Preventive Maintenance Services


If you want to ensure top performance of your material handling system and equipment then maintenance is the key; and W&H Systems provides the experienced Maintenance Personnel to keep your system running as designed. A well-executed and scheduled maintenance plan can extend the life of your material handling system, make it more reliable, and help prevent expensive downtime.

Preventive maintenance is a schedule of planned maintenance actions aimed at the prevention of breakdowns and failures. The primary goal of preventive maintenance is to protect your investment by preventing the failure of equipment before it actually occurs. It is designed to preserve and enhance equipment reliability by replacing worn components before they actually fail. Preventive maintenance activities include equipment checks, partial or complete overhauls at specific periods, oil changes, lubrication and so on. In addition, we record equipment deterioration so that decisions can be made to replace or repair worn parts before they cause system failure.

Our standard preventive maintenance programs address the basic needs of the material handling equipment. They insure that the equipment is properly adjusted and lubricated at regular intervals.

Standard program options are available as well as custom programs that are designed for customer-specific maintenance needs and schedules.
