Preventative Maintenance


Graphic Innovators offers a program of scheduled preventative maintenance wherein GI technicians, during one week annually, work from splicer through to the folder checking and correcting maintenance areas (tasks?) on each press element. The thrust of our efforts is to address those items normally requiring periodic maintenance that for whatever reason are not addressed by plant maintenance or press crews. Once completed company management receive a detailed report of all items address and the actions taken. This program is designed to minimize the disruption in your press room all the while providing the maximum of productivity insurance and downtime avoidance. Some items, but not all, covered by the program and usually missed by plant personnel are listed here:

- Remove all drive line guarding for inspection of belts, shafts etc for wear and proper adjustment.

- Check all small gearboxes for proper lubrication and state of repair.
Drain print unit gear cases, clean and remove debris, inspect gearing.

- Inspect all placements of all press elements on press pad, insuring all shims are tight.
Spot check all work side enclosures, inspecting rotary unions, register mechanisms and fountain drives.

- Inspect splicer and hoist

- Inspect dryer, insuring proper damper setup and gas usage within proper limits.

- Inspect chill roll rotary unions, valves and piping, drive components and belting.

- Inspect folder gearcase, drain oil and inspect for debris, inspect on the run adjustments, inspect and repair paper transport tapes and inspect and verify all pulleys spin freely.

- Inspect all driven rolls for excessive surface wear and insure condition of drive bearings.
