1. Machine Maintenance & Troubleshooting

When should you invest in a spare parts package?

Keeping spare parts on-site can expedite machine service.

Remotely located operations that are geographically far enough away from a service technician’s point of dispatch—or those in an area that lacks a high density of the same machines—would be wise to keep a package of critical spare parts on-site.

In addition to 24/7 maintenance support, operations of critical nature, where downtime would negatively impact the supply chain, should keep a spare parts package on-site to safeguard against a lengthy production shutdown. This ensures that the most commonly needed, or critical, parts are available should the technician not have them on their vehicle, nor will they have to be shipped from the OEM if they aren’t stocked locally.
