Does Your Equipment Earn Its Keep?
Updated: Feb 21
It’s a shame to clutter up the space in your garage workshop is full of dusty tools that you don’t use regularly – multiple tools for the same job that just don’t quite hit the mark, require fussy set up, or are prone to breakdown. You know, the ones you pass on while you grab for the trusty workhorse of a tool nobody is allowed to borrow for fear of losing it. Tools that don’t make the cut, need to go.
How to Measure: Overall Equipment Effectiveness = Availability × Performance × Quality
Calculating Equipment OEE
Availability = Available Equipment Operating Time ÷ Planned Project Duration
Performance = Total Sq. Ft. ÷ Complete Setup, Cleanup and Operating Time) ÷ Ideal Rate
Quality = Good Results ÷ Total Sq. Ft.
Unused vapor blast equipment rusting quietly in the equipment bay doesn’t do commercial enterprise any good, either. In the industrial setting, the tool is power and the measure for “earning its keep” is Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) – the golden core of ROI. OEE success is a measurement of how well equipment earns its keep; and it’s a pretty good indicator of how often the equipment will get used.
The bad news is that a lot of vapor abrasive blast equipment are OEE fails. The good news is you’re about to discover CleanerBlast, a state-of-the art machine receiving rave reviews from owners - one that actually does earn its keep, and more.
AVAILABILITY: Spend more time on the blast hose. CleanerBlast is always ready for work.
