Free Bosch Rexroth Canada seminar will demonstrate how basic monitoring and maintenance principles can boost industrial hydraulics reliability, productivity, and uptime

(Burlington, Ontario – Canada – ) A substantial investment in industrial hydraulics often depends upon basic monitoring and changing of a hydraulic machine’s lifeblood – oil. The Hydraulic Maintenance Unplugged seminar offered by Bosch Rexroth Canada will show manufacturers how to stay ahead of hydraulic maintenance needs. The seminar will also emphasize predictive maintenance – avoiding trouble before it starts through a variety of analysis and monitoring techniques. Interested participants can find more information and register for the seminar online at .

“Most users of industrial hydraulics underestimate the value of hydraulic oil within their production equipment, and often don’t realize how many monitoring tools are available to them,” says Darren German, Service Manager of Bosch Rexroth Canada and one of the seminar’s presenters. “We want to show how oil analysis, trend monitoring, and predictive maintenance can bring manufacturers a substantial return in maximized productivity and uptime.”

Seminar participants will gain insights into how techniques such as thermography, chemical analysis, and 24-hour trend mapping can help manufacturers maintain tighter control of hydraulics maintenance and upkeep costs. These condition-monitoring approaches can give manufacturers a much more complete picture of a hydraulic system’s “health” when combined with conventional bottle sampling. Comparing hydraulic oil to the body’s circulatory system, German points out that short-term oversights can lead to long-term problems that compromise machine performance and lead to downtime and equipment damage. To help prevent this, Bosch Rexroth Canada hydraulic maintenance specialists will educate participants on the numerous tests available to help judge how well the oil in a system is performing, and show how modest investments of time and cost can head off a major failure.

The Hydraulic Maintenance Unplugged seminar features classroom-style instruction with case history examples and a demonstration that will show how quickly contamination can impact system cleanliness. The seminar will take place between 8:45 AM and 3:00 PM on May 10, 2011 in Burlington, ON and is designed for plant managers, plant supervisors, operations supervisors, and other decision-makers. This event is ideal for medium-to-small facilities which prefer to outsource their hydraulic maintenance and servicing, and it also provides an excellent introduction to Bosch Rexroth’s in-depth hydraulic upkeep training sessions.
