Machine Tool Preventive & Predictive Maintenance

KRC offers a wide range of machine tool services, but there is one that most people tend to overlook – Preventive Maintenance. Aside from minimizing wear and eliminating nearly all emergency breakdowns, a Preventive Maintenance Program provides a permanent record of the machine maintenance history and its current condition. Planned maintenance allows you to schedule your machine downtime, rather than your machine downtime scheduling you. Studies have proven that a Preventive Maintenance Program creates large savings in machine tool repair costs and increased productivity due to less downtime.

KRC can customize a Preventive Maintenance Program to fit your exact requirements. Whether you are looking for an annual or semi-annual plan, we can help you design, organize, and execute the entire program.

KRC is committed to excellence in planned maintenance to our customers, and we want to build long-term partnerships, providing assistance with present challenges and future planning.
