Investing in industrial equipment of quality, such as the ones offered by CDA, is essential for the long-term success of your business. However, to get the most out of these investments, it’s important to put up a proper maintenance programme. 


In this article, we’ll share some practical tips for maintaining CDA’s packaging machines, whether they are fillers, screwers, labellers or monoblocks. These good practices have been created to maximise their durability and efficiency.



Plan regular inspections 


Scheduling regular inspections of your CDA equipment helps with keeping it running smoothly and preventing breakdowns. This is because it allows you to detect signs of wear and tear as well as deteriorated consumables. During these inspections, be sure to check all parts of the machine. Look at the moving parts such as belts, chains and bearings, carefully. Also inspect electrical components, such as cables and connections, to make sure they are in good working order. 


Do not forget to check other critical parts of the machine, such as sensors, actuators and control systems. Make sure they are working properly.



Cleaning and maintenance of components 


Carry out regular cleaning of your machine and its components in accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendations (usually contained in the manual). Make sure that parts such as conveyors, pumps and valves are free of debris and properly lubricated to ensure an optimum operation. Also remember to check the various cells, which can malfunction if they get dust or splashes.



Staff training 


Invest in training your staff so that they fully understand how CDA’s equipment works and learn the best maintenance practices. Well-trained staff can be spot on, as they identify and resolve problems more quickly, minimising unplanned downtime.

CDA offers a team of qualified technicians who come directly to your company, to commission your machine and train your employees. On-site training allows your staff to become operational and master the various functions of the equipment. We offer different levels of training to suit your staff and their growing skills. Moreover, these technicians are also available to provide ongoing technical support, and answer any questions you may have about the use and maintenance of the machine.



Use of original spare parts 


In the event of maintenance or replacement of parts, it is essential to use only original spare parts supplied by CDA. These parts are specially designed for your equipment, guaranteeing compatibility and quality. By opting for original parts, you preserve the performance of your equipment while avoiding the risks associated with the use of inferior parts.


CDA’s after-sales service takes care of spare parts management. If required, our after-sales team is on hand to advise you on the specific parts you need, and to ensure their rapid delivery. We can also schedule a visit from one of our technicians to replace the part (if necessary). Thanks to this efficient service, you’ll benefit from a fast, reliable assistance to keep your CDA filling, screwing or labelling machine in perfect working order.

Regular maintenance is essential to extend the life and maintain the optimum performance of CDA’s industrial packaging equipment. By following these practical tips, you can maximise the return on your investment while keeping production running smoothly and efficiently.
