts that help minimize downtime when an unplanned downtime event arises.
