Breakdown Prevention

When your business is dependent on the machinery in your workshop it pays to have peace of mind. A broken machine can lead to loss of orders, falling sales and a damaged reputation.

Customers are already experiencing the benefits of our Maintenance Schedule, whatever the manufacturer of your machine. The best way to avoid production delays is to invest in a Service and Maintenance Schedule.

Scheduled Maintenance

During the service visit our engineers will:

  • Clean, adjust and lubricate as required
  • Check function of isolators, switches, motors and lamps.
  • Check presence of limiter switches where required.
  • Check earth bond and insulation resistance.
  • Check machine hold down bolts.
  • Inspect and report any defects found in the equipment.
  • Test each machine for stopping times in line with PUWER 98 regulations.
  • We endeavour to ensure that the machinery operates as near as possible to the manufacturers standards.
  • Advise on spare part requirements.


Engineer Call Out Service

Even the most well maintained machines can breakdown. When the worst happens, we've got you covered. Ritchie Engineering Services can help you get up and running quickly, we will send out one of our engineers to diagnose the problem, and if it can be fixed there and then we will complete the work and provide you with a detailed report so you know exactly what we've done.

If your machine can't be fixed, for example we have to source parts, we will provide you with a quote explaining exactly what is required and the cost to carry out the repair, meaning you'll be back up and running in no time.
