Most people usually associate costs with doing something. Replacing tooling, cleaning molds, fixing things, etc. But actually, the highest costs come from doing nothing.
TPM (Total Productive Maintenance) brings maintenance into focus as a necessary and vitally important part of the business. Down time for maintenance is scheduled as a part of the manufacturing day and an integral part of the manufacturing business. The goal is to hold emergency and unscheduled maintenance to a minimum.
At Creative Blow Mold Tooling, we believe there is no substitute for good data. Documentation like this is an important tool and should be a major part of maintenance planning.
Using actual performance data is critical in developing a mold maintenance schedule that is part of a proactive, defect-targeting mold-maintenance culture – increasing your performance, efficiency and productivity.
Creative can help you achieve Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) by adding the CVe Monitors to your new mold builds and retrofitting them to existing mold sets.
The ability to add documentation as a tool, developing a mold maintenance schedule moves an operation into a proactive, defect-targeting mold-maintenance culture increasing performance, efficiency and productivity.
