Lift Maintenance – Tesla Lifts – Comprehensive Preventative Maintenance.
Elevators and lifts are pieces of heavy machinery, and with the passage of time wear and tear can take its toll on the way any given lift solution functions. In addition to the damage that gets done over the course of an elevator’s lifespan purely from the way it’s used, it’s also important to consider that from time to time lifts simply break down.
Lift Maintenance 101 – What is MTBF and what is its relevance.
The Meantime Between Failures – MTBF is dependent on the age of the elevator. The older the elevator, the lesser the MTBF. This means that with an older elevator, the lift maintenance company needs to service the elevator more frequently. The lift maintenance company also needs to be on the lookout for parts that are about to breakdown and needs to have spares in its arsenal to keep the lift availability to a maximum. At Tesla Lifts, not only do we carry spare parts for our own lifts, we also maintain an arsenal of the most common spare parts and boards required for all other Australian lift suppliers. Please refer to this article by Poly Technic University in HongKong on Lift maintenance for more information.
The cheaper models are particularly susceptible to just giving up the ghost now and again, which is part of the reason why we here at TESLA LIFTS only work with the highest-quality brands in the industry.
As well as repairing lifts when they break down to a degree, it’s also important to perform regular, scheduled maintenance on your lift as a way of keeping tabs on the machine and figuring out whether something’s not working sooner rather than later.
