When you are purchasing any industrial lifting equipment from the crane manufacturers in India one of the factors to take into account is the ongoing maintenance of your cranes. It is not possible to ensure the optimal performance of your crane without good maintenance. In order to make it easy for the customers almost all the crane manufacturing companies offer AMCs or Annual Maintenance Contracts for the servicing of the cranes that they supply.
You should not consider AMCs as an unwanted expense at the time of purchasing your cranes. All types of cranes, regardless of their quality and capacity need to be serviced regularly. When you do not have any supporting AMC, then you could ignore this responsibility of yours and you could fail to service your equipment regularly. At times, you may even want to postpone the servicing expense for as long as you could. This however could prove to be a very bad move as far as your crane’s overall performance and health are concerned. On the other hand when you sign up for an AMC, you would have already paid upfront for the servicing of your EOT cranes. As per the contract, your crane servicing company will visit your facility for regular inspection of your equipment. This will save you from unexpected huge repair expenses.
Periodic service visits will you maintain your cranes in good condition and this will prevent repairs and issues. This will increase the crane uptime significantly.
When you are signing up for the AMC with the cranes company make sure to check the terms and conditions of the service contract. You should know that not all AMCs are made equal. Therefore, you should find out first the inclusions and exclusions of your AMC so that you know what to expect and whether you are getting the best value for your money.
All the AMCs will have a certain number of free inspection visits by the manufacturer. Added to that they should also attend your unexpected, or unscheduled service calls depending on the performance of your equipment. Having an AMC for your cranes is like having a team in standby to attend to the issues with your cranes but without having to retain the service team in-house but at a very nominal cost.
A well serviced and maintained EOT crane will certainly perform better. It will have fewer maintenance issues and breakdowns. This in turn will reduce the crane down time. In any manufacturing environment, downtimes will have several negative impacts on the production cycle.
You will have to therefore find the most trusted company to purchase your cranes ensuring they also provide ongoing maintenance support in the form of AMCs. Your EOT cranes need to be handled with care right from day one. Any negligence on your part would turn out to be an expensive mistake. Tread cautiously so that you could enjoy optimal service from your cranes and get the best value for your money.
