Why does annual scheduled maintenance pay off?



Più Increased safety for your machine tools

Numerical control machines play a central role in modern smart factories that have embraced the benefits and challenges of Industry 4.0. Affinché However, they must function optimally in order to consistently perform at their maximum capacity. Otherwise, there is a risk of unforeseen production slowdowns, machine downtime and, in some cases, even severe damages and financial losses. How can we prevent these risks? By scheduling an annual electronic and mechanical check-up. Performing scheduled preventive maintenance on your CNC machines means safeguarding the well-being of your personnel and the entire production chain.

 

CNC machine check-up: a guarantee of savings

Resolving any malfunctions that may arise from prolonged use of a machine tool before they become major problems is not just a smart move but also a guarantee of savings. In fact, taking care of your CNC machines automatically benefits your company's bottom line. Regular check-ups result in minimising machine tool repair costs and times, while also alleviating frustrations and concerns.

 

The service you need, when you need it

Due to the wide range of multi-brand CNC machine tools available today, each with its own set of tools and capabilities, it is becoming increasingly important to rely on an expert partner to plan your periodic maintenance. With over 20 years of experience, Assistec provides mechanical and electronic support, including scheduled maintenance, for CNC machines, offering a comprehensive service tailored to your needs. From the overhaul of spindles and electro-spindles to the retrofitting of lathes and machining centres, up to the grinding of spindle cone directly on the machine, and much more!

  • Exploring the different types of CNC machines

    It's clear that the market for CNC machine tools is just as varied as the tasks these machines have to perform. This is because, with the advent of Industry 4.0 and modern smart factories, these machines have gradually taken on a more predominant role within industries, particularly manufacturing. CNC technology offers efficiency, precision and consistency, which are difficult to achieve with manual machining processes. There are various methods for classifying CNC machines, most of which are based on their design and intended tasks. Among the various types of CNC machines are milling machines, lathes, laser or plasma cutting machines, drilling machines, and grinding machines. They each have their own unique features and functionalities that can be customised using computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) programs, enabling precise control over the movements of cutting tools and workpieces.

  • CNC machine tool maintenance: a guarantee of optimal performance

    The maintenance and overhaul of CNC machine tools should not be confused with their repair. While repair is requested by the customer when a machine malfunctions, causing an emergency that could also lead to a halt in production, an overhaul is a scheduled or planned intervention conducted in agreement with a technological partner. During an overhaul, the machine is completely disassembled, and each individual component is carefully analysed and, if necessary, replaced or repaired. Regular overhauls are essential to ensure efficiency, precision and longevity of CNC machines. This preventive and proactive approach enables the resolution of minor issues before they cause serious damage.

  • AI at the service of machine tools

    Artificial Intelligence is now among us. Just as electricity did a hundred years ago, AI today promises to change the world. No industrial sector is exempt from this epoch-making change, from the food industry to manufacturing, to mechanical engineering and many others. In addition to being on everyone's lips, the advent of Artificial Intelligence is increasingly imposing itself in the world of work, marking a new step forward for Industry 5.0, so much so as to raise legitimate concerns as opposed to great expectations from the point of view of technological optimisation in contemporary smart factories. In particular, with regard to integration with the CNC machine park, the coupling of automated systems such as robots and cobots, and the improvement of production flow and safety in the workplace.
