Customer peace of mind: this is the main benefit of joining MorganTecnica’s extended warranty program* for a selection of machines.
This option allows customers to receive up to two additional years’ warranty, in addition to the standard 1 year, on any faults or defects in non-consumable parts, and applies to all spreading machines range and to multi-layer cutting machines in the “Next” line.
The choice of joining the extended warranty program is totally free and does not involve any additional costs: the customer is simply required to follow the preventive maintenance plan provided by MorganTecnica.
But why is it important to rely on the preventive maintenance plan?
Because preventing breakdowns is the best way to save money and not slow down the production chain. Machine repairs after a breakdown has occurred have a major impact on both costs and production efficiency.
MorganTecnica has thus estimated the average lifetime of machine parts, which makes it possible to plan replacement, through the purchase of specific kits, before incurring serious damage. This is possible thanks to the planning of maintenance operations at 500, 1000, 2000, and 4000 hours of machine automatic cycle.
THE 6 REASONS WHY PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE IS BENEFICIAL
1 – BETTER COST MANAGEMENT
The planning of interventions is essential for optimal management of production costs. Breakdowns are more costly than regular maintenance: the cost of a repair can be up to 50 times higher than a planned maintenance operation.
Downtime caused by a breakdown inevitably leads to a serious slowdown, or even stoppage, of production, with serious repercussions also on the operativity of the workforce.
2 – SPARE PARTS ALWAYS ON HAND
The supply crisis has worsened the seriousness of a breakdown or downtime, as it is sometimes impossible to predict the availability of a specific spare part, which also depends on its shipping and customs clearance times.
Acquiring spare parts in advance makes it possible to have spare parts always available at the time of intervention.
3 – BETTER PRODUCTION MANAGEMENT
MorganTecnica’s programmed maintenance allows production rates to be organized perfectly: the machine warns the operator when the time for intervention approaches, which improves downtime management. The service intervals also correspond to the routine and periodic maintenance of the machine, for example in conjunction with cleaning and waste removal operations.
4 – QUALIFIED PERSONNEL
Work is always carried out by qualified personnel, who plan it in the best possible way. The customer can always count on trained professionals, supplied either directly by MorganTecnica Spa or by its extensive international technical assistance network. This prevents sudden breakdowns from being handled by unqualified personnel, who are therefore unprepared and unable to analyze the type of work to be carried out in the best possible way.
5 – PURCHASING MECHANICAL PARTS AT A LOWER PRICE
With the maintenance kits, MorganTecnica customers also have access to the purchase of new mechanical and electrical parts at an advantageous price compared with the purchase of a single part. The savings for the customer can be as much as 45% in the case of specific mechanical parts.
6 – SOFTWARE UPDATES
The programming of the interventions concerns not only the hardware but also the software: those who adhere to the plan, in fact, have the possibility to update the programs of the machines at an advantageous price. Some software upgrades included in the extended warranty are even free of charge. This means that customers can enjoy the full potential of their machines, even months or years after their purchase.
Lower costs, higher productivity and continued machine performance – that’s what you get with MorganTecnica’s extended warranty program.
Extended warranty of up to three years provide peace of mind and security for customers – a valuable opportunity that only MorganTecnica provides in its sector.
