Total Productive Maintenance

Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) is a Japanese philosophy used in many facets of industry. It seeks to integrate equipment maintenance into the manufacturing process to eliminate waste or losses while producing quality products. By producing as fast as possible with no reduction or no unplanned downtime, the goal is to increase overall equipment effectiveness and reduce equipment failure.

By working with SKF and combining maintenance strategy review and TPM, you can expect to reduce equipment damage and losses, increase machine reliability and production availability, reduce overall maintenance costs, and employ an optimized maintenance strategy. We achieve this by concentrating preventive, predictive and proactive maintenance efforts where they will do the most good, eliminating waste and developing a fully documented basis for the maintenance program. This process then becomes a "living program" for continual maintenance improvement and management of change.
