American hydraulic equipment manufacturer Oilgear states that reactionary maintenance to hydraulic systems can be avoided with the implementation of an aftermarket service contract.
Years of design and manufacturing of a range of hydraulic components has allowed Oilgear to develop the in-house expertise necessary to provide a quality aftermarket service to their clients.
The aftermarket service offered by the hydraulic equipment manufacturer includes regular site visits by a service engineer, where the condition of the hydraulic system is assessed and a proactive maintenance campaign ensures continuous care is offered year round.
This means that measures can be taken to ensure that all equipment is functioning properly and that potential issues are dealt with before serious problems occur. As part of the service contract, Oilgear offers installation, repair and replacement of equipment whenever necessary. The service contract could even allow for substitute pumps, valves and components to be installed during planned maintenance on existing equipment – negating the need for site downtime.
The Oilgear service contracts are not only beneficial for sites already using the manufacturers own hydraulic equipment, as the service provider has stated that in cases where equipment is out of date and parts are not available, Oilgear will be able to reverse engineer a solution that fits the needs of the site in question.
The hydraulic system service plan offered by Oilgear minimises the effects that maintenance has on site productivity. With the knowledge and expertise of an Oilgear service engineer on site, potential issues with equipment can be solved before production is slowed or halted.
With almost a 100 years of expertise, Oilgear has experience in servicing almost every conceivable application in any industry around the world. Its aftermarket service extends beyond it own product and hydraulic packages, meaning that various markets can benefit from its services.
