Schedule Planned Maintenance

Why Preventative Maintenance Is Important

Companies that rely solely on reactive maintenance are essentially waiting for a problem to happen, and this can be a very costly move. Unplanned downtime can result in idle employees, halting the production line, missed deadline.  Any unexpected failure of your equipment can mean having to pay technicians overtime and having to pay extra money for delivery of parts.

Lighting Surveys

Benefits of a Lighting Survey

KMH has helped hundreds of companies save thousands of dollars a year with lighting surveys and retrofitting projects that end up paying for themselves.  The development of LED technologies, manufacturer rebates and government incentives adds to your bottom line and new lighting fixtures have proven to have greater energy efficiency, while reducing maintenance costs due to their longer lifespan.  LED technologies have come down in price, accelerating payback expectancy and helping to make retrofit projects more cost efficient altogether.

5 Reasons For Your Lighting Survey

Energy Savings

With advancements in technologies, today’s lighting retrofits can create energy savings ranging anywhere from 40% to 90%, depending upon the type of project.

Maintenance Savings

Modern technologies are fostering significant maintenance savings due to the extended life or “burn hours” of the new lighting. Many LED technologies exhibit a rated life ranging from 50,000-100,000 hours, more than three times the life of the old T-12 and HID technologies of the past.

Improved Aesthetics

Today’s latest-generation lighting technology delivers a better color rendering mix, better uniformity and spread of light, and better lumen maintenance (i.e., light levels will hold at higher levels for longer periods of time).

Better Security

Employee safety improves when areas are optimally lit with better lighting technology.

Environmental Sensitivity

Unlike Metal Halide, High Pressure Sodium, and T-12 lighting, modern LED lighting technologies eliminate mercury from facilities, creating a safer environment and “go green” image for businesses.

Planned Maintenance

The Benefits of Planned Maintenance

It’s a fact that bad maintenance can have a serious effect on the health of a company and its employees. Not only will poor maintenance habits put the lives of the people who work on the equipment at risk, it will also affect the financial health of the business. In order for a company to be competitive they must follow sound vehicle and equipment maintenance procedures.

Planned Maintenance programs, if done on a regular basis, will significantly extend the life of the vehicle. This will include such things as changing of oil and filters; cleaning and lubrication; checking of all fluid levels; inspections for fork wear or chain stretch, vehicle inspection; and operational checks.

One of the best ways to reduce costs and maintain your material handling equipment is to have a planned maintenance program in place. Planned maintenance is an agreement to have a dealership service your forklifts on a regular basis. You may set up the frequency of maintenance based on preference and how much the equipment is used. Here are several reasons why planned maintenance will save your company time and money.

Safety

Every service includes a multi-point safety and operations inspection to ensure the unit is not posing any potentially harmful threats to its operator. This inspection helps catch issues before they become a major safety concern or major repair.

Increased Machine Life

Regular maintenance will reduce the frequency and severity of repairs. Without proper maintenance, it is possible that your equipment could have more frequent problems, such as pump repairs and engine rebuilds.

Increased Productivity

Equipment that is well maintained does not break down. This improves productivity as well as your profits.

Lower Cost of Repair

Repairs are made on a “fix-before-fail” basis, minimizing cost and residual damage.

Service Performed Correctly

You will have an experienced technician at your location each time your unit is due for service. You won’t have to be concerned with the possibility of an inexperienced tech performing checks on the unit and you will be able to plan service in advance when the unit will not be in demand. A trained technician will have the proper skills and tools to work on your equipment. This will result in less down time for you.

Every PM procedure includes comprehensive multi-point safety and operations inspection to help spot the problems before they happen, leading to reduced downtime for your lift truck fleet.

When you have a regular PM program you will begin to see benefits very quickly. Not only will a sound maintenance program increase reliability and safety, it will also reduce downtime, contribute to profits, and enhance the competitiveness of your business in the marketplace.
