PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE PROGRAM
One popular saying is that “prevention is better than cure”. This dictum applies to another type of maintenance known by the name of preventive maintenance. This is widely used in the textile industry, since it ensures the constant operation of the machines and the obtaining of products with quality.
Preventive maintenance requires careful planning, where all machine data is recorded and controlled. According to the data, scheduled stops are made for intervention by maintenance personnel. During the execution of preventive maintenance, parts that are broken by fatigue or exhaustion of the useful life are changed, joining also the lubrificants. We emphasize that many mechanical components of textile machines must be lubrificated daily.
