AROPLAX Corporation specializes in precision mold design/building and quality injection molding production. Based in Monticello, Minnesota, they service the automotive, medical, industrial, agricultural, and consumer products industries. AROPLAX chose eMaint X3 CMMS to schedule their Preventive Maintenance tasks… with great results.
The maintenance department at AROPLAX was faced with the difficult, if not impossible task of handling its maintenance functions and responsibilities with no computerized or automated system in place. The inability to properly schedule and track preventive maintenance on their critical assets was creating serious issues with downtime, subsequently causing problems in production and having a significant financial impact on the company.
Implementation: A successful startup
Even before being selected as the vendor of choice, eMaint proved its ability to provide AROPLAX with the solution it was seeking. Working in partnership with AROPLAX maintenance manager, Ed Radeke, eMaint specialists configured AROPLAX’s X3 account – including screen layouts, field lookups and system options – to meet his objectives. In addition, eMaint team members provided a series of targeted, hands-on learning sessions, known as the eMaint “Road To Success”, to ensure that AROPLAX personnel could easily begin using their new CMMS solution.
Within 3 weeks of being introduced to eMaint for the first time, AROPLAX is now up and running with the maintenance management tool they needed. With eMaint X3 in place, they could now properly schedule and track their critical maintenance tasks and get accurate reports on their assets and workflow.
AROPLAX has confidence in their eMaint system and in the team that supports it. Maintenance personnel and managers find the system comprehensive and easy to use, with the right data analysis tools necessary for making good management decisions. As a result of the system’s efficiencies, the downtime rate over-all has decreased dramatically and this has had a very positive impact on the organization as a whole.
