How do I know when to change the steel pads on my shirt units?

The steel pads on a shirt unit last for approximately 160,000 presses for vacuum cabinets and about 180,000-225,000 presses for other non-vacuum cabinet units. The other indicators that a steel unit should be changed is when the presser starts to notice a lot of buttons breaking, more wrinkles around the pocket, sides and shoulder areas, and increased touch up time on shirts. Another good indicator is when the covers and padding seem to need to be changed more often, or if the presser is using thicker flannel than with the manufacturer recommends.
