Productivity is considered one of the most important concepts of the market economy. Therefore, production is programmed to continue uninterruptedly in feed plants. This depends on the full capacity and smooth operation of the machines. Therefore, the way of minimizing the potential disruptions in production is to address the issue of maintenance in a comprehensive way.
As it is known, maintenance is performed without any breakdown and it provides some benefits such as prolonging the lifetime of the machinery and equipment, increasing the efficiency and preventing negative effects on the product quality. Each part or machine that has broken down or has a poor efficiency adversely affects the speed and quality of production.
A halt of production is not a desired incidence for companies which are in harsh competition in every aspect, particularly in terms of quality and production capacity. For this reason; daily, weekly, monthly and yearly maintenance and repair of the machinery used in production should be carried out on time. Thanks to the regular and timely mechanical maintenance and repair, the plant both can save a considerable amount of time and there will be no halt of production due to unexpected failures.
As Feed Planet, the specialty magazine of the feed industry, we have focused on maintenance in feed plants in this issue. We hope that the articles in this file will benefit our valuable readers.
