Rexroth Solution:

  • Routine maintenance on a daily, weekly, monthly and quarterly schedule

  • Regular inspection, cleaning and lubrication of equipment

  • Proactive repairs and maintenance as needed

Key Insights & Considerations:

  • On a daily basis, inspect conveyor belts and chains for debris, wear or damage.

  • On a weekly basis, wipe down conveyor systems, ensure that pallet bottoms are free of debris and check the tightness of all T-bolts on the pallet stop gates.

  • On a monthly basis, lubricate toothed belts, check for loose or missing fasteners, clean side guards and make sure cooling components are running efficiently.

  • On a quarterly basis, inspect the condition and lubrication of conveyor chains.

  • Always keep an eye out for signs of conveyor failure, including excessively loud operation and erratic movement.
