1024 645 piyanieta

Mobile device seperti smartphone sudah menjadi barang yang wajib dimiliki oleh mayoritas orang. Ukurannya yang kecil dan banyak aplikasi yang mudah digunakan membuat mobile device sangat powerful. Nah, bagaimana jika mobile device dimanfaatkan untuk mencegah Machine Failure?

Pencegahan Machine Failure dengan Daily Inspection

Salah satu kiat pencegahan Machine Failure adalah dengan disiplin melakukan Daily Inspection. Rutinitas pengecekan yang dilakukan setiap hari, baik sebelum dan sesudah mengoperasikan mesin, dapat memberikan informasi kondisi alat secara menyeluruh sehingga mampu mendeteksi adanya anomali pada alat lebih dini. Namun, mayoritas perusahaan memiliki cukup banyak alat. Misalnya 1 kontraktor tambang memiliki 3 fleet alat. Jika 1 fleet terdiri dari 1 unit excavator, 2 unit dozer, dan 3 unit dump truck; maka perusahaan tersebut memiliki total 18 unit alat. Semakin banyak alat, manajemen maintenance alat akan semakin sulit.

Cara Lama Daily Inspection Kurang Efektif
Daily Inspection yang dilakukan manual umumnya menggunakan form checklist berbentuk kertas. Laporan yang sudah terisi biasanya dikumpulkan untuk di-input ulang ke dalam sistem menggunakan perangkat elektronik seperti komputer atau laptop. Terlalu banyak waktu dan tenaga terbuang hanya untuk melakukan proses input data, bukan begitu?

Coba Daily Inspection dengan Mobile App!

9 Tips to Prolong Tracks Lifetime

1024 645 piyanieta

The undercarriage of crawler equipment consists of several moving components, such as rollers, idler, tracks, and other else. Every part is important to keep the machine productivity and make it last longer. One of the best ways is to apply proper operation, especially to control the cost of wear items.

Here are 9 tips of proper operation to prolong the tracks lifetime:

  1. Make wider turns to decrease the potential for de-tracking of rubber-track machines and prevent excessive wear. More gradual turns (such as Y-turns) for longer track and undercarriage lifetime.
  2. Spin control. Unnecessary spinning can increase wear and decrease productivity. It’s better to do wide and less aggressive spin. Also, decrease the blade or bucket load won’t harm you.
  3. Alternate turning direction to prevent asymmetrical and excessive wear caused by continuous turning on the same side.
  4. Extra attention when working up and down on slopes. Constant operation on a slope or hill in one direction will place greater forces on one side only that increase the possibility of accelerating wear to idlers, rollers, and guide lugs. Turns are best performed on level ground. Also, make sure the driver motor placed in the right position: facing the back of the machine for easy maneuver in the slope or hill (according to Reardon).
  5. Minimize high-speed and reverse travel. As you know, higher speed and unnecessary travel in reverse can cause wear faster than it should be. So, limit it!
  6. Cautious when encountering edges, such as driving over steep edges because it can lead damage to rubber tracks. Avoid loading just the side of trackpad and use ramps will be good ideas to delay wear.
  7. Avoid rough asphalt, concrete, and other abrasive materials as much as possible.
  8. Select the shoe width that matches the machine weight and field conditions. For example, narrow shoes that have better soil penetration and grip are better suited for hard soil and rocky conditions. Wide shoes typically have more flotation with lower ground pressure that makes them can work well in soft underfoot conditions.
  9. Select the type of grouser suitable for the work conditions. More grousers mean more contacts between the track and the ground which will reduce vibration and prolong its life when working in more abrasive conditions

Heavy machinery is an important asset of mining, construction, and agriculture industries. As we all know, every piece of machinery is expensive. That’s why the company needs to maintain and manage the asset carefully and well to ensure optimal performance while reducing unexpected costs.

Here are some maintenance tips for heavy machinery by amtiss :

  1. Scheduled!
    Schedule inspections and maintenance check-up of every machine to monitor the condition and prevent the major issue of the machine. Stay on the scheduled maintenance date and get your equipment ‘healthy’ for a long time. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) reports, up to 20% of industrial accidents are related to maintenance operations, with 15% involving worker fatalities*.
  2. Create and Follow the Standard!
    Create and follow the standard of maintenance. Standard is created to decreasing negative issues as much as possible.
  3. Monitor!
    Monitor every activities and condition of every asset! By doing this, the company can gain useful data such as fuel efficiency, fuel consumption, asset location, etc. Then, it is easier to determine a better maintenance strategy of the machinery. Yes, you’re welcome!
    (Read about Fuel Efficiency and Fuel Consumption here)
  4. Quality is more important than Cheap!
    All the company wants to reduce costs as much as possible. However, it is absolutely not recommended to pick cheaper assets or parts that are unreliable. Better choose the one which has good quality. Think like this, if the company buys the cheap one with low quality, the assets or parts will have poorer productivity and have a higher possibility to break before the scheduled ‘death’. Then, the company needs to buy the new one which is cost more than buying a good quality one-that have better productivity and warranty.
  5. The Right Tools!
    Always use the right tools for your equipment. Also, combine technology in your maintenance management plan! By utilizing technology, some process can be done faster and easier. For example, use amtiss web app and mobile app as the digital maintenance management of the assets.
