1.3.4 Maintenance of the inspection system

Careful and professional maintenance is one of the major requirements for the safe operation of the inspection system. Failure to perform the regular maintenance work may result in failure of the inspection system and also represents a hazard for personnel and factory. The regular check is a visual and a functional check. It includes a check of the condition of the system components and devices.
  • The responsibilities for mounting and maintenance work must be defined and observed by the system owner.
  • All maintenance work must be performed by skilled personnel only who is familiar with the system. Maintenance personnel must be in good health, have good vision and hearing capabilities and the capacity to think in three dimensions. These persons are alreadytrained during commissioning of the system.
  • Maintenance must be carried out in a safe manner, ensuring that safe operation is possible between maintenance intervals.
  • If the inspection system is operated in several shifts, it must be properly handed over to the next shift by means of a shift journal. The personnel of the next shift must be informed on any defects. It is recommended to have a fault log and appoint a foreman (fitter or electrician) for monitoring the operation and the maintenance of all system components.
  • Any defects or damage found during maintenance must be corrected immediately or reported for repair. In case of evident danger for operating personnel or for the inspection system, shut down the system immediately and put it to use again only after the defects have been eliminated.
  • Only genuine spare parts have been certified by our quality assurance service. To ensure safe and reliable operation, only use genuine spare parts.
  • Use genuine fuses only, with the specified ampere rating.
  • If any parts are dismounted during maintenance, it must be ensured that they are remounted appropriately after the maintenance work has been completed.
  • Always observe the setting tolerances of parts which must be adjusted.
  • The connecting parts of elements which are subject to load are to be mounted with suitable tools (e.g. torque wrench).
  • Used parts and replaced operating materials must be disposed of in accordance with the applicable environmental protection regulations.
  • After major maintenance and after modifications, the system has to be checked. The results of all checks must be recorded in writing

Exclamação  Crushing, shearing, cutting, stubbing through improper use of tools!

Observe the instructions as follows

  • Observe the relevant regulations for the prevention of accidents.
  • Use appropriate mounting and transport facilities.
  • Avoid jamming and pinching through appropriate arrangements.
  • Use only suitable tools and, if required, special tools.
  • Use lifting equipment and tools properly.
  • Wear suitable equipment (e. g. helmet, protective glasses, shoes and gloves).
  • After maintenance work has been completed, the following activities must be performed:
    • Remove any tools, foreign parts and operating materials.
    • In case of repair or replacement of pneumatic/hydraulic/electric/electronic components observe the individual settings.
    • Perform a test run and a functional check of the components and safety devices.
