Maintenance and safety are of great importance in keeping and preserving equipment and the facility in a functional state.

Browse our wide range of industrial automation & control products from market-leading manufacturers like Eaton, Hammond, L-com, Schneider Electric, Brady, Omron IA, 3M, and many more.

Maintenance is not only necessary to ensure the reliability of technical structures or productivity of the company, but regular maintenance has an important role in providing safer and healthier working conditions. Lack of maintenance, or inadequate maintenance, can cause serious and deadly accidents or health problems.

The maintenance function is evolving from being after-the-fact, to planned, to predictive, to self-fixing. Developments in operational sensor technologies, combined with advances in information technologies including virtual or augmented reality (VR/AR), cloud-based platforms and analytics, are helping to provide real-time data on performance levels and help to outline predictive or scheduled maintenance without losing equipment efficiency.
