What is Mechanical Maintenance?

Mechanical maintenance refers to a range of tasks that are essential for keeping machinery operating at optimum efficiency and effectiveness.

These tasks range from:

  • Performing machine inspections
  • Servicing machines before any failure or breakdown occurs
  • Repairing machines back to full operation in the event of a breakdown
  • Periodically re-lubricating machines
  • Applying adhesives and sealants as necessary
  • Keeping equipment clean and free of incontaminants

It’s essential that manufacturers invest in mechanical maintenance in order to avoid unexpected downtimes, maintain a smooth and safe flow of operations, keep a high standard of customer satisfaction and improve profitability.

Mechanical Maintenance Applications

Mechanical maintenance applies to a range of machines and components, ranging from:

And any other mechanical machine used in an industrial setting.

Mechanical Maintenance Adhesives, Lubricants & Protection

Adhesives, sealants, lubricants and protection solutions play a vital role in effective mechanical maintenance. Through the use of these solutions, manufacturers can ensure:

  • Quick repairs
  • Reduced frequency of maintenance
  • Reduced chances of downtimes
  • Increased equipment service life
  • Resistance to water, humidity and corrosion
  • Resistance to extreme temperatures and pressures
  • Reduced friction and wear
  • Improved reliability
  • Ability to keep incontaminants away from key parts
  • Easy and cheap applications

Here we explore our top range of adhesives, lubricants and protection solutions for different mechanical maintenance applications:
