Ones to watch
Keeping equipment out of RTF can feel a bit like missing the forest for the trees. This is an area of production and maintenance that requires attention to the little things that can often be taken for granted. Workers
must be cognizant that smaller components are just as
important as the overall equipment and can, to an extent, be more so.
"If you think about run to failure, there's a series of
components that will become unreliable; they're worn
out or haven't been maintained or adjusted correctly,"
Mr. Brixey said. "Not all things are created equal in
terms of mean time between failure or how many cycles
before something fails."
How many times a bearing or a chain needs to be
greased, for example, isn't templated. It requires a strong
understanding of each component, something the oldschool bakers just instinctively know - what Mr. Brixey
refers to as muscle memory.
"Walk into any plant that is in run to failure, and
you'll likely see a common list of pain points, or things
they wish they'd done differently to prevent it," he suggested. "It's all the interaction with the components and
tightening, lubing, alignment, taking out the slack."
Just look at a standard conveyor. At first glance, there's

not much to improve - a conveyor is a conveyor -
right? Not so fast, according to Mr. Brixey. "Even in that
simple setting, if you had a direct-mounted gearbox versus one that has a chain or belt drive, you've just eliminated no less than four components - the guard, the
belt or chain, and two pulleys," he said.
In other words, simplified design of the equipment
will ultimately lighten the load on what operators and
maintenance workers need to monitor. "Reducing the
complexity by removing more components is step one in
avoiding run to failure," Mr. Brixey advised.
For the components that remain - bearings, for instance - it's important to understand the variations in
quality that affect their longevity. "They can range from
the cheapest you would find on a residential component
and not meant to run more than an hour a day all the
way up to heavy-duty, greaseable ones," Mr. Brixey said.
That said, Mr. Brixey pointed out that some bakers
would rather spend the money on premium bearing
with a better seal to get more usable life specifically because of the lack of labor available to make sure they're
being greased or changed often.
"It wouldn't matter how few touch points on the machine there are. If you don't have anybody to make the
touches, you're almost destined to get into run to failure
at an accelerated rate," he cautioned.
Sometimes, the lack of warm bodies is the issue, but
in many cases, the problem is a shortage of workers who
are properly trained to maintain the equipment.
