Preventative Maintenance

It's important to keep up with routine preventative maintenance(PM) on your robots to ensure long life and optimal functionality.  Just as you change the oil and filters on your car, you need to PM your robots.  Our field service team has the tools, experience, and knowledge to perform robot PMs properly and efficiently.  Different robot brands and models require specific lubricants, tools, and procedures to perform the PMs properly.  Improper robot preventative maintenance procedures can cause damage to your robots, resulting in damaged motors, seals, and more.  Sherman Industries supports robot brands such as ABB, Fanuc, Motoman, Kuka, Nachi, Panasonic, Universal Robots, Mitsubishi, and More.  Contact us to schedule your robot service and learn why some of the largest companies in the world trust Sherman Industries with their robots.   

Ensure Longevity

Robot preventative maintenance is critical to ensuring the longevity and optimal performance of robotic systems in manufacturing environments.  By adhering to OEM maintenance schedule, manufacturers can extend the lifespan of their industrial robots, optimize operational efficiency, and ultimately reduce overall maintenance costs over the robot's lifecycle.

Tailored Programs

We provide PM programs tailored to you and your needs.  No matter how many robots you have, we have preventative maintenance plans that fit your needs.  We will schedule all robot PM's in advance to ensure you have your robots running optimally when you need them. Custom preventative maintenance programs are available upon request to meet the needs of you and your application. 

A Tier Above

Our robot PM's are a tier above industry standard. Our preventative maintenance plans include the OEM recommended maintenance as well as additional services such as a full system backup, backlash checks, detailed condition reports, and more.  We provide a detailed report that will breakdown the condition of the robot and recommendations.  

A Backup, Backup

While our experienced service engineers are on-site performing preventative maintenance on your robots, we will take a full backup of every system.  We will give you a copy of each robots backup on a flash drive, and we will file a copy as well. Therefore, if you are ever in need, you know that Sherman Industries has a copy of the backup from the last time we did the PM.
