Topper Industrial Preventive Maintenance Program Prevents Spare Parts Outages

Topper Industrial Preventive Maintenance Program Prevents Spare Parts Outages

Topper Industrial established a predictive maintenance and spare parts program allowing manufacturers using cart delivery to proactively convert repair records, modifications, parts used, preventive maintenance tasks, and failures. The preventive maintenance task program prevents spare parts outages and reduce labor costs for repairs.

As Topper Industrial has pioneered the North American Fork Truck Free movement, there were two guiding principles: safety and lean manufacturing. The lean calculation is simple: help customers to save money. Lean organizations follow the dollars and identify where they could have done better, looking at parts costs, inventory holding costs, labor/overtime costs, shipping costs, downtime costs, and costs of quality issues. Having carts out of use is a real cost. OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness) measures the actual production and utilization versus the optimal. Cart waiting for replacement casters create a cost. The relative size of cost-saving opportunities can be significant which is why Topper developed a maintenance plan to keep all carts on the plant floor 99 percent of the time.

Manufacturers globally need help managing equipment and manufacturing maintenance to run efficient operations. Reducing labor costs, troubleshooting failures, and ensuring that spare parts are available when needed cannot be an after-thought.

Maintenance implementation plans start before a Topper cart arrives at the customer site.  It increases the reliability of assets, improves processes, and ultimately, maximize return- on-investment.
