Anyone who is in or familiar with the manufacturing business knows there are six categories or most common causes of productivity losses that are almost universally experienced, regardless which of the industry one is in.
The six are none other than: breakdowns or equipment failure; setup/adjustments; idling/minor stops; speed loss; defects; reduced yield.
When it comes to equipment and maintenance, or simply optimization of equipment use, there is no such thing as relying on blind luck. Instead, one product that maintenance professionals could always count on is the WD-40®, for which many have found diverse applications for in their works, be it in automotive, power generation, shipbuilding, railway, printing, mining, mould production, and many more.
For example, in the wind power industry, WD-40® helps in the installation of wind power equipment in wind farms and for routine maintenance of these equipment. While it cleans, it lubricates and rust-proof metal parts like bolt, screw, spindle, high speed brakes, yaws gear and bearings, brackets, pneumatic and hand tools.
As such, it extends equipment life and more importantly, reduces failure rates and maintenance cost. It also reduces cleaning procedures for the equipment it is used on, effectively requiring less manpower costs for maintenance work.
WD-40® is heavily relied on because it displaces moisture, so it quickly dries out electrical systems to eliminate moisture-induced short circuits. It also loosens rust-to-metal bonds and frees stuck, frozen or rusted metal parts. It also protects metal surfaces with corrosion-resistant ingredients to shield against moisture and other corrosive elements.
WD-40® is also great for cleaning because it gets under grease, grime, and gunk. Its non-aerosol formulas also dissolve adhesives, allowing easy removal of labels, tape, stickers, and excess bonding material. Meanwhile, its lubricating ingredients are widely dispersed and hold firmly to all moving parts.
It also comes in various sizes, and can be sprayed on, brushed on, or dipped and wiped. Depending on the use, professionals have chosen straight-up smart straws to work with their WD-40®, or a flexible 8″ straw that bends to fit whichever hard-to-reach crevice. Indeed, there is probably nowhere the WD-40® can’t reach.
Available around the world in a variety of sizes, the WD-40® has also diversified into a new range of specialized products.
