Quality of life

Posted by AM Machinery Sales on July 12, 2018
When looking at finishing or deburring there are many points to take into account. One of the points over looked many times is the fact you will have to live with a new machine for may years hopefully. What is it going to be like over the long term dealing with the machine as far as operator training and care of the machine. Is there good support for the machine so that you can get the help you need when you need it? Dealing with a wet finishing machine has been the bane of many a maintenance persons life. From bearings and rust issues to electrical problems it can run the gambit. Moving into a dry machine will limit many of these issues and save a fair amount of down time. Finding rust and debris is never a welcome surprise when a machine has gone down.


No machine is immune to failure even a hammers handle can break and when dealing with machinery there are far more components in the mix. Having support and a reliable easy to service design can prove to be worth its weight in gold when you have product to get out and a machine has gone out of service. A simple interface that is easy to instruct staff on is also a big plus. Rather than a complicated process only a few are able to manage the more simple operation can prove valuable as staff changes take place over the machines life. Keeping some of these points in mind can save you a fair amount of time and money over a machines life. If you ignore these points you will not be doing yourself any favors.
