Maintenance and Facility managers cut equipment downtime, track asset conditions and eliminate confusion while saving hundreds of man hours by visually scheduling and displaying a full year’s preventive maintenance activity on Magnatag’s New MaintenanceMaster® whiteboard system.
“We haven’t missed a date since we began using the boards.” says a US Army Sergeant. “Now that everyone can see our maintenance schedule and what’s coming up, it’s much easier to keep track of what we are doing.” adds a New Jersey Manufacturer. A pharmaceutical company maintenance supervisor says “We post the jobs and due dates on the board, it’s really cut down on paperwork.” “We’ve added hundreds of hours of machine availability by having our PM work displayed where we can see It.” adds a tool manufacturer from PA.
“Our customers tell us the boards are effective, easy to set up and use.” says Magnatag spokesman, Christian Krapf. “You display and schedule preventive maintenance actions for each line item by placing color-coded magnet symbols on the board to show a 52-week plan. A visible item T-card built-into each row holds its maintenance record. The heat-fused printed porcelain-like steel whiteboards, in 3 sizes for up to 148 line items, are built for a lifetime of stain-free use and come in kits with everything needed to operate them.
