Improving Equipment uptime

by editor

Proactively maintaining a regular servicing schedule for the excavator attachment is tried and tested way to cut downtime, avoid costly repairs, improve the overall efficiency of operation and to prolong the life of your investment.

There are multiple approaches to maintain machinery attachments and one of the most effective ways to improve machine maintenance is to collect and analyse data.

Rammer has brought several innovations to the hydraulic rock breaker market, including constant blow energy, idle blow protection, attachment-mounted dust suppression, automatic lubrication and now with integrated smart technology, Rammer is helping customers avoid unnecessary downtime.

Rammer was the first on the market to add remote monitoring system, RD3 for hydraulic rock breakers.

The RD3 monitoring device is attached to the rock breaker pinpointing the exact location of the equipment and customers can simply log into the MyFleet platform to see all the data on operating hours, how the rock breaker is being operated and required service intervals.

PROACTIVE MONITORING
Correct operation is vital to minimize the chance that rock breaker fails and causes costly unscheduled downtime. One of the major causes of premature failure in rock breakers is long cycles where the operator continues to hit the button and the piston keeps striking for an extended period of time.

By using advanced electronics to sense the impacts and stresses on the rock breaker, RD3 provides information on how the rock breaker is being operated. With the RD3 data, customers can provide operator education when needed to avoid maintenance costs due to premature failure.

PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE
Simply by logging into the MyFleet platform, customers can see all the data on operating hours and required service intervals helping them manage service periods and minimize machinery downtime by scheduling maintenance during times of least impact on production.

With downtime planned at optimal times based on the data of rock breaker usage, maintenance programs can be streamlined to improve efficiency and reduce costs.

The hour meter shows MyFleet users the total time the rock breaker has been engaged in rock breaking that can also ensure a higher re-sale value as the actual work hours are known.
