Injection machines are equipment designed to have a long service life. The materials used in the construction of these machines are resistant precisely to last several production cycles. It turns out that if the injection molding machine is not well maintained, repair costs can be quite high.
To avoid major financial losses to the production line, it is important to follow some tips that can increase the life of your injection molding machine. We also remember that it is essential to have the presence of adequate machinery and a serious, competent and responsible supplier.
Both preventive maintenance and regular maintenance of plastic injection molding machines are extremely important to keep the equipment fully operational. Maintenance is excellent for preventing failures and predicting future problems, as well as solving them before they actually happen.
PAY ATTENTION TO MACHINE SIGNALS
Plastic injection machines can give signals when something wrong is about to happen. The first common sign that the injection molding machine can present is the audible signal, that is, some noise that is different from the normal one.
Any unusual noise that arises during the operation of the injection molding machine should not be ignored as it could be a sign of loose parts, lack of lubrication or other problems. So, it is important to always be alert to the signs that the injection molding machine presents. Having noted all the services that have been performed on your injection machine is important to keep track of when you need to perform a new check.
KEEP CLEAN AROUND THE INJECTION MACHINE
Cleaning is important to prolong the life of the injection machine to facilitate the visualization of the area and appearance of the machine, making it possible to see better if the equipment presents damage, leaks, obstructions or other problems.
LOG A MACHINE HISTORY
You can organize a history of inspections and maintenance for each machine, so it will be easier to know what service has been performed on each one. Insert the specification of the service that was done, replaced parts, date, time and, in this way, you will have greater control over the useful life of the injection machines.
In addition to having a maintenance control, having this record can also serve as proof to show that your injection molding machine was properly maintained in accordance with the manufacturer’s guidelines, which increases the useful life of the equipment.
