Preventive Maintenance Is Just as Important as Repairs

Even if you have experienced operators and a dependable team at nexAir to address all your repair needs, it’s important to observe timely preventive maintenance. Routine care and inspection can reduce equipment damage, unscheduled downtime, and overall operations costs. It also maximizes productivity and efficiency.

Some of the most common preventive measures include keeping the liners clean and dirt-free, replacing contact tips regularly, and investing in the right type of cooling to minimize the risk of the equipment overheating. Of course, it’s also important to regularly update your machine software or reach out to welding equipment specialists so they can find ways to make your machine work faster and more precisely.

Here are other things you have to keep in mind when it comes to equipment maintenance:

  • Make sure your electrical systems are working properly because they are the primary power source for most welding equipment. An unstable electrical system could lead to accidents, injuries, and faulty welding machines.
  • Maintain proper storage for welding tools and equipment that aren’t in use. On a related note, if you’re getting equipment from storage, check whether they’re in good condition before using them again.
  • Conduct routine maintenance so your welders can watch out for anything that requires attention at the end of the day. Welding equipment professionals can also detect and address damages before they get worse.

Stay on top of your maintenance and repair schedule to guarantee your welders’ safety and ensure that your welding machines are working at peak performance for longer.

Be Mindful of Common Mistakes That Cause Machine Damage

Prevent further damage and costly repairs by being mindful of these common welding mistakes:

  • Not setting aside time to prepare and clean your welds properly
  • Not paying attention to the type of shielding gas you use
  • Reusing old or damaged welding equipment

It’s also a good idea to schedule training and refresher courses for your welders so they can keep up with the latest welding tools and technologies, resulting in minimal damage to your equipment.
