What You Should Know About Indramat Servos Repair
30 August, 2023
Indramat servos are designed to operate flawlessly for an incredibly long time if they are handled properly. This means that it might be just about impossible to think of them having to need repair. However, they are, like almost any product, vulnerable to the time factor. Over a period, they do begin to show signs of wear and tear, which is when they need to be fixed at the earliest possible to avoid any downtime in the facility where they are put to use.
Points to Consider When Looking for Indramat Repair
As Indramat is now defunct, it becomes essential to find a reliable source that does a trustworthy job with the repair because there is no way to turn to the company for assistance. Here are a few factors that can be considered when trying to get an Indramat servo repaired.
- Use only original parts – If the third-party repair shop offers to repair the servo using only original parts, this may or may not be a red alert trigger. Sometimes, the repair shop may genuinely have original spare parts in their stock, which is a good sign. At the same time, it must be remembered that Indramat products and components were last produced close to two decades ago. Hence, it is not always possible to have original parts in stock, even now after such a long period.
- Brand new servomotors – This is again a cause of concern when the third party offers a brand-new servo or component in place of the faulty counterpart. There can be no brand-new Indramat products as they are no longer being produced.
- Indramat authorized repair – When the repair shop claims that it has been authorized by Indramat to repair its products for customers, it is a clear sign to stay away. A company that no longer exists cannot authorize a present-day repair shop to service its parts.
- Always in stock – Indramat products and components are considered to be legacy parts. This implies that a replacement is possible until the problematic unit is fixed. Keep off a third-party repair shop that claims to always have a stock of these legacy parts in its portfolio. This is just not possible. Similarly, when you try to make an online order of such a part or product shown to be “in stock” on the website but does not get added to your cart, stop attempting to buy the same right there.
