Everyone knows that cars need regular, scheduled maintenance to keep running at peak performance, and battery handling equipment is no different. No one wants to lose valuable time and productivity when a machine is down. Keeping a regular schedule of maintenance will extend the life of battery changing equipment and help limit emergency downtime. Daily equipment inspections and Planned Maintenance will ensure that equipment issues will be identified as early as possible. The sooner a problem is known, the sooner a solution can be found, and the sooner a facility will be back at peak performance.
Make it easy for your technicians to inspect your BHS equipment by having them use the BHS checklists to conduct Daily and Planned Maintenance inspections. They cover every aspect of equipment functionality to make sure you won’t miss a thing. Check out Tech Tip #925 for suggested Planned Maintenance intervals for your BE system. Much of Planned Maintenance for Carriage Systems is based on duty cycles rather than concrete timelines. Call BHS Technical Support to determine a Planned Maintenance schedule that fits your unique needs.
Educate personnel on the importance of daily equipment checks and Planned Maintenance. Not only will these inspections protect your facility’s productivity, but they will also help prevent accidents caused by unsafe operating conditions. To further help your facility keep your BHS equipment at its peak performance, send your team to the BHS Service School – a free 3-day clinic! Your personnel will learn from the experts on-site at BHS, how to best operate and service your BHS battery changing equipment. Your Service Certified Technicians will then be able to more thoroughly conduct all your equipment inspections and provide immediate service to keep your production going.
