It is time to invest in the capital assets of your scaling industrial bakery operation. Because you are an economical business owner, as well as someone who places value in the reputation of trusted brands, you may be considering used Mecatherm industrial bakery equipment or refurbished options from another manufacturer known for quality and innovation. As you explore the equipment that makes the most sense for your bakery production line, it’s important to also consider the processes and resources required for the proper maintenance of the equipment you choose in order to preserve the value of your investment.

Use Manufacturer Maintenance Recommendations

Both preventative equipment maintenance and rapid responses to the varying degrees of equipment failure are essential for effective stewardship of your capital assets. Most manufacturers provide guidance on which parts and systems would benefit from inspections, and whether that should be done daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly, or yearly. These manufacturer recommendations for preventative or routine maintenance may also outline particular issues to look for upon inspection, such as wear and tear of certain parts, deposits or build up, or evidence the equipment needs recalibration. If you utilize the recommendations for maintenance, you are likely to avoid bigger, expensive repairs in the future, which not only cost you in parts and repair services but also may interrupt your daily operations and goods production. Incorporating recommended equipment maintenance into your procedures is an important part of running a tight operation, just like routine cleaning, and staff safety training and equipment operation certification. Your diligence with maintenance ensures a solid return on investment by lessening the risk for unexpected, costly repairs and by preserving the equipment’s value for potential future buyers who are looking for the security of purchasing regularly, reliably maintenanced equipment.

Document Your Maintenance Procedures

Now that you’ve chosen the used industrial bakery equipment type to invest in for your business and you’ve become familiar with the manufacturer recommendations for preventative maintenance, the next step is to develop a strategy and system for documenting all maintenance events, processes, and repairs. This procedure documentation should operate like both an ongoing health record and instructions for first aid. It is important to codify the frequency and type of equipment inspections you’ve determined are necessary, triggers for larger maintenance events such as parts replacement, and the methods for performing and recording maintenance. Some newer or more technologically-advanced equipment will automatically prompt and document maintenance as a function of the equipment operating system, but even a spreadsheet that outlines the dates and type of inspections and the dates, type, servicer, and cost of completed repairs will do. Determine which employees will own this recording responsibility for each piece of equipment, make these procedures available to them, and be sure to go over their documentation efficacy in their employee reviews.
