True cost of packaging equipment downtime
Lack of packaging equipment maintenance results in frequent interruptions in the packaging process, poorly packaged loads, and shorter life of your packaging equipment, calling for sooner capital expenses to replace it.
Unplanned packaging equipment downtime due to machine failure or breakdown can wreak havoc, causing missed shipments and loss of customer trust; thousands of dollars of lost revenue; and amplified stress on the equipment and people operating the machinery. Besides that, it costs approximately 50% more to repair a failed asset than if the problem had been addressed prior to failure (Source: Emerson Process Management).
Having a trusted packaging equipment repair provider can certainly give you peace of mind, knowing that they will do their best to get your equipment up and running as soon as possible. However, top-performing organizations are adopting a proactive approach, implementing preventive maintenance programs for their packaging lines.
