Most manufacturing machines are full of complex systems, all working together to produce high-quality products for distribution. However, the whole process can come to a grinding halt if even one of these parts is out of sync with everything else. This is why preventative maintenance is essential to keeping things up and running. Here are a few ways to tell that your system is due for some overdue TLC and repair.

If you find that a particular machine is suddenly using far more energy than it normally would over a given period of time, you should check its parts for signs of stress. It might be drawing more power to compensate for failing components. Read More
