Establishing a proper equipment maintenance program can be very important. Without a proper protocol to keep a stretch wrap machine (or any sort of machine for that matter) in perfect function, it can be very challenging to run a stable, consistent business. Certainly, having regular checkups and tests is a smart idea, however, it is far better to have an established checklist and specific protocol for which to diagnose and solve problems which can arise when a piece of machinery is being used constantly. OSHA dictates that without regular maintenance of all machinery, the work environment is considered hazardous and dangerous.
Keeping machines well maintained, is obviously one of the most important aspects of modern industry. Since the dawn of industrialization, people who were experts in maintenance, repairing, and diagnosing machines were entirely invaluable. That being said, when the machine is performing such a systematic and important role - like those machines which work with packaging and the application of stretch film - maintenance can be even more crucial.
