Equipment inspections

Inspection and testing of equipment is an exciting area of service offered by AXIS Inspection. 

Many equipment inspections are governed by Codes, standards, specifications and safety regulations. Still, there is another whole group of items that we inspect that is simply done because the client sees value in having their equipment inspected.

Why inspect something if you don’t have to?

We get the question, “Do I have to have this inspected?”  The answer is often that there are no specific requirements for that particular item. However, it is often better to be safe than sorry and we are seeing a trend towards voluntarily submitting equipment to preventative maintenance and safety inspections.

Safety Inspections:

Many pieces of equipment are inspected because there have been injuries associated with equipment failure, or an assessment has been done, and it has been determined that the likeliness of equipment failure and the possibility of injury is significant enough to warrant a third-party inspection.

Preventative Maintenance:

Inspecting equipment before a breakdown is a cost-efficient way to ensure productivity remains constant. We can inspect equipment during scheduled downtime and ensure any minor deficiencies are identified and repaired, rather than the equipment breaking down during production.

Preventative maintenance and inspection of industrial equipment is the equivalent of an oil change in your car. You make sure that you check and change the oil regularly so that the engine doesn’t blow during a hot summer day when you are stuck in traffic! Inspecting your equipment during a down day ensures that when the big orders come in, your production isn’t delayed due to equipment breakdown.
