Prevention


Customer support agreements

We offer complete and customized solutions based on your needs, designed to maximize the life of  your machines, both Cat and other brands, maintaining full efficiency over time. We can advise each customer on the best solution to adopt, from the most simple to the most complete, e.g. condition monitoring service with remote control, fluid analysis and ordinary and extraordinary maintenance.

During routine maintenance the following are performed: 

  • Controls and registrations
  • Instrumental tests
  • Security checks and controls
  • Oil and filter replacement
  • Carrying out of small repairs free of charge 

as stated in the manufacturer's user and maintenance manual. You are guaranteed: 

  • The use of an increasingly efficient machine
  • Reduced consumption
  • Minimized and scheduled downtime
  • Preserved value of the machine


Condition monitoring

Based on the data transmitted via Vision Link satellite technology our prevention team analyzes the main operating parameters of your machines, comparing them with those provided by Cat and with historical data. Should any anomaly emerge the team reports the possible risks and recommends what action should be taken. 

 

 

By accessing the Vision Link website through our portal you can constantly keep track of consumption data, location and any machine malfunction codes transmitted by the Product Link device installed on your machines.

 

You can: 

  • Receive an accurate report on situations of potential risk or incorrect use and relative suggestions

  • Check and reduce consumption for the entire fleet
  • Improve machine performance and avoid unexpected costs
  • Carry out maintenance punctually, reducing operating costs
  • Customers who activate the service on 3 or more machines receive a monthly fleet usage report including a comparison with machines of the same range in Italy

     

 

 

 


Fluid Analysis

Our specialists carry out more than 40,000 analyses per year on samples taken from the machines of our customers, in order to monitor wear and tear of the main mechanical components and detect the existence of pollutants (not only water, diesel fuel or ashes but up to 18 different elements and with sizes of up to 5 microns) in fluids. A specialized staff compares the level of the various pollutants detected with the reference values ​​provided by the manufacturer and with the previous analyses, and sends back an accurate diagnosis to help prevent breakage and plan maintenance interventions, thus optimizing downtime.

Our customers receive the results of the analysis in electronic format, and they are also available online via the Vision Link portal (if the machines are covered by this service).

Advantages:

  • Monitoring the wear and tear of the main mechanical components and scheduling any necessary downtime

  • Intervening before a malfunction occurs 
  • Reduced repair times thanks to simplified diagnostics that go straight to the heart of the problem 

  • Extending the life of lubricants
