MixCare - the Art of Maintenance

– The art of maintenance
True leaders in the manufacturing sector always recognise the wisdom and benefit of a proactive approach to maintenance – compared with the cost and even injuries that may be the consequence of a more haphazard, reactive approach.

Manufacturing leaders understand it is essential machinery is correctly maintained to avoid failure and the resulting costs. Scrapped batches due to interrupted process, incorrect temperature/pressure, contamination, machinery downtime etc. all impact on efficient production – and profit!

Other common issues include vibration leading to loose components or early drive train failure and shaft seal failure.

– Guaranteed compliance and reliability
Greaves’ MixCare™ can assist and support customers who wish to adopt a proactive approach to safety and continuous reliability and minimising any lost time in lengthy and costly machine failures, particularly those caused by reactive maintenance.
