In this article, it will present a example of the maintenance of a machine PERO (D 2504-019) for cleaning metal parts in the working conditions of renowned OEM company in producing filters from automotive industry. The maintenance process is of particular importance in order to use production capacities to the maximum extent. Maintenance is an indispensable segment of any production system. It follows that maintenance should be adapted to these conditions, and be economical and efficient, so as not to slow down the progress of the production system. Various maintenance methods have developed alongside the development of technology, all with the aim of increasing efficiency and reducing costs. This entails the need for increasing knowledge and skills of the workers themselves in the maintenance system. Large sums of money are invested in modern industry, in order to prevent monetary losses caused by system failures. If the machine tools, devices, and accessories are not maintained on time and adequately, there will be a stoppage of production, which is extremely inconvenient for the company. When the machine stops, delivery is delayed, which leads to a psychological effect on the worker, who is then put under pressure to make up for lost time. In this article, the whole procedure of cleaning, mantenance and inspection of machine PERO (D 2504-019) through 13 steps has been studied. The indicators of the reliable operation of the analyzed machine through the analysis of the machine’s operation, the analysis of downtime, and the analysis of the occurrence of failures through the obtained values of MTTR (Mean Time to Repair) and MTBF (Mean Time Between Failures) are presented in details.
