Maintenance Training Package

On-site training of maintenance staff in operational equipment maintenance

Constant uptime without any unexpected interruptions requires timely and correct equipment maintenance. One of the main reasons for performing timely maintenance is to pre-empt premature wear part replacement, along with the associated impact on uptime and costs. The resulting mechanical reliability along with maintenance staff capabilities is a good basis for continued reliable specimen quality. Much of this can be achieved by training in-house staff.

What you get

Your maintenance staff is trained in performing standard preventive maintenance on the equipment. This includes equipment inspection, basic cleaning, standard wear part replacement, adjustments/calibration, and functional testing. The training is a "hands-on," fully documented preventive maintenance service performed along with your staff following the Struers service checklist and using original Struers standard wear parts. The training and the checklist form the basis for your maintenance staff’s future maintenance work.

By following a formal maintenance plan for the equipment, your staff can ensure specified performance without unexpected issues between maintenance points. In the case of an unexpected event, they will be better able to make small adjustments themselves, or explain the problem to a Struers help desk service officer who will then be able to guide them to a solution.

Important Benefits

  1. Greater service flexibility
  2. Improved equipment utilization
  3. In-house service skills
