Industrial Maintenance refers to the service maintenance technicians do in manufacturing and
production settings to ensure optimal equipment operating conditions. Industrial machinery is
used in various manufacturing settings and often needs troubleshooting and adjustments to work
An industrial maintenance technician is responsible for various maintenance tasks, typically in
manufacturing. They install and inspect machines and electrical equipment and perform
preventive maintenance to ensure that industrial machines remain operational.
There are five unique types of industrial maintenance: preventive, corrective, predictive,
condition-based, and predetermined. Many companies find it difficult to differentiate between
different maintenance strategies or what maintenance program is ideal for them.
