A-Z Guide for Maximum Cost Reduction and Increased Equipment Reliability
To remain globally competitive, today's manufacturing operations have greatly improved, but there is one last link in the advancement evolution. The reliability of manufacturing equipment must be improved in order to maximize the productive life of the equipment, eliminate unscheduled shut downs, and reduce operating costs. These are key components to maintaining a smooth work flow and a competitive edge.

Written by peer-recognized industry experts, Lubrication and Maintenance of Industrial Machinery: Best Practices and Reliability provides the necessary tools for maintenance professionals who are responsible for the overall operational functions. With chapters culled from the second edition of the Handbook of Lubrication and Tribology, Volume 1 and a new introductory chapter, this more specialized and focused work supplies critical lubrication information that can be used on a daily basis to achieve greater machine reliability. Incorporating lean methods, this resource can be used by everyone involved in the production process, from supervisors to floor personnel.
