right when you need them

Manager,Upgrades and Conversions After Sales, Rieter.
Rieter is strengthening its
service offering by implementing preventive maintenance packages
for use in overhauls of Rieter machines. This new solution
ensures customers can order the parts in one package, right when
they need them.
Fiercely competitive market conditions mean that
yarn producers have to minimize production stops. One planned
maintenance overhaul operation is then less costly than several
small urgent production stoppages. Rieter now offers preventive
maintenance packages for overhauls of Rieter machines to help
producers stay one step ahead of competition by maximizing

The best original quality of parts supplied by Rieter is
nothing new. Rieter preventive maintenance packages provide the
same original quality parts with considerably lower costs than
if each were purchased individually. Through these packages,
customers benefit from Rieter’s strong industry expertise in
three main areas:
Maximum uptime – one planned overhaul operation
instead of several small production stops for maintenance.
Best original quality – supplied by Rieter.
Cost savings – considerably lower
costs when acquiring the parts as a package.

of time (Fig. 1a, 1b).
This enables customers to easily plan ahead their preventive
maintenance. Parts included in preventive maintenance packages
are customized to each specific machine configuration and
