Why is Maintenance required?

01. The production capacity of the plants is generally 1000 items per hour.

02. A variety of products are manufactured under a single umbrella. (Soaps, detergents, perfumes, toiletries)

03. FMCG industries choose predictive maintenance and data analytics to increase their bottom line and competitive advantage.

04. To determine the equipment response and schedule the work load/ batch-processing accordingly.

05. The health care sector utilizes Predictive Maintenance to improvise customer satisfaction.

06. To maintain equipment history and carry out research to forecast outcomes based on operating parameters, assembly chains and schedule production targets accordingly.

Equipment used in FMCG
