Avoiding Manufacturing Problems

After I graduated from college, I started working in my parent's factory. They put me in a management position, and I realized that with that responsibility came a great burden to make the company better. I started realizing that manufacturing problems were eating away at our profits, so I did what I could to make things right. Little by little, I was able to completely revamp the entire process, and before we knew it, the factory was productive and wonderful again. This blog is all about avoiding manufacturing problems so that you can enjoy a great bottom line financially and continued success.

How To Keep Your Fence Gate In Optimal Shape

Depending on how high-tech your fence gate is, it may be the most expensive part of the entire setup. Even if it isn't, it is still a crucial part of the fence because without a properly working gate, no one can get in or out. Therefore, you will want to do your best to make sure that you are keeping your fence gate in optimal shape.

Keep The Bolts And Screws Tight

Even if the gate is no where near the point of completely detaching from the fencing system, if the bolts or screws are loose, the gate can start to wiggle loose and it could begin to lean. When this happens, there will be an extra amount of weight that is placed on the hinges, as the gate is most likely pulling away from the end with the hinges. The longer the gate is allowed to sit like that, the more likely it is that the hinges will start to bend or pull out of the posts. Therefore, you will want to take it upon yourself to gently tighten the bolts and screws on your gate every couple of weeks. Make sure that you are not over-tightening them, as this could result in the stripping of the bolts and screws.

Spray Lubricant On All Metal Parts

Rust can not only form quickly, but it can spread quickly too. When it is allowed to eat away at the metal parts of your fence gate, you may find yourself in a position where you have to pay to replace all of those pieces. Depending on the type and size of your gate, that could add up to a substantial amount of money. It is much more affordable to simply find a lubricant in a spray can, as this will be the easiest method to apply it to the metal on your fence gate. You should be able to find this type of spray lubricant at a nearby home improvement center, large department store, or hardware store.

Check For Pests 

If your fence gate is made of wood, you will need to keep an eye out for insects that could be burrowing into the wood to make a home for themselves. When this issue is not caught early enough, you could find that he majority of the wood will have been destroyed. At that point, you may have to replace the entire gate. Therefore, you will want to look for any new holes in the wood. If you find signs of an insect infestation inside of your wood gate, you will want to treat it with insect killer.

When you are proactive with the maintenance of your gate, you will not have to worry as much about your gate failing any time soon.
