CAIC-IMEC Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) Workshop

  • Moraine Valley Community College-Building T 9000 West College Drive Palos Heights, IL, 60463 United States (map)

This workshop, organized by CAIC and held at Moraine Valley Community College, examined how Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) could assist manufacturers with the following strategies:

  • Training on equipment evaluation
  • Basic measurement of equipment performance
  • Cleaning, inspections, repairs, modifications
  • Establishing basic system conditions
  • Setting up meaningful daily operator checks
  • Setting up maintenance PM’s
  • Use of predictive maintenance tools

It was explained how a TPM strategy could result in dramatic reductions and, at times, outright prevention of equipment breakdowns & production stoppages, improve quality issues due to equipment variability, and eliminate slow run speeds (less than what equipment is designed for) and unpredictable prevention maintenance service.
