Advice on Maintenance of your Feeding Equipment(1)
Written by: RNA Automation
RNA equipment is synonymous with quality and reliability and strives to maintain its reputation in the field.
Often equipment supplied is run on a 24/7 basis leaving little time for preventative maintenance, below are a few suggestions to help maintain peak performance.
If possible try to inspect the equipment prior to the start up of a production run, if the equipment has been recently purchased always read the manual before operating the machine. Check the utility services (voltage, compressed air, and electrical equipment) before running the equipment often ancillaries such as sufficient air supply are overlooked.
In the case of a bowl feeder the internal lining should be clean and free of dust.
If possible, have a checklist available; be sure that each operator is familiar with the operating instructions supplied. RNA supply clear instructions with each feed system with pre set parameters documented as a quick reference guide.
OEM spare parts are available off the shelf but for unforeseen problems try and carry minimum spares and be aware of the fitting procedure. If a problem occurs off the shelf spare parts allow you to schedule a replacement at the most convenient time.
