- Company & Career
For food plants, the goal is to have continuous operation with limited maintenance and zero downtime. Often, when problems arise, entire production lines come to a halt. Food production is a harsh environment which requires highly durable gearboxes that can handle rigid washdowns. When gearboxes fail, time is money as you wait for maintenance to fix or replace the unit. Downtime is one of the most common challenges faced in the food industry, with the annual downtime for food production being over 10 weeks a year, according to the Harting Technology Group. That’s a lot of lost time and money.
