3 Reasons for Preventative Folder Maintenance + Incentive = Do It Now

Why perform preventative maintenance on a folding machine? Is this expense necessary and what are the benefits? The answers are quite simple.

  1. It is important to meet the deadlines promised to your customers. Having a piece of equipment break down in the middle of an important job can result in paying employees to work overtime or, even worse, you can’t deliver on time, losing that important clients’ future business forever. Doing regular preventative maintenance can eliminate or greatly reduce this possibility.
  2. A folder like any piece of equipment, is a major investment for your company that should be maximized and protected. With care, a BAUM folder should last for years if you take care of it. However, the failure to do such simple things as clean the pump filters, regular lubrication, checking for worn belts, etc. can greatly shorten the life of your machine and/or result in an unexpected breakdown at the worst possible time. A Preventative Maintenance schedule can help you protect this investment and minimize unscheduled down time.
  3. It is cheaper to maintain your folder on an ongoing basis. It’s expensive to have parts flown in overnight when a belt breaks or a bearing seizes up because you didn’t inspect it or lubricate it properly. By having a preventive maintenance program you are in control of when your folder is down for maintenance.
