Aftermarket Program Improves Uptime & Performance for End-of-Line Machines
At PACK EXPO Las Vegas (Sept. 23-25, Las Vegas Convention Center) Brenton, a product brand of ProMach, will display its new, multifaceted aftermarket program that reduces downtime and increases the flexibility of end-of-line machines — custom case packaging, palletizing and robotic packaging systems. The aftermarket program includes a tailored spare parts kits, audits and video-based training.
Brenton now offers two custom-designed parts kits to reduce downtime from days or hours to minutes. Addressing two of the most common replacement areas on a machine, Brenton offers the Pneumatic Repair Kit and the Electric Cable Repair Kit. Both kits will be featured at the Brenton booth.
Following a customer’s request for an audit, a Brenton aftermarket representative will visit the facility for an equipment evaluation. No downtime will be required during the process. Within two weeks of the audit, the customer receives a service report covering the equipment’s operational status and opportunities for improving overall equipment effectiveness (OEE).
A new series of training videos is another piece of Brenton’s program. Prepared by PMMI certified trainers, the videos are designed to quickly provide personnel not familiar with a machine with the basics of machine operation. The videos can also be used for refresher training as well.
Another aspect of the initiative includes a retrofit program that features practical ways of improving the OEE of older machines.
