Why wait for problems to occur when failures can be predicted?

To bridge the gap between failure and basic preventive maintenance it is important to use scientific and precise methods for analyzing and predicting failures before they happen. With Atlas Copco preventive maintenance programs we can optimize your tool servicing and increase uptime at your plant, while reducing mean time between repairs as well as the time to repair the tools. As the loss of efficiency is gradual it can be hard to detect. You may only become aware of the tools’ declining performance after facing increased reworking and warranty costs. So look at an Atlas Copco preventive maintenance contract today, increase your product quality, and reduce your risk of liability claims and reputation damages.


Downtime could cost you £5000 per minute

When a tool fails the cost isn’t confined to the workshop fixing it. Leading up to the failure the tool will become less consistent, which can result in incorrectly assembled units, extra work for the quality department and team leaders, and the need for tool calibration and verification. These costs can sometimes be greater than the actual cost of repairing the tool. Replacing all the wear parts rather than just the worn component ensures that your tool will function like new and need fewer unplanned repairs, thus giving lower overall cost of ownership!

Wouldn’t it be better to train one of my own employees?

With a service agreement you don't incur costs in ordering spare parts and then waiting for them to arrive. An Atlas Copco service contract gives you access to a huge inventory of spare parts with much lower turnaround times and associated costs. There is no need to purchase special tooling and training either. We fix these tools every day so there’s no associated risk of a mechanic forgetting certain procedures after months of irregular maintenance. With an in-house contract available for larger plants you can even have an engineer at your disposal 24 hours a day, ready for anything!
