Lubrication is no less important to computer systems, even though they are often perceived as electronic. The computer field engineer must provide 52 Maintenance Fundamentals proper lubrication to printers, tape drives, and disks that spin at 3,600 rpm. A lot of maintenance time is invested in lubrication. The effect on production uptime can be measured nationally in billions of dollars. CALIBRATION Calibration is a special form of preventive maintenance whose objective is to keep measurement and control instruments within specified limits.

If initial records indicate that the equipment remains within the required accuracy for successive calibrations, then the intervals may be lengthened. On the other hand, if equipment requires frequent adjustment or repair, the intervals should be shortened. Any equipment that does not have specific calibration intervals should be (1) examined at least every 6 months, and (2) calibrated at intervals of no longer than 1 year. Adjustments or assignment of calibration intervals should be done in such a way that a minimum of 95% of equipment or standards of the same type is within tolerance when submitted for regularly scheduled recalibration.

Record Keeping The foundation records for preventive maintenance are the equipment files. In a small operation with less than 200 pieces of complex equipment, the records can easily be maintained on paper. The equipment records provide information for purposes other than preventive maintenance. The essential items include the following:             Equipment identification number Equipment name Equipment product/group/class Location Use meter reading Preventive maintenance interval(s) Use per day Last preventive maintenance due Next preventive maintenance due Cycle time for preventive maintenance Crafts required, number of persons, and time for each Parts required.
