In This Article

At Motion Drives and Controls, we know that the key to long-term success lies not just in the efficiency of production processes, but also in the reliability of the machinery that drives them. This is where servicing and preventative maintenance play a crucial role. We understand the significance of keeping your equipment in top-notch condition to ensure uninterrupted productivity and safety for all. That's why we're proud to offer a comprehensive guide to preventative maintenance, aimed at safeguarding your success.

Our Approach

Regular servicing and repairs are the cornerstone of preventative maintenance. Our team of expert engineers are always ready to assist with any service and repair needs, whether it's setting up a new production line, refurbishing existing machinery, or addressing immediate repair requirements. With years of experience and a commitment to excellence, our engineers are dedicated to ensuring the longevity and safety of all your equipment.

Regular Maintenance

When it comes to heavy machinery, regular maintenance is not just a good practice – it's essential. Businesses should establish a structured maintenance schedule outlining specific tasks, frequencies, and responsible personnel. Utilise a computerised maintenance management system (CMMS) to track maintenance activities and automate reminders for upcoming tasks. Conduct regular inspections to identify potential issues early on and address them promptly. Train employees on proper equipment operation, maintenance procedures, and safety protocols to prevent avoidable damage and accidents. Maintain comprehensive records of maintenance activities, including dates, performed tasks, and any observations or repairs made. Finally, prioritise communication and collaboration between maintenance teams, equipment operators, and management to ensure a streamlined and efficient maintenance process.

Preventative Maintenance

At Motion Drives & Controls, we believe in taking a proactive approach to maintenance, rather than waiting for problems to arise. Our preventative maintenance programs are tailored to your specific needs and equipment requirements, ensuring that every aspect of your machinery is meticulously cared for. From routine inspections and lubrication to troubleshooting and repairs, we've got you covered every step of the way.

​​Implementing preventative safety measures in machine operation offers numerous benefits to businesses and workers alike. Firstly, it significantly reduces the risk of workplace accidents and injuries, creating a safer and more secure environment for employees. By identifying and addressing potential hazards before they escalate, businesses can minimise downtime, avoid costly repairs, and maintain continuous productivity. Additionally, prioritising safety measures enhances employee morale and satisfaction, fostering a positive work culture. Moreover, adherence to safety protocols demonstrates a commitment to regulatory compliance, reducing legal risks and liabilities. Overall, investing in preventative safety measures not only protects workers and equipment but also contributes to the long-term success and sustainability of the business.


In conclusion, preventative maintenance is not just about fixing problems – it's about preventing them from occurring in the first place. By investing in regular servicing and repairs, businesses can protect their assets, maximise uptime, and ensure the safety and well-being of their workforce.
