The basic scope of the maintenance work is to ensure components are in acceptable condition, saving on long-term maintenance costs. Preventive maintenance measures ensure your machine is in operational condition. A scheduled maintenance service plan guarantees the quality level of the end-product and machine runnability for 1-2 years. From receiving to delivery, our specialists can guide you through maintenance processes and selecting spare parts that will be optimal for your board and paper machine.

From timely to condition based-maintenance

The condition-based maintenance services enable planning maintenance actions based on the actual condition of your rolls. Customers can see a significant reduction in maintenance costs as root causes of faults can been identified and maintenance of rolls will be improved leading to extended roll lifetimes and optimized maintenance intervals.
