At Schneider, we know that regularly maintaining equipment is key to its longevity. Our preventative maintenance programs are designed around regularly scheduled maintenance visits. The goal is to provide operational excellence by improving overall equipment effectiveness and minimizing downtime. These visits can be scheduled at any time and are offered with a discount off the current field service rates without the requirement of a contract.

When should you look at Preventative Maintenance?

If you notice a drop to 80% or below in operational efficiency.

If your machine has been operating more than one year without undergoing any internal preventative maintenance.

Why Preventative Maintenance for robots?

Your robot should be maintained on an annual basis at a minimum. When properly maintained, FANUC robots will provide good, reliable and long-term service. Our Service or Upgrade and Conversion Team will advise you on a preventative maintenance schedule that is the best fit for your specific robot per the recommendations from FANUC.
