LAS VEGAS—Manufacturing and distribution operations rely on mission-critical automated systems to deliver consistent high performance, with no tolerance for unplanned downtime. At PACK EXPO Las Vegas 2017 booth #C-3906, Intelligrated showcases its comprehensive range of system assessments, including mechanical, spare parts, risk and controls, that form the foundation of proactive lifecycle management.

The thorough approach and OEM (original equipment manufacturer) expertise of Intelligrated Lifecycle Support Services delivers an assessments process that establishes baseline conditions, recommends remedial steps and guides long-term lifecycle planning. Engineers with equipment-specific expertise visit customer sites to evaluate component condition and provide recommendations for service, replacement, upgrades, modifications and more to ultimately help maximize system reliability and performance.

  • Mechanical assessments outline everything from parts in need of replacement to dormant mechanical problems to provide recommended modifications and upgrades based on projected performance requirements;
  • Parts assessments appraise and revamp parts storerooms based on recommended stock and optimal organization for quick access, including online reordering via OnTimeParts.com;
  • Risk assessments evaluate equipment according to OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration is an agency of the United States Department of Labor), ISO (an independent, non-governmental international organization) or site-specific safety compliance standards, and provide recommended upgrades to ensure workplace safety;
  • Controls assessments ensure controls function smoothly, are up-to-date and fully supported, especially important for solutions like robotics that depend on software-driven controls to enable broad functionality.

In addition to proactive maintenance, assessments provide the necessary information to prioritize repairs and evaluate the scope of modifications and upgrades to make the best use of limited resources and better align with budget planning processes. This is integral for all types of operations, from existing facilities­ planning for production increases to companies projecting needs for greenfield sites.

“Today, material handling systems are more complex than ever, yet resources are stretched thin. Assessments offer a solution to make the most of such limited resources, offering key indicators of short-term asset health and helping optimize capital planning over the long term,” says Intelligrated chief administrative officer Ed Puisis. “Intelligrated’s skill and expertise not only takes the temperature of systems, it provides a comprehensive lifecycle plan to keep critical investments performing at peak efficiency and avoid being blindsided by costly unplanned downtime.”
