Safe machine start-up after the lockdown period


The Omega Sinto Support Team is here to help you
Our Support Team may be working from home, but we all have full access to our support documentation and are available to you with the same level of service as before. We are also still making UK site visits where absolutely necessary, as long as we are able to strictly respect Government advice. We are proud to be supporting those of you who have risen to the challenge of staying operational throughout this difficult time.
However, if you have had to stop production for a period of time whilst some adjustment was made or social distancing was not possible, we are here for you also. Please find below our recommended start up checks for our most popular machines. The checks may also be of use to you on any similar non-Omega Sinto machinery that has been out of use for some time.
For any assistance and further information, or to book your summer shutdown service, please don't hesitate to get in touch with us via email at support@ofml.net or by telephone.
