If your equipment goes down, how prepared are you to recover quickly? Most companies require some level of outside support, especially as they encounter greater skills shortages, obsolescence risks, and operational complexity. Lost productivity caused by poor performance or unplanned failure of your automation assets can significantly reduce your revenue and profitability. In today’s competitive environment, you need to keep these assets running at peak efficacy to reach your production and business goals. Not all companies have the resources to develop and sustain an industrial preventive maintenance program that will optimize their operating environment. With our service agreement, we provide plant-wide preventive maintenance services on all of your machines and equipment.
A Rockwell Automation Preventive Maintenance Service Agreement allows you to leverage our global network of technical resources to help you design and implement the most efficient preventive maintenance program for optimizing the performance of your equipment to ensure greater productivity and quality. Our scheduled maintenance inspections have been developed and improved through years of automation system maintenance experience. Pending system failures are identified and only those system components that are past their operational lifecycle are recommended to be repaired or replaced. This approach drives down costs by eliminating unnecessary repairs occurring with most time-based preventive maintenance programs.
Total protection and peace of mind with the full support of CBT and Rockwell Automation to stand behind your preventive maintenance program:
Here is how we can help:
Supported products include drives, programmable logic controllers, motion systems, electronic operator interface, power quality, networks, and software – both discrete and process systems. Every piece of equipment that is covered by your agreement includes a full-service warranty.
Your Preventive Maintenance Service Agreement begins with a senior engineer conducting an initial performance and condition assessment of the equipment to be covered. The assessment includes recording pertinent system/component data, environmental observations, revision levels, and a visual check of the equipment condition.
During this time, relevant system documentation will be collected and interviews held with facility/plant personnel concerning production goals, system application, functionality and operational history. This information will be used to create a comprehensive and customized plan for your specific application – determining the frequency of visits and activities required.
During each subsequent maintenance visit, a comprehensive series of inspections will be conducted to ensure equipment is operating to specifications and to maximize its availability, reliability and efficiency. At the conclusion of each visit, you will receive documentation of all activities performed including, measurements taken and remediation recommended.
If your agreement includes warranty, Rockwell Automation will schedule and perform remediation on any affected assets. Additionally, in the unlikely event of equipment failure occurring between visits, a Rockwell Automation experienced, factory-trained field service professional will be dispatched to your facility to troubleshoot the problem, perform the necessary repairs and restore operation.
Rockwell Automation will review the progress of your preventive maintenance program with you on a periodic basis, including a summary of maintenance activities, outstanding issues, progress against goals and Return on Investment measurements.
Treat maintenance as an asset, not an expense. The more aware you become of your facility’s needs and challenges, the more fine-tuned and efficient your preventative maintenance (PM) activities will become. By choosing to use a CBT specialist with Rockwell Automation’s resources to develop and sustain a PM program through scheduled service visits, fully warranted replacement parts, and 24/7 remote troubleshooting – you are freeing up your personnel to operate the equipment and manufacture products, and boosting your bottom line.
Utilize CBT’s Preventative Maintenance Agreements to predict future failures so your facility can avoid costly unplanned downtime.
