BD Orienter Preventative Maintenance


Ontrack offers a 23 point Preventative Maintenance Inspection and Service Report for all Ontrack and former Bottling Development (BD) Orienters. The inspection and report details the current conditions for all major mechanical, electrical and safety components of the Ontrack/BD Orienter. A detailed listing of these components is shown below.

The report includes an analysis of the ‘Current Condition’ of each inspected area along with accompanying ‘Recommendations’ and ‘Required Action’. The Current Condition describes each inspected area in its current sate and benchmarks it to the original factory specification at the time of build. The Recommended and/or Required Action provides maintenance staff with a course of action to either return or maintain each area to the original factory specifications including a schedule of any ongoing maintenance suggestions.
