Crabtree launches obsolescence report service as part of its preventative maintenance programme


It’s well known that ‘prevention is often better than cure’ because if you can prevent or predict when something ‘bad’ is going to happen you can put measures in place to stop it or plan for it. The same proverb should be applied around the maintenance of your equipment.

Many of our customers have regular servicing and maintenance programmes in place with us which look at the overall running and efficiency of equipment. However now, alongside our maintenance programmes, we are offering customers a full preventative overview report of their machines – for FREE.

Preventative maintenance can help you to plan and therefore minimise the disruption around downtime. It can also help you to reduce costs incurred by unplanned maintenance and the impact this can have on your production schedule.

We draw on our decades of experience in the industry to produce a full overview of your machine and parts, using your machine serial number. It is non-invasive and enables us to highlight any obsolete or mature products and make recommendations on removal and replacing ahead of disaster striking.

This can help you to avoid any unexpected disruption to your lines and improve print quality and efficiencies.

Following delivery of your obsolescence report, if you decide to go ahead with any upgrades we can support you with:

  • Electronic Drives
  • CNC (including new functionality and bespoke consoles)
  • Full main panels
  • Rewiring
  • HMI replacement
  • PLC units
  • Drive and synchronisation systems

You’ll also benefit from our full OEM support, backups, software, schematics, installation and testing, with our flexible payment plans.

If you would like to receive a copy of your free obsolescence report – please note there is no obligation to go ahead with a purchase after receipt – complete the form below including your machine serial number and detail any modifications.
