Supporting you throughout the life cycle of production facilities and equipment

Your life-cycle partner for industrial automation, electrification, and digitalization

Preventive maintenance according to the life-cycle plan ensures the reliability of production and extends the service life of equipment. As your partner, Insta will support you throughout the system life cycle from planning to maintenance over the years. We not just measure or maintain – we build the future together with the customer.

Life-cycle planning minimizes the risks, costs, and environmental impact as well as contributes to timely investments

In electrical automation, the goal of life-cycle planning is to optimize the life-cycle cost of a system or piece of equipment, minimize its environmental impact, and manage the risks involved.

Effective life-cycle planning and maintenance enable significant cost reductions. Reducing the environmental impact of products and services may include improving resource-efficiency and energy-efficiency as well as the reuse of materials. Professional life-cycle planning can identify and manage the risks concerning a system or piece of equipment, thereby preventing unforeseen production outages or malfunctions.

The guidelines for life-cycle management are defined together

Our life-cycle services for customer systems or equipment cover the planning, implementation of actions, and maintenance in the scope agreed upon with the customer. We can offer you the maintenance and development services for automation and electrical systems as well as the training and on-call services you need.

In addition to contract-specific service packages, we offer life cycle, upkeep, and maintenance services as separate project-specific services.

After defining the guidelines with you, we can start going through your equipment systematically and prepare a long-term plan that presents the future maintenance needs of your equipment. We carefully document all of the work.

Insta’s maintenance and development services secure the availability of district heating

Tampereen Energia chose Insta to take care of the maintenance and development tasks of the PLCs used at district heating centers, pumping stations, and mobile district cooling containers. This equipment secures the availability of facilities during production and contributes to keeping the overall system functional.

– During production, availability is essential, and the immediate response to malfunctions is required. Insta’s services have been quick. The work has been great, and the related reports have been delivered swiftly, explains Electrical Supervisor Heikki Paasikko from Tampereen Energia.

Data brings intelligence and forecasting into maintenance

Maintenance and renovation of equipment are also needed for the collection and transfer of data. System and equipment upgrades and replacements provide opportunities to create something new and develop the business further through digitalization.

Decades of experience in working in industrial environments and investments in continuous development make us a qualified partner for data-driven industrial maintenance projects. Industrial data projects make production processes more stable, improve productivity, and create forecast models and engines that contribute to better adjustment and control of maintenance and production.

Intelligent maintenance based on measurements and data analysis drives sustainable development, improves competitiveness, and acts as a strategic tool. Since intelligent maintenance is guided by expected changes in equipment condition that are forecast based on regular measurements rather than running hours or production volumes, it reduces the risk of production failures.

Total optimized preventive maintenance is reflected in production through various production methods and strategies. It refers to advance measures for optimizing the production capability and equipment lifespan. This ensures the reliability of production and extends the service life of equipment.
