In recent years, maintenance departments have been under increasing pressure to not only reduce operating costs but also to increase operational output and efficiency. The maintenance department can therefore play a critical role in reducing downtime and inventory by selecting longer-lasting components to extend outage intervals. Component repair rather than replacement produce immediate costs savings and negates expensive downtime waiting for part delivery. Furthermore, the refurbished part will have its life extended if a wear-resistant coating is applied. Castolin Eutectic is a leading global player in fighting wear and providing specialist joining solutions in harsh operating conditions. Analysing wear mechanisms and finding the right solution to protect your machinery and equipment are the core tasks of our 400 field application specialists.
