CHALLENGE
CHALLENGE
Production uptime at our customer’s facility was adversely affected when they were running tools to failure without any preventative maintenance practices in place. This run-to-failure model caused costly, unplanned downtime.

The customer was averaging 10 minutes of downtime per month at a rate of $2,500 per minute, or approx. $300,000 per year, due to downtime caused by tool failures.
