The importance of keeping spares

It’s every production team’s nightmare – a machine standstill. There’s nothing worse than finding yourself hours or even days behind on a job because part of your production line breaking down due to requiring a part replacement. Not only can this cost a significant amount of money and affect business, it also leaves you with employees who you’re paying while they are unable to do their jobs further down your workflow process.

In an ideal world, you’ll have a whole selection of spares tucked away for exactly this kind of situation, and, in fact, for many businesses, a catalogue of components to hand should be considered an essential. However, we know from experience and increasing job pressure that this isn’t always the case, and that’s when you find yourself stuck.

In the current economic climate, having the capacity to be a flexible and agile manufacturing operation is of great advantage, allowing you to take on last-minute or long-term jobs at your will.
