Is your finishing equipment worn out? Restoration is the most economical way to improve its performance capacity and it is a common choice for fixing worn-out and old finishing equipment.
What is Restoration?
Restoration is the process of taking your existing equipment and rebuilding it. This process involves reassembling the equipment parts, sometimes replacing various parts, cleaning, lubricating, factory resetting, and carrying out firmware upgrades, oil changing, cosmetic revitalization, and several other actions. It is done to restore the old equipment to the original or even better than the original condition.
This differs from repairing in that repairing involves only replacing the bad or worn-out part that has made your equipment non-functional. It may also include some procedures that are part of the restoration process. At Mikro, we specialize both in the restoration and repairs of finishing equipment.
Restoration comes with several benefits, the biggest being that it is cost-saving. It is an excellent alternative to buying new equipment.
Also, restoration will help your expensive finishing equipment retain its value and keep it in good working condition. Fully restored equipment also has a high resale value should you choose to sell it in the future.
Apart from restoration, routine repairs and preventative maintenance are vital for extending the lifespan of your finishing equipment and will save you a lot of money in the long run. Routinely fixing your finishing equipment will keep it in optimal working condition and prevent more costly repairs.
When should you consider restoring your finishing equipment?
When done correctly, restoration is a great way to save money but restoring some small equipment might not be necessary and lead to more expenses. Before you think of restoring your finishing equipment, here are a few things to consider:
- The age of your current equipment – This is important when considering restoration. If your finishing equipment is more than 10 years old, it will require more frequent repairs thus incurring more costs. Also, older equipment won’t be able to compete with newer models in terms of speed, so a newer, fully restored machine, might be the best option for you.
- Downtime – Another essential factor to consider is how much downtime you experience monthly or yearly due to maintenance-related issues. If you spend more than 10 percent of work hours on repairs monthly or yearly, then it might be time to consider restoring your equipment.
- Parts availability – Sometimes, the parts needed to fix older equipment aren’t made anymore. Those parts will become expensive and most times, impossible to find. This means additional downtime in production, so restored machinerymight be the best option for you.
Ultimately, the decision to restore your equipment depends on your company’s priorities.
