Let’s face it, every plant manager knows the cost of downtime. It is something all businesses would like to avoid. One thing the pandemic brought to the forefront is not only how much revenue can be lost during downtime but also how it can mess up the supply chain and how that effect is felt globally.
Luckily Atlas Copco offers a few options to lower the risk of downtime on its products. Find out more about the options below.

SMARTLINK captures live data from your compressed air equipment and translates them in clear insights. At a glance you can check uptime, energy efficiency and machine health. SMARTLINK 24/7 monitoring technology is offered with just about all new compressors. This is not about being ‘tied’ to your compressor but instead giving you peace of mind to ensure you can always be in control – no matter where you are working from. You can also think of remote monitoring as an ongoing audit that happens 24/7, and importantly, any potential issues are identified before they can become serious problems.

Another way to limit downtime is to add a second system. Adding a second compressor or running two smaller ones instead of one large one, for example, has never been easier. This is a contingency plan that after the last couple of years of supply chain issues that makes sense for a lot of companies.
