Companies around the world are excited about the potential of Industry 4.0 technologies to improve their operations, as well as the cost savings new high-tech equipment can deliver to their company. However, a lack of expertise on effective maintenance and lubrication could seriously disrupt companies’ efforts to maximize the potential of their high-tech equipment investments.
Collaboration will be key to overcoming these obstacles and unlocking progress.
Too many companies still underestimate the impact that optimising lubrication can have on the bottom line. When in fact this is essential for companies to realise the potential total cost of ownership (TCO) savings from new high-tech equipment and proper maintenance.
At Shell, we pride ourselves on working closely together with customers to help them seize opportunities to get the most out of new technologies. This sharing of expertise will only become more valuable for helping companies navigate the changes ahead.
