Companies can take advantage of scheduled factory shutdowns during the upcoming July 4th weekend to perform proactive maintenance on CNC equipment. According to Mitsubishi Electric Automation (Vernon Hills, Illinois), preventive maintenance can increase equipment uptime and productivity, improve machine performance, and prevent repairs. The company recommends checking all batteries, inspecting cooling fans and heat sinks, and performing a full memory backup.
Plant managers can call or email Mitsubishi Electric Automation for support in performing maintenance checks. The company also offers on-site maintenance service and data backup to its network.
