Preventative Maintenance and Repairs

The industrial maintenance team at Mathews Mechanical can save you significant time and money by maintaining your equipment on a recurring schedule. Our preventative maintenance service agreements help stop issues before failures occur, maximizing up-time and reducing mechanical breakdowns.

Making preventative maintenance a priority for your industrial equipment means a longer shelf life, higher performance and increased productivity, a safer working environment, and less wasted energy. 

Explore some of the industrial equipment we service, and see how our preventative maintenance plan could make a difference for your business:

Conveyor Systems and Part Retrieval Carousels

Conveyor systems are the lifeblood of material handling and many other industrial operations, making it essential to remain in peak working condition. When you have Mathews Mechanical regularly checking on your conveyor systems and part retrieval carousels, performing preventative maintenance, and ensuring no part of your equipment is faulty, you protect your entire operation against a myriad of failures that could cost significant time and money.

Our preventative mechanical service and repairs for conveyor systems and part retrieval carousels may include the following:

  • Troubleshooting conveyor belt alignment
  • Replacing worn-out belts
  • Inspecting belts for edge damage, delamination, stretching, abrasions, and material carryback
  • Assessing rollers and idlers for misalignment or damage
  • Checking roller and idler tension and adjusting as necessary
  • Testing of all equipment to verify peak functionality

Compactors & Balers

Your compactors and balers should have a long and productive service life, but only if they are correctly cared for and maintained. Mathews Mechanical can help you maintain a clean and efficient recycling and disposal process at your facility by inspecting and performing necessary upkeep on your compactors and balers.

Our preventative mechanical service and repairs for compactors and balers may include the following:

  • Evaluation of overall equipment performance and condition
  • Greasing all fittings
  • Thorough inspection of cylinder welds and seals
  • Inspecting all hoses, crimps, and clamps, tightening as needed
  • Inspecting motor, starter, and pump for signs of wear or leaks
  • Checking electrical connections and wiring for signs of damage
  • Verifying the reliability of loading doors, safety switches, and other safety features
  • Adjusting pressure gauges and limit switches as needed

Dock Doors & Levelers

With so many workers and products constantly on the move in the docking bay, you need to be confident that your dock doors and levelers will do their job and not pose any safety hazard to your team. Dock doors and levelers bridge the gap between your trucks and the loading dock, making them a high-risk location for work-related injuries.

Rather than waiting until a failure occurs, which could lead to a significant injury, you should prioritize regular preventative maintenance to keep this essential equipment reliable and safe to use.

Our preventative maintenance service and repairs for dock doors and levelers may include the following:

  • Assessing the amount of debris below the leveler and advising on proper upkeep procedures
  • Checking and replacing lip out mechanism
  • Lubricating steel and moving parts
  • Inspecting dock seals and bumpers
  • Evaluating structure for signs of corrosion or damage that may require further attention

For hydraulic dock doors and levelers, we will also inspect cylinders, hoses, fittings, and power units for any wear or damage that may negatively affect functionality. We check hydraulic fluid levels at every service call, refilling as needed to keep the machine operable.

Hydraulic/Pneumatic Motors, Pumps & Cylinders

Dock doors and levelers may not be the only equipment in your facility that makes use of hydraulic or pneumatic motors, pumps, and cylinders. Hydraulics and pneumatics are commonly used for automotive manufacturing, construction, water treatment facilities, and even amusement park rides. Equipment that involves high loads and heavy lifting relies on the tremendous power hydraulic and pneumatic cylinders, motors, and pumps can provide.

Because hydraulics often are used with extremely heavy equipment and materials, failures can be catastrophic and dangerous. Mathews Mechanical thoroughly inspects and maintains your hydraulic or pneumatic systems with preventative maintenance to ensure a safe environment.

Our preventative maintenance service and repairs for hydraulic and pneumatic systems include the following:

  • Inspecting all electrical components, including conduit boxes and control boxes
  • Assessing hoses, cylinders, fittings, and power units for wear or damage that may require replacement
  • Checking hydraulic and pneumatic fluid levels, refilling when necessary to maintain operability
  • Lubricating moving parts
  • Evaluating equipment overall for signs of wear and tear that may require replacement

Hoists & Cranes

Preventative maintenance is crucial to keep your hoists and cranes in proper working condition and ensure safe operation. A quality hoist and crane installation company should provide you with an ongoing service plan that meets your unique needs and requirements, and that’s what you can expect when you partner with Mathews Mechanical.

Our professional mechanical contractors are experts with all manner of crane and lifting systems, including jib crane systems, workstation crane systems, hoists, load balancers, monorails, and gantry cranes. Our ongoing maintenance and repairs for your hoists and cranes will help you stay compliant with OSHA standards and ensure the safety of crane operators.

Our preventative maintenance service and repairs for hoists and cranes include the following:

  • Load testing
  • Lubricating and adjusting
  • Inspecting chain for wear and cleaning off foreign materials and debris
  • Checking oil levels
  • Assessing switches, hook catches, brakes, and other parts for wear or damage
  • Ensuring all connections are in place and tightening screws as needed
  • Reviewing below-the-hook devices for proper crane use and safe lifting

Stretch Wrap Machines

Stretch wrap machines are a valuable part of material handling and packing, as they speed up the process of wrapping products and provide necessary containment. Especially in the food and beverage industry, you need to know that you can rely on your stretch wrap machines to provide a fast and reliable seal on your products as they move through the packing process.

Regular maintenance and inspection of your stretch wrap machines will extend their lifespan, ensure consistent performance, and minimize downtime. In addition to maintaining best practices for reducing buildup and cleaning your stretch wrap machines regularly, preventative maintenance will catch any significant wear or damage and can help you know when to replace parts or machines before they break down.

Our preventative maintenance service and repairs for stretch wrap machines include the following:

  • Cleaning buildup from sensors and rotating mechanisms
  • Lubricating chains and grease points for smooth operation
  • Inspecting belts, sensors, and transmission mechanisms for wear or damage
  • Checking prestretch rollers and rubber for buildup, wear, or damage
  • Performing a test wrap after all equipment is cleaned and serviced to ensure everything is in working order

High-Pressure Hydraulic Presses

High-pressure hydraulic presses are used for forging, clinching, molding, blanking, punching, deep drawing, and metal forming operations. This makes them a vital component of several industries. These powerful machines can create intricate shapes with economical material use, but only if they are operating at peak ability.

Hydraulic press failures may start small and harmless, but the slightest odd vibration or strange noise can result in significant damage and compromise operator safety if left unchecked.

Our preventative maintenance service and repairs for high-pressure hydraulic presses may include the following:

  • Checking hydraulic lines for leaks
  • Refilling fluid levels as needed
  • Inspecting surrounding area for loose or missing bolts
  • Lubricating rods, bushings, and rams as needed
  • Checking oil temperature
  • Assessing electrical components for wear or damage
