For decades, industrial leaders have considered the maintenance cost as a measure for how well the production units are running; the lower the cost, the better. It is now time to throw out old ideas on machine maintenance. The cost-saving trend is moving towards a maintenance program that targets the root causes of machine wear and failure. Predictive and preventive methods are now history. Proactive maintenance is the new philosophy, and its methods save the industries millions of maintenance dollars every year. Alignment of rotating machines should be top priority.[sic Fixturlaser]
